the rubber elbow is a drain for the heater and ac box, it should only have clear water coming out of is on a hot day with the a/c cranked up. and antifreeze indicates a bad heater core.

There is a rubber elbow on both ends of the metal pipe that connects to your PCV valve.

chances are that your heater core is leaking and needs to be replaced The coolant is draining from the heater case. This is what houses the heater core and prevents the antifreeze from flooding into the car. That elbow is the drain hose for the heater case, which means your heater core is leaking and needs too be replaced. Good luck. To access and replace the heater core the dash board needs to be removed. Est. shop(not dealer) cost =$500.00 parts and labor

That is the drain from the heater core housing. It will only leak coolant from there if the heater core starts leaking. This is to help prevent coolant from ruining your carpet/interior. You have a bad heater core. Time to replace it. Good luck!

If its the little "elbow" that comes out of the fire wall on the engine side then it means the heatercore is leaking. This is a drain hose for the ac and if the heater core leaks it drains thru this tube

In one of the valve covers there is an elbow with a rubber hose attached. The elbow is the PCV valve.

The heater core is located behind/around the center of the of the firewall . It is around $300 to replace at a shop and not recommended to do on your own unless u have proper equipment and know how. You will know if your heater core is damaged when u pour coolant in and it drains out of a rubber elbow around the left central area of the firewall. DONT NOT DRIVE WITH BROKEN HEATER CORE. You risk severly damanging your engine.

Look on the rubber elbow coming off the throttle body. It's the only sensor that plugs into that elbow.

remove the belt and the housing, the elbow then pulls out, only the rubber seals hold it in

For the Lumina car, it is located on the firewall basically centered behind the engine. It is a little rubber elbow coming out of the firewall. It drains directly from the elbow and the elbow can be removed and unplugged.

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.

are you sure it is coolant? is the elbow located on the firewall? if that's the case then it's not coolant, it's condensation from the AC doing what it is supposed to do.

An elbow joint model can be made from PVC pipes, tape, cable ties, and rubber bands. The PVC pipe will be used to represent the bones, while the rubber bands will act as the tendons. Balloons may be used to represent the bicep and tricep muscles.

That is not idiomatic. The idiom is "elbow grease" which means "exertion" comparing it to a bottled product."You can get that brass to shine if you use more elbow grease." means "Polish harder and the brass will shine."

just right of the exhaust manifold. little black rubber pipe/elbow connects to it.

for me it was a small rubber elbow that connected one of the vacuum hoses. It was a $2.00 part at Checker.

Spray starting fluid around the engine. its probably the pcv elbow beside the exhaust manifold or the pcv end assembly elbow on the bottom of the intake manifold. Mine had both elbows almost in half.

right elbow and left elbow

The question seems a little ambiguous, but if I understand it correctly, no. The evaporator drain is usually just a small tube running through the firewall with a rubber elbow attached to direct accumulated condensation down to the ground. It also prevents air from pushing the condensation back into the box. As to connecting to the heater core, it does not. The heater core is a separate system and, except in some cases, is usually in a separate section of the HVAC box joined only by a flap that opens and closes to regulate air temperature.
