    Hey Paul,
    There's a few coolant hoses on the back of the engine, mostly for the turbo. Can you pinpoint exactly where the leak is coming from?

    It can be difficult to tell where it might be coming from, even when looking at it. My guess, without looking at it is that the coolant pipe that attaches to the back of the cylinder hear (near #1 cylinder.) is leaking.
