    Just noticed a clamp was missing on the turbo manifold area of a cummins engine.. is it normal for it to be leaking coolant from here?

    You need to really wash that all off scrub it off and then check again after some time or start it and see if it’s leaking.

    “is this normal”
    When have trucks ever been sold with a normal coolant leak hahaha.

    I'd bet its leaking from the heater hoses at the back of the head and dripping down on to the egr cooler.

    Definitely looks like its leaking from above.

    I'm not 100% certain but that looks like a slip joint connection, which would have no clamp.
