Leak

I am having a hard time finding this leak. 2010 6.4.
I come our of the store and see a small puddle under my truck. The drip is about every 4 to 5 seconds. I starr the truck and the speed of the drip didnt seem to change. I back up and sure enough its antifreeze. I drive 6 miles home and shut it off, get out and now no leak. Next morning drive to work. There for 9 hours and come out and the drip is back. Drive 6 blocks no drip again. Looks like it might be coming from the hose that connects to the back of the horizontal egr cooler but not sure. It appears to be dripping on the frame right behind the left engine mount and running down.

I bought the truck 8 months ago and have had to put coolant in it at about a quart a week or two. No water in oil, no oil in water, and no steam from the exhaust. So far. Now with this its about a quart every day or two.

Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

Well, you can not buy just that hose. You either have to buy the horizontal egr cooler or the hose and tube assembly that goes clear to the water pump. Hose assembly from Ford is $149 before tax. Still cheaper than an EGR cooler. Took 3 hours to get the old one out and the new one in and still have to finish tightening everything up and put the wheel well back in and fender flares back on.
