coolant leak

Hi there, your leak is more then likely the egr cooler hose that is under the turbo. The headgaskets on a 6.0 wont leak coolant externally. If you get up on top of your motor and look down on under the front of your turbo there will be an orange or blue hose about 2.5 inches long. More then likely an orange one. They will leak and run down the bellhousing on the pass side.

Look around here a bit. I think I seen last night someone saying something about a hosefitting in that area above the starter cracking. I think they said it drips right on the starter. Its worth a look.


There you go I was too slow. this knows more about what hes talking about.

sounds t me like the conectio hose from the egr cler to the oil cooler is leaking , fairly common in early 6.0 , there s a updated hose to fix that problem, its blue , if that hose is leaking it will drip down right by the starter
