Question about 1996 Lincoln Town Car

1 Answer

Heater I had to have the by-pass hose replaced, after getting this done, I get very little if any heat from the heater. I originally thought the heater was leaking , so I put in some stop leak. Since the repair was done , and not getting any heat, I back flushed the core, and replaced the thermostat. The intake hose to the core gets very hot, but the exit hose is not very hot. I will probly have to re-place the core. Is there any whare I can get directions on removal of the core? I also get a faint smell of anti freeze inside. I ran the test for the doors, and all came out normal. Thanks Chuck

1996 cadillac deville I by passed heater coil but water is coming from somewhere else and is running on floor it's not heater coil and what ever it is its draining my radiator so car over heated

To by pass the heater coil, you must connect the two hoses going into the heater coil. Did you do this? or did you just plug one hose line? best to replace heater coil if it is leaking to get heat working in winter.

Whats the problem if blender is gone in 1998 GMC Sonoma

Are the controls for opening the heat functioning? Opening the heater core and allowing fluid to pass through the core would be where I would look. For instance you could remove the outlet hose from the core and see if water is passing through. Thinking it might be a clogged heater core. How about the heat gauge on the dash? You said the hoses were hot so guess the engine is reaching proper temperature. If you have A/C can you get warm air when you use defrost? If so, the heater core is OK. Conclusion: My first thought is the heater controls are not working properly but if they are then my second thought is the core itself. Hope this helps you.

Installed a circulation heater in a 2003 Highlander, now very little heat in the cab

is there a check valve in the kit? I would have thought the flow would be to the heater core ,otherwise the core won't get hot water.

Can i by pass the heater core

i`m guessing that you are talking about the heater core blew and you have coolant on the inside of your can bypass the heater core by disconnecting the hoses that connect to the heater core and connecting a hose connector between the two hoses and your done.however if you need heat you won`t have it until the heater core is replaced.

Where is the heater control valve on a 2005 Buick Lacrosse?

It sounds like the heater control valve may be stuck. This valve allows heated water from the engine to pass through the heater core which in turn heats the inside of your car. If this valve is stuck, only a small portion of heated water will pass through. If this is the case, you should have the control valve replace.

You should be able to find it by following the heater hoses coming from the radiator leading back to the firewall. These hoses will about 1/2 - 3/4 of an inch in diameter so you shouldn't get them confused with the normal radiator hoses.

You can probably purchase a new valve at an auto parts store but I'm sure the dealer will have one.

If that's not the problem, it could be that the core itself is clogged up. That's a little more expensive and more of a pain to replace. if this is helpful please dont forget to give rateing thank you

I have a 1998 ford f-150 and no heat. i have replaced the heater core, blend door and control switch. checked the blend door motor- works fine. have tryed 3 thermostats. when i replaced the core i back...

You just might have an air lock. Try bleeding the system from the heater hose at the firewall. Losen one hose a little, and at operating temp. open slightly to let air out. You will lose some coolant, but just refill the rad. Now, both hoses should get hot.

No heat in my dakota. flushed heater core and replaced therm with a reg one.

check for poor flow to heater core-change heater hoses -check for lime build up at intake connector or worn out water pump -if you only put water through core try using CLRlime cleaner in core-get two 6in pieces or heater hose hook them to core and pour it in and leave for 15 mins then wash out with water hose

1984 944 Porsche - Overheating

did you replace the heater core? Does your heater work when you turn it on full, with fan. What I'm getting at is your control to the heater stuck open an blocked. Also believe it or not if your heater is fully functioning you can cool your engine somewhat by turning the heat on inside the car, thus increasing the surface area for heat dissipation. Try a back flush of your entire cooling system.

I believe that the heater core blew out. Where are the heater hoses on the Achieva? I want to jump them out until I get it repaired.

First you`ll have no heat if you do this,but you already know this. Depending on whether you have a 4or6 cylinder really shouldn`t matter, with a 4 you should be able to see the down below the exhaust on the drivers side under the steering arm on the firewall two black hoses these are what you need to block. Now for the the actual work,raise the the car,drain the fluid. Back by the firewall from underneath you should be able to see the hoses,depending on wether you have the original or the normal screw type clamps they will have to be removed,the screw type are a little easier to take off. If you still have the original clamps auto stores usually have a special locking pliers type tool for making the job a little easier cause these clamps have to be kept open to slide them back on the hose. Once the clamps are out of the way you`ll have to gently pry the hoses off the heater core.Wear protective eyeware as the core will still have fluid in it. Now if you can get or bend a piece of 1/2 inch aluminum tubing to put in the open ends of the hose from the top pull the ends of the tubes up where you can get to them fit in the tube and put on the clamps. It is best to use the screw type clamps because these will have to be tight and unfortunately only one off the tubes are 1/2 inch the other is probably 5/8 inch make shure that once you have connected the piece off tubing to the hoses you position it away from the exhaust pipes and secure it. Also you`ll notice a black pastic box looking thing somewhere along the heater hoses DO NOT MESS WITH IT or you`ll be buying a new heater hose.Good luck Ken
