Aside from disconnecting your heater hoses, the only fix is to replace the "heater core". The "heat" function of your climate control system relies on heated engine coolant to work. The small elbow that you describe, is most likely the condensate drain. The "heater core" and the "evaporator core(for the a/c)", are located beneath the dash assembly in an enclosed housing. The "heater core" should be serviceable without removing the complete housing as with some vehicles. I hope this helps

I would start by replacing that section of hose. Depending on how much it's leaking it could be the source of the engine overheating as well. After it replaced make sure coolant level is where it's supposed to be. Hope this helps

The coolant leaks right back out from a rubber elbow hose on firewall by the heater core. should it be conected somewhere or have a clamp?


if that elbow is very low on the firewall it is a condensation drain for A/C if coolant pours out of there I believe your heater core may be leaking. Do you smell coolant in the cabin? feel free to reply, I should be around most of the day...MK

Air conditioning drain stopped up with debris (leaves,pine straw,sticks). Small tube sticking out from firewall with rubber elbow pointing down behind engine, passenger side. If elbow missing air will cause water to back up into vehicle. Another possibility, if your coolant is low heater core leaking.

Age of vehicle determines that you get a replacement hose and clips first. Drain down the Coolant into a container, replace the hose, and refill, remembering you are going to loose coolant by spillage on the drain down.

There is only one way the steam from the radiator could be coming in to the cab of the vehicle. That would be from the heater core, or the lines going to the heater core. If there is coolant/water leaking on that elbow on the firewall, it could either be that line that is leaking, or it could be leaking from the core and just dripping down to the elbow.

Water leak overflow hose......


The hose you are referring to is the drain from the heater box...gets rid of condensation from the a.c. don't connect it to anything. But, If any antifreeze (not plain water) is coming out of there, then you likely have a heater core leak. That said, if the engine is not running hot and you aren't loosing antifreeze, the level sensor in the tank is bad.

A rubber elbow coming out of the firewall is probably the a/c evaporator drain. However, the heater core could be leaking and entering the evaporator case and coming out of that drain. Are you sure coolant is coming out of that elbow and not plain water?

2000 chevy cavalier having coolant leak. Found a small rubber elbow hose about 2 and a half inches comming out of the firewall leaking coolant while engine is running and dripping while engine has stopped...


That hose is the drain hose for the air conditioner evaporator. If it is leaking coolant, there's a good chance that your heater core is leaking, as it is in the same 'box' that the air conditioner evaporator is in. You'll need to replace the heater core.
