like i said before, but you then said pipe under the manifold, if it is running down the fire wall, and not before you changed the hose, you have either cracked the inlet to the heater core, or crused it when removing the old hose.

pull the 2 hoses off from the fire wall and join them together in a loop, don't connect to the heater core, refill and see if leak is still there.

if it does not leak it means your heater core is rooted. heater core is a little radiator up under your dash which the fan blows air through to give you warm air in the car. btw you will not have a heater after this experiment. just letting you know

i found the problem but dont know how to fix it. there is a little plastic thing which comes out of the fire wall which i think is broken. what is it attach to and how do i fix it?
if i turn on the fan inside the car even if i turn it to hot or cold it will leak but it i turn the fan off coolant stops leaking..
picture below is of the plastic where the leak is coming out of..

well when i turn on the fan, coolant keeps on driping out of it. i bypassed the heater raditor so that it doesnt keep on driping even if the car is off. it only drips when i turn on the fans now.
