Coolant water dripping from transmission. No repair yet.
Coolant leak from passage seals-dripping on EGR valve, causing malfunctioning. Need to replace coolant passage and gaskets and EGR valve to remedy.

No solution yet.... just dried coolant that weeps very slowly from the EGR valve area... the weeping is so slow that the coolant dries before it runs off the block.
