Welcome to Just Answer Mechanical Support!

I am AutoExpert20 and I will be Investigating and Supporting your question today.
I understand it can be really frustrating when your auto is not working an expected but don't worry as I am here to help!
I may need further information, however, if required I will let you know!

Sorry to hear your having issues with your vehicle I will try to assist you.

I am Looking at the information you have provided

It is possibly the EGR cooling pipe that runs to the EGR cooler there is 2 of them 1 on each side I would check them first and also check the heater core pipes if you trace them back to the engine you should be able to find the leak they are both hard to see as there at the rear of the engine but if you use a small mirror it helps.

Read something about a gasket behind the block off plate on the bell housing adapter....possibility??
I hate this truck. Paid 35k for it 4 years ago and spent just as much keeping it running since then.

It is possible but not as common as the EGR and if it is on the drivers rear side it can be the turbo cooler pipe.

There's coolant everywhere since I was driving at the time but it looks like more on the passenger side. Definitely back/ bottom of the motor I think tho.

Wait till it is cool the top of the coolant with water put the cap on and run the vehicle until it is warm then check and look around the back of the engine until you see the leak if it does not leak when running stationary you  will need to get a cooling pressure test done.

Ok sounds good. I'll give it a shot.
