Replace hose. It probably goes to the heater core which runs your heater.

Laura, it sould like a valiant effort so far.
Have you burped the system?
There could be a big air bubble in the heater core that will not allow any anti-freeze to flow through.
Never try to pick a car up over the shoulder and attempt to burp it. :) Instead take a 10MM socket on a long extension ratchet and do this: Open the hood and stand right in the middle in front of the engine. Look in and downward to about the first arm of the injector plenum. That's the big, flat black piece of plastic on the engine with six arms sticking out to the left and right side on top of your engine. Look carefully downward and look for a little nipple sticking out just to the right of center on the top-front on that area. As a guide, follow the top hose from the radiator to the aluminum manifold. Look carefully and you can see it looking back at you. Stick the 10MM socket onto it and turn it COUNTER CLOCKWISE to break it loose. Once loose, either air, or anti-freeze or air AND anti-freeze will come out. To avoid a mess plug in a 1/4" clear hose to it and stick the hose into a bucket. Start the car and watch the air and liquid come out. When it runs clear without any air, give the hose a light twist CLOCKWISE to close it up. Tighten with a wrench. In this process make sure you don't get burned from the anti-freeze or make a big mess on the driveway. Dispose of the used Anti-Freeze properly. and GO!

Floor board on passenger side wet after running a/c unit 2005 ford taurus

Could be the drain tube is partially clogged. It is usually located on the fire-wall or down towards the floor pan under the car. It is usually close to where the A/C lines go thru the fire-wall. About 1/2 inch diameter sticking straight out but may have a 90 degree elbow pointing down.
Also, its been extra hot and humid all over and moisture could be freezing inside the unit when on MAX A/C, then suddenly melting when switched to normal. This opens the outside air door and allows warm/hot air into the unit instead of recirculating the cold air inside the car. The drain may not be able to handle a large, sudden quantity of water.
Perform a "driveway" test. Open the hood, start engine and run the A/C on normal with the windows or doors open. Locate the drain tube by looking for water dripping. Once located twist 2 or 3 pipe cleaners together and verify the tube is clean. Then close the doors/windows and switch to MAX A/C. Check for water dripping. If it stops dripping, water is freezing inside and now you know why!

Anti-Freeze is leaking out near the front end of my car, is it my freeze plugs because my work pump is located on the fire wall?

The pump on the firewall is for windshield washer.
You don't say how bad the leak is, but it could be the water pump, radiator, or something as simple as a loose hose clamp.

My car is leaking anti freeze from back of engine, whats the problem

Check the heater hoses, if it's a 2.4 the hoses run from the left side (drivers side) engine to the fire wall, there are 4 hoses linked together, that's where I would start.

The front passenger floor gets sopping wet after I drive and turn off the truck after having had the a/c running. It only does this if I had the a/c running. What's going on? 2003 Dodge Dakota 6 cyl. Aoto...

That sounds like the AC condensation drain tube/hose is plugged up.

The AC evaporator/core condensation drain tube is located on the passenger side of the fire-wall towards the bottom of the fire-wall, (it resembles a heater hose that is coming off from the fire-wall and it connects to nothing, and it is just to drain the AC condensation) and it is easily viewed from under the vehicle. Use long pipe cleaners folded in half to clean out the AC drain, and be very careful that the AC evaporator/core, or the heater core is not damaged from using any hard or sharp objects to clean out the AC drain.

Trying to locate the a/c drain hose

The AC condensation drain tube is located on the passenger side fire-wall towards the bottom, and it should easily be viewed from underneath of the vehicle, and it resembles a hose protruding out from the fire-wall.

Pontiac sunbird 1993 2.0l that has a anti freeze leak from the hose at the bottom of the engine ,the one closest to the fire wall it is on the right side

This could be from the hose that goes from your engine to your heater. I don't know the layout of the sunbird but if you are sure that it is antifreeze that's what it should be. You'll need to get another hose and replace the bad one. Good luck!
