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.

Hello recco.
When coolant appears inside the car you have a leaking heater core.
Unless you are a really handy guy it is best left for an experienced mechanic.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Leak between engine and firewall

overheat = high chance for blown gaskets.
May be intake or head gasket, or worse, a cracked head or engine block.

Dry it all, fill it, start it, get a friend on the other side and start looking for the source of the leak.

Coolant leak 1994 voyager 3.3

Could be a freeze plug on the engine block. If you have a block heater installed in one of the freeze plug holes, check it for getting too loose and leaking. Pretty common problem with a block heater that's been in there a long time.

1996 toyota corolla dx coolant spraying from back of engine

Hi. A big possibility is that you have a bad water pump hose. There is a short section of hose, maybe 3- 4" long that connects between the water pump and the block, attached with clamps on both ends. You can't hardly see the hose without raising the vehicle and crawling under it. It is located on the lower end of the block between the engine and firewall on the passenger side, rather difficult to get to. If it develops a leak, it could certainly spray onto the firewall. Good luck!

01 durango leakiing coolant nea trans and inside of vehicle

Leaking inside sounds like the heater core. If the core is broke right where the heater hoses connect, it might be losing coolant down both sides of firewall, inside and outside. Otherwise, look for a leak at the intake manifold. That might run down back of engine near the transmission, as you indicated.
Good luck.

How do I find a coolant leak in my 2001 Dodge Intrepid 3.2L? It does not appear to be the hoses, but I notice the passenger side of the radiator is wet. Noticed puddle of coolant under passenger side of...

HI, The easiest way to find a cooling system leak to preform a pressure test. This test requires the use of some special equipment so I will just give you some common areas of these engines that leak. 1. check the upper radiator hose at the radiator. the plastic tank cracks sometimes. 2. check around the thermostat housing. 3. The worse for last there is a coolant passage tube that runs under the intake manifold almost impossible to see without taking things apart. but when it leaks the coolant seems to show up n the floor on the passenger side back by the firewall. I hope these help and you can locate the problem. Be careful when looking for these problems when the engine is hot you can get burnt. Good luck

I have a leak in the back of the engine. looks like a pipe coming from the firewall on the passenger side, about halfway down into the engine. is this a freeze plug or a heating issue?

That sounds just like the condensation drain tube for the AC system, and if it is cool clear water coming out of it when the AC is operating instead of hot coolant, then it would be a normal condition and it is doing exactly what it is designed to do.

Also, if it was a coolant leak you would be low on coolant, and the engine would be getting hot.
