6.0 coolant leak

we recently discover a fluid leak on our 2004 F-350 coming from the rear of the engine above the starter, it appears to be a slight coolant leak, my question is: how extensive a repair is this (cost & length of repair), should we use a ford dealer to do this repair? We have a extended warrenty to cover up to $2500 repair per occurance.

sounds like a head gasket maybe but could also be a heater hose which wouldt be a big deal i don't think, just hard to reach.
Let Ford do it if you have the coverage.

Also check this. There is a let blue hose about 2" long next to your EGR cooler. It is temperamental. It can leak a little when your truck is heated up, Or when it is cooling down and it is hard to see because the coolant runs down the back of the motor.
The clamps start to give.

Just a small possibility.
