Question about 1994 Pontiac Grand Am
I have a 98 Grand Am that the coolant level light keeps coming on. When I fill the surge tank it will go off for a few seconds after I start the car. but then come right back on. The only place I can see any coolant coming out is from what I think is the overflow, but dont really know. It looks like a little rubber elbow coming out of the firewall pointed down. When I turn the car off the fluid coming out of the elbow is very evident. I dont see any other place that is really leaking any fluid. I would think its the intake manifold except for whats coming out of the rubber elbow.
IF THERE IS ENOUGH HOSE, YOU MAY BE ABLE TO CUT THE END OFF THE RUBBER ELBOW AND CLAMP IT BACK IN PLACE. OR PERHAPS THE FITTING ON THE OVERFLOW TANK MAY BE LEAKING. YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO FILL THE OVERFLOW WHILE THE VEHICLE IS RUNNING. PLEASE KEEP ME INFORMED. GOOD LUCK. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA. AND THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR AN HONEST RATING.

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?

SOURCE: 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.
