You should have two hoses coming through the firewall, These route to your heater core and is what gives heat and defrost,one hose flows in and the other flows out. The simple solution is the the replace the hose and clamp.

Hope this helps

Short hose leaking coolant/water in engine at firewall

The only coolant hoses i know of that would be anywhere near there would be ran to your heater core. Try looking for a place to reconnect the hose to. The heater uses your coolant to heat your vehicle & it sounds like the hose came off.

Coolant leak at firewall (outside) on 1991 4.9 F150. Comes out at the bottom of the housing mounted to the firewall.

If hoses seem Ok and the clap is tight it may be the Heater Core has sprung a leak, although is leaking outside maybe the line where the hose attaches has a leak.

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!

2000 Impala leaks coolant out hose in firewall

It sounds like you're looking at the heater core water lines. These connect to the heater core supply and return inlet and outlet pipes to bring hot coolant into the cabin for heat and windshield deicing.

The heater core is a mini radiator and operates on the exact same principles as the radiator does. The heater core is located behind the dash board on the passenger side. Look for a wet spot of antifreeze on the passenger side floor area - close to the firewall for an indication of a leaky heater core. If it is leaking, it will likely need to be replaced. This can be a pricey repair.

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.

I have a l shaped house on my firewall as soon as i poor coolant in the overflow tank it runs out of this house

A hose on the firewall is usually a connection to the heater core behind the firewall (which provides cabin heat when the heater is on). If the hose is leaking, it's a simple and inexpensive procedure to replace it. If the leak is coming from BEHIND the firewall, the heater core probably has a leak and should be replaced.

Coolant leaking out

Are you sure it's coolant and not just water? If it's coolant, then you have a bad heater core. Are you sure it's coming from the weep drain, "drain on firewall." Are you sure there's not a leaky hose elsewhere?
