06 Powerstroke Water Leak

I have a 06 F350 Powerstroke that I purchased new. I have a very stlight water leak that leaves a small puddle under the truck and best I can tell is dripping from the passenger side rear corner of the oil pan. Also I see droplets on the starter. It has head studs that were installed at around 40k miles. It now has 113k miles. I had a egr delete installed the summer of 2014. Before installing the egr delete, it would puke slightly under heavy loads. Since installing the egr delete I have not seen it puke any fluids. But now, I have the external leak near the rear of the engine. I have looked at the valley of the block and see no water up top. It will lose about a quart every two weeks. Thanks for any help!

Egr coolant hose could be leaking

Re: 06 Powerstroke Water Leak

Is that the hose that attaches to the U shaped egr tube?

Re: 06 Powerstroke Water Leak

As best I can see, I don't see any water around this hose or in the valley. Of course it's pretty hard to see through all the stuff in the way.

Re: 06 Powerstroke Water Leak

Have you checked the vacuum valve for the heater that is near the rear passenger side of the vehicle? It controls the flow of coolant to the heater core.

Re: 06 Powerstroke Water Leak

Check J tube/hose for EGR delete and heater control valve.

Re: 06 Powerstroke Water Leak

Both the J tube hose and heater control valve do not seem to be leaking.
