SOURCE: 2001 expedition heater does not heat well

I would flush the whole system with radiater flush then replace with new coolant. But make sure the heater is set to full heat when you flush it ( while driving around the block with flush in it) so the small radiater that has the hot water flowing through it gets flushed too. It may have some build up in it stopping the full flow of heated water/coolant through. If it is bad enough may need to remove and spray out the rubber hoses from the motor to the heater core, and possibly remove the heater core and hose it out to make it flow better and therefore increase the heating ability. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 2000 expedition heat problem

first of all I would make sure the car has proper amount of coolant and you are right it is very possible you have an air pocket in the system also ask your self did you change the thermastat after you did the heater core when the car is cold make sure there is coolant at the cold mark on the reservior bottle because you might not have enough coolant then start the car and get it up to temp and if the coolant goes not go up to the hot mark when the car gets to temp you do not have enought coolant just keep adding coolant and you will see the bubble after the thermastat opens

SOURCE: The heater do not work in my 2001 ford expedition

sounds like your thermostat is not working (stuck closed). if the hose on top is soft after several minutes of engine running this is definitely the problem. good luck

Remove the throttle body housing on the top of the intake, it is a 90 degree tunnel like small piece held by 4 small bolts, turn it over and look for two holes, these holes are for the EGR valve flow, they are probably plugged up with carboned crud, clean them out with the tip of a screwdriver if neccessary to remove all the crud, once its clean reinstall it and reset your check engine light, hope this helps, let me know

How do i bypass the heater core on my 2001 gmc jimmy?

Check the heater hose sizes. Buy a connector to put the hoses together and hose clamps. Cut the hoses, insert the connector, and tighten the clamps.

If you just want to stop the coolant flow, go to any parts house and buy either a heater hose shut off valve (cut the hose, insert the valve, and install hose clamps) or buy an external hose shutoff that clamps the hose shut stopping flow.

What if you leave the heater hose outlet off your car will your car run hot

Won't run hot

The heater hose is to put hot coolant
into the heater core for cabin heat, just won't be
hot inside

You have to put the two hoses together if you
don't want to have water thru the heater core,
then they don't do anything but circulate coolant
but not inside the car

TL Magna replace strut top bushes how to drop

try not to kill yourself.
You need a spring compressor for this job.
Three nuts on top , two at nuckle , disconnect any brake hoses or wires attached to strut if present ,
If brake hose goes through the bracket on the strut , and there is no options but disconnect brake line , I usually cut bracket carefully the way I can split bracket and take hose out without disconnecting the brake line.But make sure that it cut really nice so you can put it back together with locking spring.
After that , take strut assy. out and COMPRESS THE SPRING (spring compressor) ,after-take center nut on top of the strut out and you done. Memorize the way (mark it) spring was sitting , and sequence
for the parts and put it back together .
Installation - opposit of removal.

Is it possible to cut the heater core out of the heating system

Sure, just leave the heater out of the loop, find the 2 hoses and you can buy a connector at the parts store to connect the 2 hoses together.

You will need a soldering iron and some acid core solder. Skin back about 1/2-3/4 inch of wire on each wire, add a peice of shrink tube, twist the wires together and solder them together, side the shrink tube over the soldered area and heat the tube to shrink, or use some electrical tape. Make sure everything is taped up well to keep water out.

Replaced Heater Core. Replaced Thermostat, Removed Valve from heater Hose. still no heat.

When re-filling the radiator you need to keep the heater on high heat. If that has no effect, feel both heater hoses to make sure they are hot. Last, I hope you checked the blend doors for proper operation before you put it back together, often they will fail and not open or close properly. a bad vacuum motor that controls those doors can also be faulty.

I have a twisted and leakin fuel line The leak is between the tank and the fuel filter, what is the easiest way to fix this?

The easiest way is to cut it out and replace it with a piece of steel brake line and a pair of compression fittings. Use a small tubing cutter to cut out the bad piece and clean up the ends with some emery cloth so that the ferrule will slide on the old line. Don't forget to put the nut on first.Put it together loosefirst and make sure you push the lines all the way into the fittings before you tighten the nuts. IT could leak if you don't but don't overtighten them or you will squash the line. If you can't get the old line smooth enough to slide ferrules on then get some rubber gas hose and clamps. Be sureto push the steel lines together before you tighten the clamps because the line is pressurized. You may have to double clamp the lines to prevent leaking. Once you have it together start the truck and crawl back under and check for leaks. Tighten what is leaking enoughto stop the leaks and you are good to go. Don't forget to bring a pail to catch gas when you cut the line. Hope this helps.
