Coolant Leak

I have a 2008 F250 with about 106,000k on it and have a coolant leak coming from the center of the engine. It does not appear to be the hoses, but it is tough to see in there. Makes a puddle when the engine is stopped, drips down and off the bottom pully. Sometimes it does not leak at all, others leaks a good bit. I bought the truck second hand so i don't know if the hoses have been changed but they have the white ends on them.

Any info would be appriciated.

I do have the delete kit waiting on standby. The emissions are off on my truck and is tuned.

It turned out to be my water pump leaking. Very hard to see the water pump to see where the leak was coming from.

Would that also somehow cause the degas bottle to just about fill completely full? To fix it was it a seal or something or was it junk?

Water pump was junk, had to change it. Brought it to a local diesel mechanic and it cost about $450 for pump and labor. My degass bottle level was dropping due to leak, not filling up
