And going into the "those I really rather not replace unless it's actually broken category" is checking the AC compressor and Power Steering pump.
I just recently replaced belt, tensioner, and all the pulleys when I did my OFH gasket along with aluminum Mickey Mouse fitting haha

Today I took the fan out to check, and a pin hole leak has developed into something much larger. Good thing I decided to check, it appears to be coming from the driver side near the transmission cooler inlet.
Sucks. At least you're ahead of it. Good luck.
