Small puddle of antifreeze under passenger side??

I noticed a small puddle of antifreeze on the ground under the passenger side today. I tried to find where its coming from but could not see any obvious place. The overflow tank is not full or overflowing....same level it has always been.

I always run my blackmaxx on MILD and its set to defuel until cold coolant level is 180.

Is this a headgasket issue?

My EGR and cooler are deleted...I checked the plugs that were in the delete kit and they are not leaking.

check the coolant hose in the back side of the turbo, it is somewhat prone to leaking.

Check the hose that comes off the motor that used to go to the egr cooler. If its not tight it will leak and drip down your block, mine did it. Notice in the pic where it looks like its coming from, its actually coming from that hose. I ended up having to put another hose clamp on it along with that one to keep it from leaking.

are you sure it's antifreeze and not just condensation off the AC condensor? When the temp drops a bit, and you are using the defrost, there will be a fair bit of water on the ground

Found it.....it was impossible to see where it was coming from while underneath the truck. But I was checking around the water pump because I know that was a problem on 07 and 08s, and I saw a drip out of the corner of my eye..........it was leaking where the overflow tube connects under the radiator cap. It would drip down and hit the lower rad hose then run off that to the ground.

I put a hose clamp on it and problem solved. Sometimes its the simple things and I never thought to check that hose

Well I thought I had found it but the past week I still had a coolant puddle on the passenger side so I took it to the dealer to get them to replace the water pump under warranty and they did. No more leaks.
