Need some help Coolant leak
Last weekend i drove the truck and for sure did not have a coolant leak. This saturday morning I was driving it and realized that the heat was not working and the coolant temp on my gauge was getting high so added a gallon of coolant to it.
I drove an hour and a half with no problems and parked the truck in a sand parking lot for 5 hrs. Checked the coolant before i took off again and it was a gallon low again. Drove an hour and a half home with no problems.
Parked it in the garage over night and there was a puddle under the truck the next morning. I have looked under the truck and over the engine bay while its running and cant see it leaking anywhere.
It is hitting the belt because you can see the coolant residue on the underside of my intake piping and intake elbow. It drips down and runs on the front axle and all over the steering components. I started pulling on the coolers off because iam thinking that it is a water pump but what do you guys thing it could be? I am kind of puzzled.
Any help would be apprciated. ( the single turbo and studs are not in the truck yet so pay no attention to my sig. IT DOES HAVE AN EGR DELETE THOUGH)
