Coolant/Oil leak?

So I've had an oil leak for a few months now...its mainly running down the left side of the bell housing and dripping down. Well today at work after the truck has sat in 30* weather for about 5 hours it started leaking coolant...from the exact same spot on the bell housing. Like...the coolant was landing in the exact same spot as the oil. Once I started the truck and got it warm the leak stopped....

The coolant bottle has been removed/installed about 6 times this year due to injector work (we all know about that)...dunno if that has anything to do with it though.

any ideas?

sounds like it just leaks under pressure before the t-stat opens.. i would check the hoses to the heater core first... there is a coolant line the runs over the motor on the upper firewall that might be leaking.... or check the hose that runs to your egr cooler if you have one...
