I have been searching and tracking it down. Thank you to everyone that posted sugestions on privious threads. It led me to this. I pulled the compressor off from under the car. The bracket is removed for a better view. My question, is this a cracked block? 20160106_145939.jpg

I am guessing the hex bolt at the top is the coolant line to the turbo. Make sure it is not leaking at the back and dripping down the block. It looks like the coolant is dripping from that bolt hole but I would try a pressure tester to be certain. I have not seen a 1.8T block crack, but if it was filled with water, anything is possible.

Above the banjo, I think I see a crack. I circled it. When I ran a finger on the backside of the banjo, it was dry.
