Woke up to this puddle (pic) *Update-New Pic

Woke up to this puddle under the truck. Right in the middle coming off the crank pulley, itís coolant. Looks like it is leaking right above it. Maybe the water pump?

I took a mirror and inspected everywhere, but was unable to locate the source.

Any help in the right direction would be appreciated.

If not the water pump, I'd look closely at the oil cooler o-ring. I see you have an "updated oil cooler". Is it a Ford piece or another brand?

I believe mine is a sinister diesel brand. Been about 7 years since I installed it.

I can find no fluid anywhere except on the crank pulley like pictured. I feel like it’s dripping down onto that but can’t find anything. I might be wrong though.

Probably the water pump then. If you're running a sinister oil cooler what kind of deltas are you seeing? Have you had any IPR screen problems? Dieselsite makes a good lifetime guaranteed metal impeller water pump at a fair price.

If it's coming from above the pump, there's that fat o-ring between the intake and front cover. Just a thought

I suspect that o-ring as well right now. I just hate to take everything off and it be something else.

Check your coolant hose clamps! My friend had one snap from fatigue, leading him to replace his water pump without need.

just keep adding coolant, then fix it once the whole system is flushed.

Update

Drove the truck Wednesday for a short period no leak.

Took the truck to work today. 30min drive 45mph, stop and go with lights. Get out and it’s noticeably leaking. See attached video.

I searched the engine bay, and found nothing. It still seems to be originating right above the crank pulley.

Now I am thinking it is a red color, making me think it’s ATF?

look in the radiator degas bottle and see if the coolant is red, the OEM coolant is gold.
