COOLANT LEAK

I have a coolant leak on my 02 and cant seem to locate it. It looks like it could be from the bottom hose but I am not 100% certain. I have had great luck with you guys opinions before and thought I would see if any of you have experienced this before. Also it just turned 130,000 miles and this is the first coolant problem. Thanks ahead of time guys!

Our engines were cast in sand and eventually that leaches out of the block and ends up in the coolant and wears the seals on the pump.

It kind of looks like it is leaking where it goes into the pump. Is there a gasket there or is it just a hose and clamp. I guess I should just try to replace the hose first. Any ideas?

What you really need to do is get your hands on a coolant system pressure tester(including the correct adapter for the coolant tank). Chances are it IS just that gasket. But there's always that chance it could be something else.

My leak looks like it coming from the hose on the tank and leaking down and landing just under the battery on the pass side. then it will slowly dribble down and land on the front of the leaf spring and then to the ground. looks like its coming from the hose but not sure. this is on the list of things to do this weekend.

Just a basic 01 F350 CCLB SRW -Good from a far but far from good
