ok
i called the mechanic today to checkup on the truck.

they found that the heater core and an oring on the water pump was leaking.
so they temporally bypassed the heater core and replaced the oring in the pump.

then they drained the oil and hooked up the cooling system to the pressure machine at the shop and left it with it on to see if there was any coolant in the tray in the morning.

no leaks detected.

so then they talked with the other mechanics to determine the next thing to do.
they put a uv dye in the oil system to check for contamination in the coolant after some driving.

so i picked it up today and drove it home. next week ill drive it about a 100 mi then drive it back to the shop for them to find the leak with the dye.
