New 6.0 Owner Coolant Leak, HELP PLEASE

Bought the Wife an 05 Excursion with 75,000 miles on it. Noticed today a pretty large spot of coolant in the driveway.

Seems to be coming from the the rear of the drivers side exhaust manifold. the u-joint on the front driveshat is completely wet. Im low on coolant in the overflow tank and it doesnt seem to be coming from the cap.

Anybody have any ideas, never worked on these before any help would be great. Thanks

I'm around the lake red rock area in Iowa if anybody is close.

If you look under the over flow bottle there are hoses running to a Y shaped fitting. The hose that comes off the bottom runs to a meatl tube. The tube could have a pin hole leak in it. The tube just bolts it to the water pump housing it has a oring as well and can be a pain to get out. Good luck
