2.3L 2001 Coolant lines?

I borrowed my nieces Ranger to go the lumber yard. I got a couple miles and saw steam and discovered a puddle when I stopped. There is a leak somewhere on drivers side of mtr. There is a hose coming back from pump(which has two outlets) and going into a tee. One branch from tee goes behind engine and to right side of mtr. I guess. Can't see. At the tee its going ? and leak is somewhere up there. I can't find a diagram online anywhere.
I saw on one autoparts site a "bypass hose" this I'm guessing is the hose that isn't broke. Don't see anything else or any idea what tee is branching into.
Niece is traveling nurse in Texas now and so here I am trying to fix her truck. Is there somewhere online that would have some help?
I've found that 2001 has coolant to the EGR valve which is behind mtr. I suppose this is going there.

We took truck to local fixit shop. Guy says it takes a "special hose" and its $200. Then says has to take transmission out to fit it and it will be $600 total. Its not mine but I'm voting to put it in my drive and forget the fancy "special hose" and ****** rig it. I think the special hose is a molded piece that branches.

I would recommend you go to a junk yard. I highly doubt you need to pull the transmission.
