hard to tell bc it came out so fast but left side of the motor (opposite side the turbo is on) kinda where the tranny meets the motor but a bit higher up

ok sounds like one of 3 things may happen, you have either lost a headgasket, a freeze plug has came out, or your loosing the rear main seal... no heater cores in the particular spot on our beast, can you get me a picture of it?
