1999 Ford Taurus Question: Heater core?

Large amounts of water is leaking from the evaporator drain hose located under the hood on the firewall. How do you repair this? -
Answer 1
Large amounts of water -- like quarts or gallons? Is it coolant or water? -
Comment 1
What I mean by lots of water is all the coolant will be gone out of the radiator and the engine and the engine will be running hot and then I fill it back up with water and it all leaks out again within one day. -
Comment 2
OK. What makes you think it is an evaporator drain hose? I'm thinking you may have a heater hose leaking, perhaps one to the heater core. If this is the case, it's an easy fix - replace the hose. The evaporator does not have a drain hose, there is merely a drain hole underneath the vehicle at the bottom of the evaporator box. -

Because that's what it says it is in the repair manual. There is a picture that shows it but it's not really a hose though. It has an opening that is under the hood on the firewall. It looks like just the evaporator drain. -
