Coolant leak on drivers side back of motor

What would make it leak on the back of the motor just drivers side small amount. Head gaskets were replaced 25,000 ago. no bubbling in tank, has pressure at cap after it sits for 2 or 3 days. Really don't wanna take it to the shop for somethin I may be able to fix?

if you have pressure in tank.....a hose or external leak will not do it. Could be as simple as a bad surge tank cap for that, not venting

First guess would be turbo hose, second would be outlet pipe gasket to thermostat housing.
