Help in Estes Park Co, Engine Coolant loss, Where to take for repair?

On the way back into Estes Park from Boulder, the engine started making noise that kinda sounds like fan blowing/moving a lot of air/heavy humming sound. Only when accelerating. That happened about 10 mins before shutting it down when parking for the evening. Upon doing that, I smelled antifreeze. Looked under the hood, and the passenger side is wet more than the driver. I have looked around some with a flash light. See wetness, nothing obvious for a source. I am not sure if it is making an abnormal noise when in park/idle. I did not want to start it back up with it hot. It does not seem abnormally hot. Hopefully, not enough coolant was lost to destroy the engine. I figure when the sun comes up I will get a better look and crawl under it. From what I can see, hoses seems to be good. So????

Anyone know of a good place to take this thing to in Estes Park? Or Nearby? I have looked a little, and seems most diesel places are back down the mountain.


Thanks

If it's on the passenger side it's the blue or orange hose going to the EGR cooler. If you seen white smoke coming from the tail pipe it would be a cracked in the EGR cooler it's self. Worst of all if it's coming from degas tank there's a good chance the head gaskets are going, Hopefully only need to change the blue hose you can see it in the link. i would take it to the dealer if your unable to do it

Ok, Thanks, Just about to go out and take a look at things. Any repair facilities in Estes Park anyone know of? I just called one place, they won't be able to touch it til Weds... I need this looked at ASAP... I might be able to manage a hose change. This is the first trip I did not bring any tools... Figures!
