End of coolant stack has snapped off inside hose, 1994 v6

Not sure of proper terminology, seems to be a steel tube going back thru the firewall. seems to be some sort of sleeve setup on the end of it, the end of which has snapped off inside the rubber coolant hose.

    yes, perth australia.Guess I'm trying to find out if I'll have to replace the complete core, or if the end is detachable

  • ariandwayne Jan 03, 2009

    the pipe. there seems to be some sort of clip arrangement, [or brace?] behind the broken section, I was hoping it meant the end was replaceable

If you want a cheap fix and you don't use the heater at all... unhook the other hose and join the two together with a fitting and two hose clamps.... if you want to fix it properly... yes you need to replace the core... the pipe is broken off completely... or just the hose ?

No heat or very little heat in a 2001 blazer and iv tried everything ...it will blow some heat then go cold


Bad coolant flow. check for low coolant, also a thermostat could be restricting proper coolant flow. If coolant is full in the radiator than touch your upper radiator hose to see if it is hot. If their is proper coolant level and engine is warmed up to temp and radiator hose is cold replace your thermostat.

I have a 2002 nissan xterra and heater hose broke off at firewall,the insert thats inside the hose going into the firewall broke off inside the firewall.Is it possible to repair without geting behind the...


Remove the firewall rubber grommet to the broken pipe in the firewall. Clean the remaining end of the broken pipe real good, apply a drop of oil on it, then push the heater hose back in and tighten the hose clamp back on. You will need a 12 point box end wrench and it will be slow due to limited access. It should work.

1994 ford mustang 3.8 v6 blower only blows thru defrost


Defrost is a default position for when there is a loss of vacuum. The vacuum controls the blend air doors. Start at the intake manifold and follow the vacuum hoses. There should be one that goes to a resivour (I think its behind a fender). It should T off and go inside the car. If the resivour is cracked or any of the lines are leaking that will cause the blower to only go through defrost.

I have also seen where ford uses plastic tubes and the dry battery acid had fallen on the tubes and ate holes in them. If any of the plastic tubes are broken, then each broken end can be inserted into a small enough rubber vacuum hose to repair them.

How do you replace the coolant tempature switch on a 94 Ford Escort wagon, 1.9 Liter


The coolant temperature switch and fan control switch are located sie by side, mounted in the steel portion of the heater hose that runs from the thermostat housing to the firewall, it is underneath the air intake tube and the ignition coil pack, mounted to the back of the cylinder head. Either drain out some coolant or be very quick, and you can unplug and unscrew each switch from the hose and replace it with a new one. Make sure the engine is cold. After replacing make sure to check the coolant level add as neccessary. The single wire connector switch is for the guage, and the other is for fan control. Hope this helps, let me know.

Coolant leaking at back of engine,could it be the heater core


the heater core leaks inside the car, it is either a hose or a core plug.

Coolant leak close to firewall from 90 degree rubber elbow. 93 pontiac 2.3 liter. It looks like there is a hose missing. Is this an overflow or am I missing a hose? If I am where does it lead?


hoses at the firewall connect the heater core inside the car to the engines coolant system.there are 2 heater hoses.the hose may have deteriorated or if the90* elbow has a clamp at the firewall end and is loose,the inlet tube of the heater core may be broken.use a flashlight for closer inspection.rapid coolant loss will result either way.

Low heat running & no heat at idol


I'm betting your heater core is getting plugged up. With vehicle cooled off, drain rad, and remove heater hoses going into firewall at back of engine area. Cut & connect a garden hose of proper size to one of the copper tubes coming out of the firewall. Run water through it for a while to clear it out, now connect it to other tube & do the same. Re-attach hoses, fill rad with proper coolant mix and start engine with heater (not defrost) on while you do it. Keep topping up rad as coolant goes down. Let it run for a while, and rev the engine a little every once in a while and hold it there for 20-30 seconds just to speed up the air bleed and circulation process. Leave the cap off until it reaches normal operating temperature & wait for rad fan to come on, then off 2 to 3 times to make sure all air is out of the system. Put rad cap back on & top up coolant return bottle to proper level, and check that bottle for a couple of days just in case level goes down a bit after. If you have the time when heater hoses are off, I recommend plugging one of the tubes, (bottom one) and using the hose for flushing attached to other tube, and a funnel, and filling the core with "CLR" and letting it sit in there overnight to clean out calcium build up better inside the heater core. Then drain it, flush it & re-connect next day, but that's up to you. Good Luck, let us know how it goes.
