Hi!!\015\012\015\012If your blend door actuator (HOT - COLD) control works, you probably have a clog in the heater core. Both hoses should be almost at the same temperature, it only takes coolant a few seconds to go thru the Heater core. Remo ... 2001 Ford Explorer Sport

Ruptured/cracked heater core hot water tube (metal tube) is leaking very badly. I need a workaround/fix. The heater core blew several years ago and I bypassed it by connecting the heater core inlet hose to the heater core outlet hose... but now the heater core hot water inlet TUBE (metal) has ruptured. I'm not sure what type of connection exists near the water pump going into that tube (grateful if someone knows and can tell me)... but am hoping that perhaps I can just disconnect the hot wat

Heater-coolant hoses There are 3 metal heater pipes coming out of the firewall on my son's 92 Cavalier (air-conditioned) - the heater outlet, heater inlet and another one further over on the passenger side. This "other one" has no rubber hose connected to it (it's just open) and coolant runs out of it. It obviously needs to be connected to somewhere else, but neither I nor our mechanic can figure out what it's supposed to connect to. Have you any ideas on this? It's kind of frustrating. Thank yo

Just had cooling system flushed and new anti freeze installed. Very cold day all windows frosted up and no heat from AC system. In hose is warm out hose cold. Presumably heater core got plugged with crud from flushing. is it possible to blow air through the core by disconnecting the inlet and outlet hoses and using compresses air or is necessary to change the core and how can that be done?


Yes, you could do that, but it's not recommended the core might not resist the pressure. Flush it again, this time add more solution in the coolant and make sure the valve to the core is opened during the procedure.\012\012\012If you really ha ... Mercury Marquis
