Bubbling coming from up near the hood on the passenger side...what is it??

Just bought a 6.0L and I'm going to be getting rid of my 7.3L Excursion soon. I was cleaning it up today and noticed some bubbling coming from up near the hood on the passenger side. I tried attaching a video and it wouldn't accept it, so here's a picture with an arrow pointing to the bubbling liquid.

Any idea what this could be? This is the first I've seen of it, although I haven't been driving it much as of late.

Thanks!!

What causes that? Is it something easy to diagnose and fix?

Basically it looks like the tubing cracked where it goes into the evaporator. Most likely you'll have to replace the evaporator. You might be able to have it repaired but I don't know being it's aluminum and the joint is contaminated with refrigerant oil. Repair might be costly and reliability maybe questionable. Once evap. coil is replaced system will have to be evacuated and then recharged. What caused it who knows vibration, stress bad solder joint. I have no idea how hard it is to replace coil but evacuation and recharge I'd pay someone. I do commercial industrial a/c work and don't mess with my automotive a/c.
