Coolant leaks but not a head gasket??

My truck has lost coolant at very random times. It does seem to only really happen when the outside pressure changes. I have tried to track down the leak and the last time I did it seemed to be coming out of the valley and down the back of the block. I have a orange hose under the turbo. The more I think about it could the cooler be clogged? Are there any ways to check with out the truck being down. I know my head gaskets are not blown, no crazy smoke either.

Like I said it normally does it in the mornings and when the barometeric pressure changes. I am at a loss.

It is likely the orange hose, there is an updated bleu hose, change it before it leaves you stranded on side of the road. You need a monitor, read the stickies.
