DID they run it on the locater? you can probably take hose to a parts house and they can match up with something. if it has the quick connects you will just have to use hose clamps and do away with those

2002 Expedition heating


have you checked the coolant level? also the hoses after the engine has been running for a while should be more than warm, they should be hot. the in hose should be so hot you can not hold on to it for long.

you may have a plugged heater core, try removing hoses to front and rear units and use a water hose to flush, do this good, start withfront one stick hose on one hose and see what comes out the other end of the core, then which to other end of the core, you may need a small hose about 3ft to slide onto heater core end to then put hose nozzle on the other end of small hose then hit handle to force water through. do this to both cores.

96 grand am overheating no heater hose on lower nipple on fire wall and pouring coolant out that nipple. Smell coolant in car and driverside winsheid fogging up. Did heater core go bad or did I loose a...


at first i just bypass the heater core assem. go from the thermm. housing to the head nipple. if you put your heat setting to hi setting all your coolant will pour out that nipple with no hose. if you drive like that BOOM! engene blows the heater hose assembly replacement for that is $90+tax and thats bs. ireplaced mine with 2 tees it works great! it runs cooler than it ever has and the heater works when you need it. that assembley has a thermal crossover valve in it and i find no reason for it other than the heater may work a couple min. sooner.And or the coolant that ain't worth $90bucks+tax to me.i can wait a couple min, longer for the heater to work i used the tees to maintain water flow through the head nipple back to the rad,when heater is not in use. incase that was the purpous of the thermal valve crossover. i could find no one who could tell me its intened purpous at any parts store or even the GM dealership.

I have the 2001 GC ES with dual automatic climate control. The heat works in the front, but blows ice cold in the back, at all speeds, no matter how long vehicle has been moving. I'm starting to wonder if...


If you have heat in the front the engine cooling system is operating normally (waterpump ok) If the rear hoses were rusted out you would have front issues too due to collant loss. I sounds like either the rear controller has a problem with the temperature door actuator or an electrical problem going to the actuator. They sometimes have a heater valve which shuts off coolant flow to the rear heater core. It is located in the engine, where the rear hoses split to the rear. They are usually vacuum operated, possibly the valve or vacuum issue, check there. Feel the rear hoses under the van with the rear heat on. One should be hot and the other warm (this would indicate the heater core and valve are functioning). If the rear fan works the fuse is ok for the controller.

Need to replace a front heat blower resistor on 2002 mdx, where is located???


moz-screenshot.pngHere's an excerpt from the 2002 Acura MDX 4WD 6cyl Repair guide for replacing what the reference manual calls the "control assembly" - its located under the console rear trim and may (or may not)
contain the blower resistor - my manual doesn't say - but this is the closest thing I could find for you. Every other blower resistor I've had to find was located close to the heater controls - and this
car seems to be no exception -- its heater controls are located in the console between the seats, rather than in the dash (as in Acura 2003-06 MDX models).

You may want to call your friendly Acura dealership ad speak to the parts department, to make sure where the blower resistor is located - or a visit to a dealership parts counter often (or
Advance Auto Parts is helpful too) ofen clarifies questions I have from Haynes manuals (the cheapest car repair guides).

All this assumes that you've correctly diagnosed your blower control problem -- as in "replace the blower resistor when the blower works only on the MAX/Highest setting."

To install:
  1. Install the control unit in the reverse order of removal. After installation, operate the control unit controls to see whether it works properly.
  2. Run the self-diagnosis function to confirm that there are no problems in the system.

There is antifreeze leaking from the rear of my 2005 kia sedona. I I am not sure what it is leaking from but there is 2 hoses under there! Why would there be antifreeze in the rear of the van?


many vans have rear heater cores for added passenger comfort, so this is not unusual, it is very possiable either the hoses or there connections to the rear eater core are leaking or the heater core itself is leaking.
