2003 mercury sable blows cool air when heater is turned on.


Most likely it is a clogged heater core. Have your heater core reverse flushed or your blend door is stuck open.

Cooling system


It's probably a dealer only part, so the dealer should be able to identify it. I would say its a bypass tube or its connected to the heater hose components.
You might be able to repost the question with a video showing the area around the tube and what it connects to.

Car Dealer said that the Thermostat Bypass was leaking on my 300 Chrysler and the part is like 135.00 but labor was going to be around 400.00 for labor! So I am looking at a 585.00 bill?? Is this...


I don't have enough info to advise, but I will say you should always get a second opinion if you doubt the first.
They could be talking about a tube under the upper intake that sends coolant to the heater hoses. You would have to remove the upper intake to access it. Your model may or may not have this tube.

My heater hoses have been removed and bypassed. I need a heater hose diagram for my 1998 chrysler town and country van with a 3.8 L. I don't know which hose will plug into which heater core tube


That's easy

Drive around back of a dealer,walk in the open
service bay doors & ask a tech to come out &
tell you.

I walk into dealers all the time, anywhere I want to go,
& never get stopped

If your questioned your just looking for the parts dept & leave

Heater hose bypass


I'm guessing you have a bad heater core? To bypass this, you can disconnect hoses from the heater core. You may be able to do this from under the hood or under the car, but it may also be under the dash. IWhen you get these disconnected, you can use a piece of copper tubing or something the sameput the copper tubing into the ends of the hoses joining them together, bypassing the heater core. If it's your heater hose gon, you can cut it shorter by the leak but it is all best to replace rather than hack. Good luck with it. I hope that is what you maen't

Still very low heater output after changing thermostat, water pump. Blend door ok. car does not run hot. takes a long time for temp gauge to read from cold


These Tauruses had a problem with the heater cores plugging up, blowing out the head gaskets and no heat issues. Ford issued a TSB#98B26 (Tech Service Bulletin) to modify water pump and install a heater hose bypass tube. I would start by completely flushing the system with a good flush. Then reverse flushing the heater core. Refill the system and add a good additive. Also you can install the heater bypass tube as described in the TSB. The last one I did ran around $90 and 2 hours labor. Hope this helps you out.......
