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.

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

O and are you sure it's coolant or is it fuel?

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.

When it comes to the oil pan leak there is an o ring behind the large nut on the side of the pan International offers a kit to fix the problem you have to be careful not to drope the in side piece into the pan the part # is1846146091
