RVAE34 is on a distinguished road
I did and couldn't find anything. It's the strangest thing ever. I left it on the lift running and didn't see a drop anywhere. Can't see much without removing that thick aluminum belly pan and when I started to pop the bolts loose, I noticed it was holding the sway bar etc so I just left it. I suppose I will let the local shop I sometimes use have a look since I didn't see anything.

Turns out it was the coolant hose at the back of the motor which feeds to the heads. Being fixed now.

You should change all of the coolant hoses on these 4.6is. Even if the mileage is not high they go soft and deteriorate. If you do one at a time (as the leaks start to show), you'll be chasing leaks for a while.
