[urq] Disappearing Coolant

I've found a mystery leak at the turbo coolant return line before when a hose clamp loosened up. It goes into the block below the exhaust manifold and is best accessed from below. Mine wouldn't leak unless the car was on the road to jiggle it around so when I looked at it on jackstands nothing happened. I have to make it move by poking at it with a stick and sure enough it started to drip right away.
