"Coolant Leak" Can't locate! Help

Me again and have new issue. SMH!!!! So I obviously have a coolant leak and it leaks more when the truck is not running. Why is that? But the leak is running down the backside of the motor all the down the bottom of the oil pan drain plug. Where should I check first? Has EGR delete and head studs completed with coolant filtration kit, but don't know if that would be any good info to start with.

leaks more when cool ?

that happens some times the pressure is off and lets the leak start

check the heater valve and associated lines

the coolant filter tee also a dry paper towel on your fingers can help

Is the egr delete the type with the j pipe and hose connection to the cooler? If so that should be your first place to look.

You see, in this world there's two kinds of people my friend....those with loaded guns, and those who dig.

You dig.

Will do and I believe it's with the j pipe. Thanks buddy. When I figure out what the issue I will post the after result.

yes, J pipe is definitely the first place to look. same thing happened to me, the hose expanded and the hose clamps cut the hose causing a leak that was impossible to tell where it was coming from beside it being damp underneath the turbo/ engine valley
