Anti freeze leaking

The other day I was looking at my truck and noticed a wet spot on the frame on the drivers side and I popped the hood and sure enough I was low on coolant. What is wrong with it? I looked to see if I could find where it was coming from but I couldnt tell. Any help would be appreciated

If it's at the front, it's likely the rad.

If it's towards the firewall, it's the hose that goes between the coolant feed tube and the horizontal EGR cooler, should yours still be installed.

Sounds more like it's puking. Need to check the HG and EGR coolers.

Is it uptop?

Is the degas bottle stained? If you take the cap off, is there white crusty crap around the neck?

If you can post a pic of the area you're seeing the leak, it would be helpful.

I had the exact same issue as you. After two trips to the dealer this is what was causing it....
(1) EGR was completely broken off
(2) Head Gaskets had to be replaced
