Question about 1996 Ford Explorer
My explorer isn't getting any heat and when i do cut it on the coolant leaks out from the bottom like someone cut the sink on, then the truck starts to steam up from under the hood back towards the window. I have to open the radiator valve to release the pressure. what could it be i think its the heater core but im not sure help me please
You're on the right track. grab a flash light and crawl under your truck to look for trails left from coolant leaks. if this is happening only when you turn your heater on, but the engine runs fine and there's no leak any other time, it's either you're heater core, or just the hoses going to it. look above the exhaust pipes, all the steam rolling out from under the hood is the coolant hittling hot exhaust or the hot engine.
