The DRAIN hose coming out of the firewall is the A/C condenser drain line. It is a drain hose and is draining condensation from the A/C coils, which is normal with the A/C on. You may also be seeing a drain line for the window cowl area. Now if you are talking about either the inlet or outlet hoses going to the heater, then you more than likely just need to replace them.
The coolant sounds like it is leaking from the drain hole for the heater core. The drain is usually along the firewall and keeps the coolant from entering the vehicle should the heater core develop a leak.
You probably have a bad heater core. The heater core is installed in a plastic casing and the spout is there in case it starts leaking. This keeps it from leaking into the floor of the car.
If it's leaking from INSIDE the firewall (away from the engine compartment) you probably have a leaking heater control valve or damaged heater core.

The only hose connections at the firewall that contain coolant are the connections at the heater core. You either have a loose clamp or the compression fitting between the steel and metal parts of the hose itself are leaking. If there is coolant leaking out of an drain at the bottom area of the firewall, there's a good chance that it's leaking from the heater core itself, through a drain pipe which is the same drain pipe that removes water condensation from the air conditioning.
Its more than likely your heater core.
The sunroof on a Chevy Cavalier can often be repaired by replacing the outer seal. This prevents rain from leaking into the vehicle and causing additional problems.

If its inside the cab at the firewall, its probably your heater core which is located on the passenger side under the dash. This repair is usually not much fun. If its leaking in the engine compartment near the firewall, its probably a heater hose that is failing. This is an easy repair
If you mean engine coolant is getting into the car, the heater core is leaking coolant causing the coolant level to drop and that causes the engine to over heat.

Leak in heater core.
Bad hose or clamp where the heater core is connected would be the most likely problem.

If coolant is leaking from a car it means that your radiator has a hole in it. If this is not fixed the car will over heat.
You may have a bad head gasket and it may be leaking from that. Why when cold i dont know, but if you are losing coolant it may be the head gasket.
Yes! if you have a cracked head chances are your oil and coolant are mixing together and coolant and or oil is leaking out causing the vehicle to overheat... if you have a cracked head fix it! do not drive the vehicle
chk coolant, chk coolant hose to turbo if it's a turbo. my hose was leaking causing overheating. My 2006 had a clogged heater core causing flow problems. Also the cooling fan is known to fail after 100k miles.
Example sentence - The coolant in my car was leaking out.
If your talking about coolant leaking on the passenger floor then it means your heater core is leaking and needs to be replaced.
It could be the radiator, the hoses, a leaking coolant tank or the water pump.
Sounds like a head gasket. Check for white smoke tailpipe when running.
