Odd coolant leak / Starter oil leak??

2004 3.0 edge 2wd



So first of all, I have coolant running down the oil pan on the passenger side, and dripping off the drain plug. I know its coolant because I have dye in it. I also smell burning coolant when the truck is hot. Nothing is leaking around the top of the engine, nor is the water pump / gasket leaking. All I can think of is maybe the lower intake at the back of the engine. But I can't seem to get a good view of it. Anyone else had this problem?

Also, I noticed some kind of oil (not engine oil, its a dark gray color) leaking out of a hole on the bottom of the starter. What is heck is this?
