You will also smell antifreeze/Prestone Sweet smell if the heater core is leaking and the windshield will steam up in cold winter not to mention the obvious coolant loss. i would think if it's water, unless you are using water in the cooling system, then it could be caused by the AC when it's on. This is normal for the hoses to have moisture on them and you will see it on the ground underneath the car when the AC is running.

SOURCE: there are 2 hoses coming threw the the fire wall

The only hoses that should be coming through the firewall would normally be the heater hoses but they would generally be more in the middle or on the passenger side of the vehicle. Do these appear to be add on type or original equipment? If someone has added something it would be a strange location.

Where is the heater core located on 99 Ford escort ZX2?

Typically you will find the heater core sits inside the dash just inside the fire wall of the engine compartment, from the engine bay you can follow the water lines from the cooling system and water pump that go back to the fire wall and through to the heater core, find those to hoses together and the heater core is on the other side under the dash, usually under passenger side under dash behind the heater box, they are usually labor intensive to pull, and some require pulling the dash partly off etc.

it is safe, the A/C drain is plugged, if you open the hood and look at the passenger side of the firewall just below were the A/C lines go threw the fire wall you will see a small rubber boot pull the boot off the nipple and use a small wire to clean out the nipple i have even used a tooth pick to clear the blockage, most likely you have a leaf or a-corn blocking the passage, stop parking under the trees, the air inlet for this car is at the back of the hood and junk gets into the heater/A/C box threw this air inlet.

I need to know how to change out the heater hose on a 1991 420 SEL

If you mean the one going through the fire wall, cut it off an inch away from fire wall and join with connector and hose clamps from a parts store .

If different, some models, the hose terminates in the scuttle area behind the fire wall.

I remember on one, I had to reach in under dash to disconnect the hose end.

You may need to put the hood into it's service position to acess the end of the hose.

There is a release mechanism on the hood struts or the hinges so hood will stand straight up.

I have a 1995 chevy silverado 1500. the heater hose bursed. do I have to remove the dash board to repair it?

The heater hose connects to the heater core through the fire wall, under the hood, remove heater hose clamp at fire wall under the hood, remove clamp at other end, install new heater hose, no you don't have to do any thing under the dash.

Heater only blows out luke warm air

Your heater cour in the dash needs to be cleaned out or replaced. It is where the 2 hoses go threw the firewall. I have taken the hoses off and blowen compressed air threw it and it helped. if you got to change it you will have to take it out from under the dash.

A heater core is located behind the dash on the passenger side. If you look under the hood you will see 2 heater hoses going to the fire wall again, on the passenger side, your heater core is located behind the hoses. You will need to take the dash loose or off to get to the air box the heater core rides in.
