Coolant leak, stop leak yes or no?

I have a small cold water leak on my 99 7.3. It's comong from front cover at top.
Two or three drops after parking during cool weather. Don't really want to
pull engine to R&R cover as oil pan has to be removed to a affect this job.
I've been considering bars leak silver liquid but really don't like using stuff like that.
It's been leaking for over 2 winters now with no ill effect except the small droplets.
any quick fix ideas?

I would never use that "quick fix" stuff. No such thing on a diesel turbo.
Depending on what coolant you have and how you've serviced it, you might have pitting from cavitation and need to pull the cover.
