Sounds like what is normally called a bypass hose. It however is normally made of rubber, like the radiator/heater hoses are made of. If it runs from the water pump to the intake manifold, then a bypass hose would be it, regardless of its composition.

The condensate drain line normally runs thru the engine compartment firewall on the passenger's side. about halfway down. Look for a rubber hose protruding out through a rubber grommet. The "water" you are getting could be from one of three sources:
A/C condensate if the drain line is clogged.
Engine coolant (same reason)
Water leak from door seal or windshield gasket.
Feel and smell the liquid. If it smells sweet or has an oily feel, it may be engine coolant. If it is, you most likely have a heater core that is leaking. Hopefully that is not the case. Otherwise, clearing the clog from the drain line should help solve the issue.
need to pour water into it, crawl underneath and see where it is coming out and then change that part. If no water comes out when you do this, start it up, crawl under, and see if it is leaking with it running.
The push pins get rotated a 1/4 turn to lock or unlock them. Make sure it is unlocked and then pull up on the black plastic push pin. This will make sure it is unlocked. Repeat for the remaining 3 push pins. If you look at the bottom the little clear/white plastic pieces at the bottom should not have a black piece of plastic piece pushed down and showing all the way. You can then take the cooler and line up all the holes with the pushpins but dont push down on them yet. Push down on the top of the cooler to put the white plastic pieces through the holes. Then rotate the black top push pins to the locked position and push down on the locking push pin.
the red light flashing on the temp gauge means that there is no coolant in the expansion tank.
look behind the battery (slightly above) and you will see a bottle.
With the engine cold open the cap on the bottle slowly and release the pressure inside.
Check to make sure that the coolant inside the tank is between the min and max line.
if coolant isnt there you need to fill it with a mixture of water and coolant(coolant purchased at any garage) as directed on the bottle.
Keep an eye on the level of coolant in the bottle for a few days if it falls below min or dissapears it could indicate a leak.
I had a small leak in my 98 2.3 ghia x galaxy and fixed it by buying a bottle of rad weld, poured the liquid rad weld into the coolant bottle, and it worked a treat plus it stops the inside of the radiator rusting and rotting away.
The engine is leaking cooant some where and it is a big leak.
Could be from a cracked radiator or heating hose, or a leaky radiator, or radiator cap or into the oil sump, this will cause the oil to change to a milky color. It could also leak coolant into the combustion chamber pass a faulty head gasket.
Fill the radiator and put the car in park and run the engine until it reaches running tempurature, open the bonnet and look around the engine and under the car to see where the coolant is leaking. Also have a look at the exhaust tail pipe and the oil dip stick for color changes to the oil.
Raise and safely support the vehicle. Remove the right inner splash shield.
Remove the accessory drive belts and power steering pump.
Drain the cooling system into a suitable container.
Securely support the engine from the bottom, then remove the right engine mount.
Remove the power steering pump bracket bolts, then set the pump
and bracket assembly aside, but the power steering lines do not need to
Remove the right engine mount bracket.
Remove the timing belt tensioner and timing belt
Remove the camshaft sprocket(s) and inner timing belt cover
Unfasten the water pump-to-engine attaching screws, then remove the water pump from the engine.
Remove and discard the water pump O-ring, and thoroughly clean the mating surfaces.
Install a new O-ring gasket in the water pump O-ring groove. Hold
the O-ring in place with a few small dabs of suitable silicone sealant.
Before proceeding, make sure the O-ring gasket is properly seated
in the water pump groove before tightening the screws. A improperly
installed O-ring could cause a coolant leak.
Position the water pump to the block and install the retainers.
Tighten the retainers to 9 ft. lbs. (12 Nm). Use a pressure tester to
pressurize the cooling system to 15 psi and check the water pump shaft
seal and O-ring for leaks.
Rotate the pump by hand to check for freedom of movement.
Install the inner timing belt cover, timing belt and tensioner.
Install the right engine mount bracket and engine mount.
Refill the cooling system with the proper type and amount of coolant.
Install the power steering pump and accessory drive belts.
Connect the negative battery cable.
Use a DRB or equivalent scan tool to perform the camshaft and crankshaft timing relearn procedure, as follows:
Connect the scan tool to the Data Link Connector (located under the instrument panel, near the steering column).
Turn the ignition switch
, and access the miscellaneous screen.
Select the re-learn cam/crank option, then follow the instructions on the scan tool screen.

That's your heatsink, and it's very dangerous for the computer to run for long without it... Laying the computer on its side does not harm it, but running it without properly installed cooling aides can be.
I suggest that you contact the manufacturer. Since your computer is less than a year old, hardware issues like this should be covered.. Just don't listen to them when they say reinstalling your OS can fix it, hah hah.
