Thumbs down Fluid Leak

well, since we're experiencing some extremely low temps here in michigan, i decided to check the gf'* bonnie over to make sure fluids were ok. Everything was fine except i noticed that there was a ton of gunk built up by the radiator. it seems that one of the pipes entering the radiator is leaking and i'm not exactly sure which fluid it is or where the fluid is exactly the fluid is coming from. are there any lines that rot out faster than others? anybody have a picture or diagram of the radiator to explain which line is which? i'll take a picture next time she'* over

Is this a hard line? Or a rubber one?
