Hose hanging from front of car

I have a 1992 Ford Taurus. I was traveling today and stopped to get some gas and the gas station had a very steep driveway and i bottomed out my car going like less then 10 mph. when i got out to pump gas i noticed a hose like thing hanging down and greenish/yellowish fluid was leaking from the car which i figured was the antifreeze. i was told it could be the A/C connection or radiator.any suggestions?

It's likely the lower coolant hose - the greenish yellow fluid is coolant. When you bottomed out, you either separated or tore the lower coolant hose, or you cracked the radiator. Either way, you need to fix it before you continue driving the car.

Why won't my 1992 Ford Econoline van start


I suspect the fuel pump has stopped working, check the fuel pressure or listen to the noise it makes by taking off the gas cap and listening for a humming noise when the key is turned on, this will stop after a few seconds.

Pcv


Under the wiring harness, which is under the fuel rail, which is under the upper intake manifold.
From the front of the car and starting at the throttle body, locate a large rubber hose coming out the bottom of the throttle body, this hose comes straight down, then bends towards the front of the car. A plastic pipe connects to this rubber hose and the plastic pipe continues forward, then bends to the passenger side and dives under the wiring harness a few inches and connects to a 2" long rubber hose which is then connected to the PCV.
You can see it actually. Locate the big coolant hose that is just above where the plastic pipe dives under the wiring harness, if you shine a light over the top of this hose and at a fairlt steep angle allowing you to see under the harness, you can make out the PCV.

The hose itself is easy to change - it just has a clamp at each end that holds it in place and keeps it sealed. You'd have to drain some of the fluid (most probably, since it's the lower hose), and then refill the radiator, burp it, and top it off. Not terribly hard to do at all.
