TOM, THERE IS A REASON OTHER THAN HOSES, YOU MAY HAVE A CLOGGED HEATER CORE OR HEATER VALVE NOT OPERATING PROPERLY, YOU NEED YOUR FORD DEALER TO HELP, YOU NEED YOUR HEATER FOR SURE!

I have an 2001 ss camaro and I woke up to a puddle of antifreeze under her. Reservoir is full. Hoping it a nothing major but where is the location to the freeze plug


If you are sure that it is antifreeze and reservoir is full, start up your car and put it on car ramps or a rack and find the location of the leak. You can run the car until temp gauge registers mid-temp especially in cold weather. A fan blowing on the motor will help cool engine. Good luck finding the leak.

I put a brand new heater core, radiator, water pump an thermastat but it still takes forever to blow heat out an then it doesn't get that hot.. what's the problem? my vehicle is a 1995 jeep wrangler 2.5 4...


Could be the heater bypass valve is stuck or the heater core is blocked.
I'd check the heater core first.You may have trapped air in the cooling system or the heater core may be partially plugged up. Engine coolant is delivered to the heater core through two heater hoses. With the engine idling at normal operating temperature, set the temperature control knob in the full hot position, the mode control switch knob in the floor heat position, and the blower motor switch knob in the highest speed position. Using a test thermometer, check the temperature of the air being discharged at the HVAC housing floor outlets.
Temperature Reference
Ambient Air Temperature 15.5° C (60° F) 21.1° C (70° F) 26.6° C (80° F) 32.2° C (90° F)
Minimum Air Temperature at Floor Outlet 52.2° C (126° F) 56.1° C (133° F) 59.4° C (139° F) 62.2° C (144° F)
If the floor outlet air temperature is too low, Both of the heater hoses should be hot to the touch. The coolant return heater hose should be slightly cooler than the coolant supply heater hose. If the return hose is much cooler than the supply hose, locate and repair the engine coolant flow obstruction in the cooling system.
OBSTRUCTED COOLANT FLOW
Possible locations or causes of obstructed coolant flow: Pinched or kinked heater hoses. Improper heater hose routing. Plugged heater hoses or supply and return ports at the cooling system connections. A plugged heater core. If proper coolant flow through the cooling system is verified, and heater outlet air temperature is still low, a mechanical problem may exist.
MECHANICAL PROBLEMS
Possible locations or causes of insufficient heat: An obstructed cowl air intake. Obstructed heater system outlets. A blend door not functioning properly.
TEMPERATURE CONTROL
If the heater outlet air temperature cannot be adjusted with the temperature control knob on the A/C Heater control panel, the following could require service: The A/C Heater control. The blend door actuator.
The blend door. Improper engine coolant temperature

You are going to need access to a scan tool for this.plug the scanner into your truck and look at the engine coolant temp. if it's 75 out and your engine is cold,the coolant sensor should read 75.If it reads 40 or 25deg.it adds a bunch of fuel,just as if it was trying to start the engine on a cold day.If you can use an infrared temp gun,warm the engine...compare the sensor reading with the temp at the thermostat...

How do you fix the temp gauge it stopped working ad is stuck above the H


Hello tj60576: My name is Roger I will help you. If the temp gauge is stuck? Locate the temp sensor on the motor.Disconnect the wire. After disconnecting the wire. Ground the plug end of the wire. You can do this with a extra piece of wire. Observe the temp gauge with the key on. The gauge should move to cold side of the gauge. If the gauge still reads hot or above then the problem is either in the dash or the gauge itself. You will find the sensor located on the cross over pipe front of the engine far right hand side of the tube.
Should you need further help please just ask. Please rare the answer you received. This way I know the answer helped. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

the heating element is in 1 or 2 engine core plugs in the side of the engine block , kinda hard to see from on top but just follow the wire coming from it to the end of the cord , thats if your vehicle has the option of block heaters.

The gauges have stopped working ? Fuse under dash seems to be OK ?


Behind the dash is what they call a constant voltage regulator. It controls the guages. It's small and located behind the dash near speedo.
