    The heater core is inside the dash. It is basically a radiator that heats the inside of the car. Antifreeze flows in and out of it under the dash and air blown through it by your heater fan takes heat out of it to warm the interior. I think you are referring to a block heater which plugs into an AC outlet to keep the oil from getting too thick. Unless you had one installed on your car -you don't have one...No modern cars come with these. (i have one on my truck which was added..Good luck

Door behind actuator, should there be one, any pics or diagrams online ?


sorry no practicals here on this american battle wagon ,never see them here in spain but the heater core will no doubt be at the bottom of the heater/AC unit and if the actuator isnt working then no heat ,take any covers off around the heater unit and if need be tie a piece of string to it so it can be opened as and when ,then look for the parts later in a scrapyard.Sounds like a crude answer but i have never seen one so i cannot tell you ,if i was their then i would soon work it out for you and rig it up for some heat as nothing worse than a car with no heat even here in spain on the mediteranian where it never drops below 0?C ,in fact anything below 20?C is cold to me.

How do you bypass the heater core on a 1998 Ford Bronco 2?


Disconnect both hoses from the core and one of them also from the engine. Hook the other one back to where you took one off, making a loop. The picture below is not a bronco, but gives you the idea.
By the way, your core is easy to replace. It almost pops right out from under the dash. I ahve included picture below.

Remove and replace heater core procedures:

  1. Disconnect the heater hoses from the heater core tubes and plug hoses.
  2. In the passenger compartment, remove the five screws attaching the heater core access cover to the plenum assembly and remove the access cover.
  3. Pull the heater core rearward and down, removing it from the plenum assembly.

To install:

  1. Position the heater core and seal in the plenum assembly.
  2. Install the heater core access cover to the plenum assembly and secure with five screws.
  3. Install the heater hoses to the heater core tubes at the dash panel in the engine compartment. Do not over-tighten hose clamps.
  4. Check the coolant level and add coolant as required. Connect the negative battery cable.
  5. Start the engine and check the system for coolant leaks.

Car heat takes 10 to 15 minutes on a 2005 dodge


could be clogged up heater core or the heating helper element ..if you look for the heater air box you should see a 3 wire plug with i believe its 2 screws on it remove it and start the car and have someone hold it {not the coil wire ends and turn on the heat it should glow red hot this is the heater coil helper you may also have insufficient antifreeze remove radiator cap and check fluid levels also while your there feel the top and bottom hose to see if they both get hot and that you feel water in them but 1st ensure the radiator is full if just the top hose going into the heater-core to the firewall is hot and the bottom one is cold you should have a radiator flush to dislodge the Gunk buildup in the heater core .

Hot air blows but cools down in 15-20 seconds.


You likely have a restriction in the heater coolant hose circuit - perhaps a coolant control valve not fully opening, or a kinked hose.
Insufficient coolant volume is flowing to keep the heater core hot.
Try back flushing the heater core system with a garden hose to check flow.
