Default Leaking coolant from this?

I have a PT Cruiser 2005, no overheating problem but i do smell coolant in the car and in the engine comparment, the smell is not sweet as other people have described. Can anyone identify from the image what this is that is leaking?

Not sure about the leaking question but on your second picture...



Are you asking what the line is for or what the metal bracket is for?

The line is the fuel line and the bracket is to hold that fuel line away from the A/C line because in the early PT's, the fuel line rubbed against the other line and actually caused the fuel to leak causing engine compartment fires.

On the other question, I found this so hopefully it will answer your leak question....

Thanks for the quick reply, so it is a fuel leak.
Is that a fuel filter at the end of the line?
Thanks again

That's not the end of the line, it's just a junction in the fuel line between the fuel tank and the injectors. Might be a small fuel filter but the main fuel filter is inside the fuel tank itself.
