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.
Do you

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

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.
