Not sure if you have an EGR delete or not, but either way, check the hose coming from the EGR cooler or the re-route hose from your EGR delete. It's in that same area you're talking about. My re-route hose has leaked a few times.

I wouldn't consider it "good news" just yet. Just "possibly" goo news. I don't have a diagram, but the hose in question is passenger side, on top of the engine. You should be able to see/feel it if you're over the top on that side. Should be either blue or orange in color..
