My 2000 impala is blowing out a lot of coolant from this little L-shaped pipe, right under my starter I think, how do I fix it. Please help I think its my starter that's just above it.

No starter there. You will need to remove stuff to get to it. How long did you have car before this happened?

Well it sat in the garage for almost 9mo, with a broken trans. Now its running again and now the thing is spitting coolant.

Common issue with GM it's part of belt tensioner assembly some genius designed instead of a hose.. there are 2 pipes that come out of block when you remove tensioner. 1 on each end. so change them both. auto store has them. found a video here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QldgVWRJQJY
other vids there also.
