I have a loose hose coming from coolant tank not sure where its connect to...radiator not getting any antifreeze. do you know where it should go?

If there is no hose going from the radiator to the Fill/Over Fill bottle it connects to the system at a small nipple at the radiator Cap. If that nipple is missing you have a problem because to my knowledge there is no repair for this, you would end up replacing the radiator to get one. This all assumes the Radiator cap is on top of the Radiator itself. I'm not sure if Chevy used a different style where the Radiator cap was actually located at a point some where on one of the lines going to the heater core, Plymouth did this on some models.

Where do the heater hoses connect under the hood?

one will connecdt to the water pump and the bottom of the radiator. The other will connect the thermostat and the top of the radiator. The small third hose is just an overflow line. It usually connects to a nipple by the cap on the radiator.

2001 Ford Windstar is leaking antifreeze

Could be water pump, radiator, freeze plugs, hoses, ect. try and isolate the area by putting a piece of card board down on the ground and line up what is above it. Garages use a pressure tester on the cooling system to see where the leak is. I would guess water pump,or small bypass hose
