This sounds like your a/c drain.It will drain water out with a/c on,if you have coolant coming out of it then yes it is your heater core

Antifreeze leak from rear of engine on pontiac grand prix


Rule out leak from water pump. What engine is it - 3.0 3.8. Could be intake manifold gasket. Have the cooling system pressurized, about 12 lbs. and look for leak, bubbles.
check oil for coolant in oil also. Possible head gasket leak.

I'm losing automatic transmission fluid. Is there any common history to support a theory of leaking transmission cooling lines?


I just checked for technical service bulletins and there is nothing for leaks from tranny or lines. Your vehicle is 15 years old if they havent been replaced yet it is possible it it just time to change them. Check where it goes from metal to rubber on the lines that is most likely where it will be wet. If itis wet there more than likely you'll need new lines

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee fluid leak


That is the area the air conditioner vent drains. There aren't a lot of fluids possible - coolant, power steering fluid and transmission fluid are the only ones that would be in that position unless your windshield washer fluid leaks from the tubing. Brake fluid would be closer to the wheels. If the air conditioner runs at all it removes moisture from the passenger compartment and drains near the passenger side firewall. All the other fluids would hae a definite smell.

There is only one way the steam from the radiator could be coming in to the cab of the vehicle. That would be from the heater core, or the lines going to the heater core. If there is coolant/water leaking on that elbow on the firewall, it could either be that line that is leaking, or it could be leaking from the core and just dripping down to the elbow.

1990 Pontiac Grand Am 2.5 L engine. Leaking Coolant from fire wall below blower unit from a rubber elbow below a Air conditioner line. Coolant tank had hard crystalized coolant in it. Washed out...


That drain line is for the box that holds the air conditioner evaporator and the heater coil. It seems that your heater coil has sprung a leak and the leaked fluid is coming out the drain. You have to replace the heater coil, which on most cars involves removing a lot of the interior equipment, including the dash board on many cars. A job best left for the repair shop unless you're very adventurous and patient. Even then you will have to take it to a shop to have the air conditioning system recharged.

Small Downturn spout on firewall dumps coolant within minutes


Both brain sturgeons are wrong. Your heater core is leaking and the coolant is coming out of the heater box where the condensation from the a/c usually exits.

Check gauges light comes on


Sounds like a CPU problem. your radiator may need a good flushing a s well. i would also check the heater core for any unusual problems like seal break or leakage.
