Sounds like it is the infamous 3.0 leak. It's the gasket on the cover behind the water pump that leaks. You need to remove the entire front cover to reseal it. Big job, expensive if you go to the stealership. If it's just a small slow leak, let it go. I've had mine for over 4 years now. It leaks a bit when the engine is shut down after running but not all the time. I've heard a few guys that have got it repaired at the stealership cost them in the area of $1200-$1400.
Only way I traced mine was I seen the coolant stains from where it comes down the front of the block.
