Couldn't fit 2 different hoses from different stores. so bought a hose slightly bigger it fit tightened clamps drove and it still leaked why does it still leak?

If your talking about a heater hose, maybe the heater core fitting is leaking? With old heater hose, at the heater core fitting, you use a utility knife and split the hose over the fitting and peal it off. Don't jerk on the hose, it may damage the hear core? Then you have to replace heater core.

Leaking antifreeze between firewall and motor on passenger side. just started when i tried to use the heater. could it be the heater core and where is it located

Could be the heater core, or where your heater hoses connect at the firewall. Heater core leak would more than likely put steam in the vents of you car when heater is on and hot and fan on. If the leak is just in the engine compartment, it`s a hose or a loose connection.

95 Camaro Z28 appears to be leaking antifreeze from the hose or hoses that run to the heater core. The hoses are rubber but appear to connect to metal lines then back to rubber before they go into the...

if your rubber hoses are cracked and leaking then replace the hoses with proper size and length.
if the hoses are leaking where they connect to the metal fittings from the heater core then try and tighten up the hose clamps -- they could just be loose.

It is geting water inth air and ventilation system and throw it ina the cab

It's most likely a heater core leak. Hot radiator fluid is passed through the inside of the heater core, and air is passed over that. if there is a pin-hole leak in the radiator core, then it will come out of the vents. Turning off the heat setting will not change the leak either, it will still leak and collect in the lowest spot, and then blow out the vents when it strikes the fan impeller blades. the heater core is fed from 2 smaller radiator hoses. If you look under the hood, you'll see 2 large hoses that come out of the radiator. you'll also see 2 smaller hoses that go back towards the front of your car through the firewall. these 2 little hoses go to your heater core. Most cars require dash removal to change out the heater core. Unless you are pretty handy, I'd leave this one to the shop.

Will not heat. I smell antifreeze inside. Thermostats been changed, new antifreeze added.

If you smell antifreeze in the cabin then it could be a hose loose or the heater core has a leak/pressure leak - in which case get it looked at ASAP because it could lead to overheating of the engine.

Check the hoses going to the heater core and make sure they are not cracked or disfigured and are on tight. Any moisture near or on the core (and/or corresponding corrosion) is an indication the hoses are ot doing there job or the core is leaking.

BTW, If you are loosing coolant (due to a faulty heater core) it could "explode" (relax, you are basically safe on the other side of the dash-board), but the result could be a destroyed heater core and a very expensive repair bill - I know because its happened to me!

97 ford f150 4.6 the pipe that gos to heater core hose is leaking. is this pipe pressed in? thanks

The inlet/outlet pipes (tubing) is an integral part of the heater core. If the actual core is leaking, you 'll need to remove and replace or repair the heater core. Be sure it's not the hose that is failing ... alot easier and cheaper to change out a hose and clamps...

Antifreeze seems to be leaking from my heater

You need to pressure test the system, and observe for leaks at that time, if a hose or valve CAREFULLY CUT hoses form the heater core, it will be fragile and any flexing typically breakes the core..

Where is the heater core hose in my 2000 ford expedition?

check closer to just underneath the firewall--it could be a smaller problem than a heater core--Ford 4.6--5.4 engines have a tube just underneath the intake manifold that the rubber hose goes bad and it will leak towards the back of the engine.Lets hope so-what i hear its very expensive to change a heater core in an Expedition.

Heater core is leaking

Good Day'
The first thing I would check is make sure that it is the heater core that is leaking. It could be just a hose inlet or outlet.
If the hose are ok then the heater core needs to be change.

Hope this help. If you require anything else please let me know
