where is the coolant coming from?

so my truck hasnt been run since friday, and when i went outside this afternoon, there was a big puddle of coolant/water under the front of the truck. so i popped the hood and the first place i see water is under the egr cooler... think its bad or is the little rubber hose on it leaking?

It's the rubber hose leaking. This is a very common, but easy to fix problem.

Agree, common for the hose to leak, replace with the updated blue hose.

I call BS. Go back to the dealer and ask for part number RH-153.

You don't need to remove the turbo to replace that hose.

Remove the two t-30 torx bolts from the oil cooler adapter/top plate, seperate the two halfs and pull the top plate with the hose still connected. This use to be a very sweet warranty repair until ford found out how we were doing it. If you are in the SW Fl area I would be more then happy to help/do it for you.
