Hey Everyone I'm back again with an issue with my truck. So I have a radiator leak and I'm going to replace it today my question though...
There's a opening coming out of my heat plate on the passenger side and water is coming out of it. I don't know what it's called it's just a black little nubby pipe opening isn't connected to anything. I even shot a picture.
Thanks Yall!

That's the condensate drain for your air conditioning evaporator. If this line gets plugged, the condensate (water) will eventually spill out of the A/C box into the cabin and soak your carpet.

By the way, when you replace your radiator, four bolts and five minutes will remove your front bumper and save you a bunch of frustration, especially getting at the small bolts at the bottom of the a/c condenser.

Yes you did. A spray bottle would have had it figured out in no time.
Simple things first.
I and all here thank you for the follow up as that is an integral teaching tool for all who peruse the forum.
In addition, if you got tools to remove your fan, all and any work on the innards front of that vehicle would become simpler.
