Just cleaned egr valve ... now

Just Got the egr valve cleaned up, Real nasty. As soon as i started it up and took it out for a spin I noticed a huge water leak toward the right rear of the engine, pretty steady drip. Any ideas?

Check the EGR cooler hose that gets connected to the oil cooler. Also could be a failed coolant gasket were that hose connects to the nipple/cap. While your at it, look for coolant leaking out at the oil cooler area.
