Weird Leak

So it has warmed up here on the East Coast. A few nights it has dropped into the low 30s tho. On both of those nights, I have had coolant drip from the passenger side back of my motor. About a total 2/3 FL OZ I would say. Each time I see it, I am in a hurry for work and cannot dig. My first thought would be the hose on the EGR cooler delete. Any other ideas while I am stuck at work and cannot look for another 10 hours......

Mods in e-sig.

Wow! 10hrs to think about a leak!! In that case, your pass side head is cracked!! Ha! JK!!


My guess would be one of these--- EGR hose, oil cooler housing gasket, heater core hose.

Thanks. I already visioned myself pulling the turbo and having days into the 15 drops of ELC I just found.

Gawd I hope that 3" hose is wet......

The truck is fine, your wife is playing a cruel prank. She has been sneaking out and leaving a small coolant puddle under your truck!

It is because I am a gear head or because I love my toys that I found this leak, thought the worse and spent all night looking at Powermax turbos, injectors, remote oil cooler (I mean why not, I probably have to take it all apart right). I planned the weekend I would have to take the top of this motor apart to fix this leak that I deemed to be something horroble.

Yea, it was the freaking T I spliced into the heater hose for the dang coolant filter. It just needed tightened.
