Well of course if it is leaking its bad.
If one hose is hot and the other is just warm it could be blocked.
If both hoses are hot and you have no heat you could have a blend door problem.

SOURCE: heater core replacement of 1995

If your truck has air conditioning you drain the radiator and disconnect the heater hoses on the right of the engine at the firewall.get in the cab on the passenger side and remove the grove box for better access than remove the seven screws that holds the cover on remove the vacuum source but leave the vacuum harness attached to the cover and remove the cover than remove the heater core from its chanber.Now all you have to do is put every thing back in place.

SOURCE: heater core 2001 ford tauras

These are on of the hardest heater cores in the industry to replace. A typical garage will get between $800.00 and $1200.00 to replace, the dealer will get $1600.00 because you have to completely remove the steering column the dash, discharge the A/C system reomve the heater box, split it and replace the core. The job is so labor intensive you would be crazy not to replace the A/C evaporator at the same time. This is not a job for an amature or ever a class "B" tech. leave this one to the Pro's.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Allow the engine to cool down. Drain the cooling system to a level below the heater core fittings on the firewall.
  2. Disconnect the heater hoses from the heater core tubes and plug hoses.
  3. Remove the five nuts that secure the blower motor housing to the firewall.
  4. Pull the housing away from the firewall. Disconnect any wire harness plugs which inhibit the housing.
  5. Remove the remaining nuts which secure the heater air plenum (inside the passenger compartment) to the firewall.
  6. In the passenger compartment, remove the instrument panel. Refer to Section 10.
  7. Pull the heater air plenum rearward from the firewall and remove it from the vehicle.
  8. Remove the heater core from the heater air plenum.
  9. Inspect all air seals on the components and firewall and replace any that are damaged.

  1. To install:
  2. Install the heater core into the air plenum chamber.
  3. Position the heater air plenum against the firewall from the passenger compartment.
  4. Under the hood, install the plenum retaining nuts.
  5. Install the blower motor housing to the firewall and install the attaching nuts.
  6. Connect the heater hoses to the heater core tubes at the dash panel in the engine compartment. Do not over-tighten the hose clamps.
  7. Install the instrument panel.
  8. Check the coolant level and add coolant as required. Connect the negative battery cable.
  9. Start the engine and check the system for coolant leaks.

2005 ford explorer heat dosnt work


pull back the carpet on the passenger side and check for moisture, if it is wet your heatercore is bad. if no moisture and both hoses going to your heater core are hot it is possible the cable operated door is failing to open. this link should help in both cases http://www.autozone.com/autozone/repairguides/Lincoln-Aviator-Ford-Explorer-Exp-Sport-Exp-Sport-Trac-Mercury-Mountaineer-2000-2005/Heater-Core/Removal-Installation/_/P-0996b43f802e40b6

How do you get the heater core out of a 1995 Ford Explorer XLT? Thanks


You have to remove the instrument panel, discharge the a/c and then remove the heater/ A/C plenum from the firewall to access the heater core. BIG JOB for a do-it-yourselfer.

While driving my 95 explorer i noticed the heater wasnt getting hot its luke warm and when i turn on the defroster i start to smell anti freeze and all of the windows fog up


no heat is probably low coolant or bad thermostat,although you have fog and smell ! the heating and cooling systems are closed systems the only way the windows fog is the coolant is hot and steams inside the car due to some leak inside the heater core box. as well as the smell being present. Now it is possible that a little leak has occured where the coolant supply or return line connects to the heater core and is running into the car which is running onto the core and creating steam and smell. hopefully it is a easy clamp tighten fix for you.

My 1995 ford explorer has 281765 miles on it it runs great but it just started leaking water from somewhere the floor on the passenger side is wet and i cant find the problem


If it's green or has a sweet smell, it's anti-freeze. This is a heater hose connection or most likely the heater core itself. Check your fluid level, if it's low you have a leak. If these aren't the problem, then you have a seal leak (body) somewhere.

if your head gasket was bad it would most likely be overheating. your antifreeze usage could be from and intake manifold gasket leak which would cause it to use antifreeze but not overneat. the last possible thing i can think of is that there is a leaky hose that is just pooling up somewhere and not leaving puddles.
