I need heater hoses diagram for 93 Isuzu amigo 2.3. My system was bypassed & I need help


People rarely bypass the heater core unless it's either cracked or clogged beyond fixing!

Heater cores are usually behind the dashboard and it's about an 6_10 hour job if you know what you're doing.
Mechanics charge around $750 to $1200 to replace a heater core.

How to install a new heater ore for a 2002 saturn sl


It's a long 7-10 hour job.

Have to remove the dashboard

then remove hoses to heater core
then remove wires going to heater core circuit board
then remove heater core
replace it and put everything back together without messing anything under your dashboard.

Mechanics charge between $700 to $1000 to replace one.

If the core is not leaking (wet passenger side floor) you may want to try a reverse flush before touching anything, remove the 2 hoses in the engine compartment at the firewall leading to the heater core and with a garden hose flood the heater core connector until it the water is clear then do the other connector.

If that don't work and your not sure you can do the replacement correctly don't do it.

Heater core replacement. Haynes manual and car have major differences.


Heater core is removed from inside the cabin. About a two hour job. The hardest part is removing the hoses in the engine bay.
In the cabin, remove the beauty panel under the glovebox; remove the glovebox, and move the HVAC controller. The heater housing, or cover is held with two screws, and the core is held with one screw (clamp).
Remove the HVAC module assembly. Refer to HVAC Module Assembly Replacement.

Remove the heater core/evaporator tube seals from the module.

2002 ford taurus - need to replace heater core. do you have to remove the entire dash or is there a short cut? also is $600 including labor at a shop a typical price for this job?


The labor time to replace the heater core is 5.5 hours if equipped with a center console, and 5.0 hours without. Multiply this by the shops hourly rate and you have the labor time. Ex: 5.0 x $100.00 per hr. = $500 labor plus parts. The heater core will be approx. $100.00 (Ford # F80Z-18476-AA) and coolant will be approx. $25.00. Labor times will vary depending on the labor book but should not vary by more than 1/2 hour. Sometimes a coolant flush and thermostat replacement may be recommended. Flushing can run $100 and a thermostat should cost no more than $25.00 plus .8 hours.

As far as shortcuts, the dash does have to be removed but could be partially pulled back. This should be done by an experienced person since costly damage could occur. Good luck.

How long does it take to replace the heater core


This depends on how hard it is to get to your particular vehicle style core. Some vehicles require to rip out the entire dash, others may be exposed. For an exposed heater core, I've done it in about 30 minutes to an hour...for the dash destruction add in about another hour or 2.

Remove and replace heater core 86 f150


This is not a terribly complicated job -- it's mostly bolts, hoses and clamps. It can be messy depending on how much coolant there is in it.

Access to it may be the biggest headache depending on whether it's under the hood or under the dashboard.

Doing this job for the first time will probably take about 4 hours.
