6.7 leaking anti-freeze

My truck is about 2 months old and it has 7000 miles on it. Well any way a couple days ago I smelled a sweet smell when I got out, but I didn't think anything because I pulled up beside one of our 6.4 pickups; and I knew it had to be the other pickup. Sure enough the next morning when I go out side to go to work my truck has dumped the whole tank out on the ground. I was in a hurry so I filled it up and went on. Now it slowly leaks the tank empty, but I don't know where from.

Looks to be coming out of a aluminum box by the driver side battery, but thats part of the inter-cooler and doesn't it have its on tank?

Don't they call that the aftercooler? That's just what I heard from someone who works on trucks. Just as a side question

FWIW, I saw this problem posted on other sites as well. The person used a different nickname and the circumstance was different, so it appears this could be a known issue. Might not affect all trucks and certainly hasn't appeared on my loaner truck.

Can anyone else confirm this?
