I also need an answer to this question, but my floorboard does not get wet. Is it clogged or is it a bad heater core? It is most likely a bad heater-core if it is antifreeze.

Why do you smell antifreeze in the cab of your Subaru?

Antifreeze is used to heat the cab of your vehicle. When you turn on your heat in your cab, it opens up a valve that allows the hot antifreeze to flow from the radiator into the heater core. If there is a leak in the rubber tubes that flow into the heater core, or if the heatercore is damaged, you will smell the antifreeze in the cab of the vehicle. You may need new hoses to the heater core and/or a new heater core.

You accidentally poured a small amount of oil in your antifreeze reservoir what should you do?

Take off the reservoir & flush it out with hot water to get the oil out. If you drive it it can go through the cooling system and it may distort rubber seals etc. If it's a very minor amount it might not be an issue but flush it to be safe.

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!

Why would coolant be draining from a rubber elbow through the fire wall?

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
