Question about 1998 Ford Taurus
There seems to have a leak from the coolant reservoir but can't detect it, although is always running empty. Also how do you replace the heater core in order to have heating? What's the degree of difficulty and where is this heater core located?
The heater core is located in behind the dashboard, I have seen trained mechanics take more than a day removing and reinstalling the dash on Taurus, probably not something to tackle at home unless you've done work like that before. But I would suggest that there may be another problem causing the no heat situation, unless the heater core is just blocked with rust. This can usually be flushed out to rectify the problem. The heater system is also electronically controlled on that model, and may have anything from a loose connection to a faulty servo motor or a broken door shaft that could cause the same fault.
As for the coolant level needing topped up frequently, it would be advisable to get this checked out first and repaired, as you will never have heat from the heater if there is no coolant in the system.
Hope this helps,
