05 F350 6.0 Coolant leaking on ground

Just did a coolant flush on my 6.0 and today after driving I notice coolant leaking off the bottom pulley. To this point everything is stock. The head gaskets were replaced 2 years ago. Prior to flushing I had to often add coolant especially when towing. Not showing up in the exhaust but believe it may be getting boiled out in the egr cooler. Will bad EGR cooler show up on the ground? Water pump?
Thanks!!! Bryant

Could be a number of things. Bad pump; hose; loose clamps; bad freeze plug; leaking gaskets etc

Mine was losing coolant also; leaking on the ground. Turned out it was a weld on the EGR Cooler assembly. I deleted it. Problem gone.

My coolant leak turned out to be the degas bottle itself. Replaced and gone.
