Answers :

Remove glove box to get better access. It takes a few minutes to unhook the vent tubes and heater mechanisms, but you will finally get to the point of opening the black plastic housing. \015\012
\015\012There you will see the core. Remove the one bracket that is still holding the core and the two hoses from the engine side of the firewall. A little maneuvering and the core should come free. \015\012
\015\012Note: A faulty thermostat can  cause  overpressure and apparently the heater core gives up first. \015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012

Ten months ago the local Ford dealer replaced the heater core and temp blend door on my '98 Expedition. The heater core failed again and I was told that due to oxidation I will basically continue to have this problem. The system was flushed when I had the first core replaced. Does this failure make sense? Is there something else that should have been done the first time the heater core was replaced?


There may be a corrosive in the system. Flushing the system should be done at least every 2 years. Your vehicle is now 12 years old, but I have not seen a heater core go bad in 10 months, it may have been defective, and should have some type of warra ... 1998 Ford Expedition
