its pouring out of a valve located directly left and up of the exhaust manifold, the car has a fan with a manual switch on it, and the coolant only comes out when the fan is running. not sure what it is but through research, it could possibly be a heater core problem, input would be greatly appreciated

    Does the car have heat inside the cabin? If so, then it might be the junction where a cooling hose connects onto the heater core where it passes through the firewall.

    it was the heater core. i had to completely remove it, thanks to the haynes manual, it was a cinch. now i have to buy the replacement, how long can i run the 2 hose together without causing a terrible amount of damage?

    Not sure if this will help there is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online
