Why do I have antifreeze coming from the air cleaner.I took the air cleaner out and found antifreeze coming from the 4 inch hose from the engine? Any help would be great, thanks dan.

You have a leak in the intake manifold and possibly the head. You need to replace these quickly as antifreeze will get into engine through intake and get into oil which will damage engine.
You could do a compression check to test the head gasket.
