Coolant Leak 1995 7.3 turbo

I'm having a coolant leak I can't tell where its coming from, but its draining down the valley of the motor and off the back. Now I'm fairly new to the powerstrokes but from what I have read and heard they are very predictable, what I mean is there a few select parts that are known to cause problems. I was wondering if this was the case with any sort of coolant leak problem. Im also having a slight oil leak out of the bung on the oil pan were the dip stick tube goes in. Any help on either topic would be appreciated.

-Chris

The only coolant that would be up in the valley would be from the heads. Thats all I can think of.

For the leak around the dipstick you are tallking about I have the same problem and I was told by a mechanic who checked it out that the pan is beginning to rot around the dipstick but I havent got it fixed becuase he said it will cost more than its worth right now.
