Chit, that's probably not good to have coolant running from it then. I really appreciate you taking those pictures and figuring out what I was talking about. Hopefully someone will come along who knows what this is and why I have collant leaking there.
No problem man, thats what the forum is for. I posted on another forum about it with the pic, ill let you know what I find out.

Didnt get a PM.

Yep its what we thought it was...

"It's a drain for the condenser/heater core in the core. When the AC is on full blast in the summer, and it's muggy, it will generate condensation. The water needs to go somewhere, so that is the drain for it.

I think it also doubles as a drain in case the core leaks? Not sure on that though.

I don't know if you saw my last post, I think it got put on the last of page one while you were posting this, and yours went to page two. Check your PM's if you haven't already. Thanks again.

Just wanted to extend an offer for the quick help and for getting the pictures, but didn't want everyone else to think the offer was for them too

Some day, when you do something above and beyond what I would expect from a total stranger, and I am sure you will,I'll make you the same offer

This is nice, nowwhenever I have a question people will rush to answer it because they just have to know what the mysterious offer was

the coolant line form your head to heater core id say just by a new 1/2 hose its cheap to buy so fix it and if it still leaks look into something else try to get your hands on a pressure test and watch it come out

That happened to me when my heater core broke. The coolant comes out of the passanger side head, into the heater core that is in the firewall, out of the heater core, and into a return hose that goes toward the back of the driver's side head then threw the center of the motor to the water pump.
