Hey guys, been lurking for awhile and frankly I can not find anything to point me in the right direction for this.

Its a 97 e350 passenger van

I found coolant in the valley of my motor last week. Heres the backround....

Van sat for a year and was driven 10k miles in 5 years. When I got it a couple months ago I had to replace the fuel pump, fuel bowl rubber lines, and turbo pedastil o rings. When I put it all back together the valley was spotless.

So far ive checked my heater hoses and attempted to look everywhere I could think of. Needless to say Ive came up empty and have searched the internet for a week in my spare time for pointers. Came up with nothing.

I pulled the dipstick and didnt see any coolant in the oil as well.

Anyone have any ideas where I should go next? This is the first time ive ever worked on a diesel or owned one so please treat me like an idiot with your suggestions.
