What is the question tho. to answer two possible questions ... it could very well be a frost plug leaking. and to see better you will need to jack the vehicle up (SAFELY) and look from under the vehicle.

Heater hose/core diagram for a 2001 ford windstar. I have a leak I am trying to repair and need to know where to locate hoses and core.

while facing motor it would be left side. 2 hoses running into fire wall. although not 100% sure heater core is most likely behind glove box.

My 1998 chevy cavalier heater and ac does not work at all also the blower and fan does not come on and it keeps blowing the fuses

I would think either your fan motor is bust. Or it could be a cabling issue.

If you can access the fan motor. Think yours is accessed behind the glove box. Test the fan.

You should be able to get a replacement from a breakers yard.

If not the fan motor is could be a failed switch/speed selector.

Coolent leaks from the top of motor. Tracked it to that hose , is that heater core hose?

Kind of hard to see, but I think it is. If it goes into the firewall behind the engine, I'm sure it must be.

Heater hose busted on my 2001 Montana van

If it's a heater hose, it will go to the firewall behind engine, where it connects to the heater core's fitting that juts out from firewall. Hose goes over that fitting. Heater hoses are fairly easy to replace, maybe not so easy on yours, due to lack of space. Drain the coolant before taking off hose, loosen clamps on it, then start pulling it off. Watch for a hose holding bracket that also needs to be removed before hose is completely free. Some do, some don't have such a bracket. Hire a neighborhood kid that works on cars to replace it, as sometimes that hose to heater core fitting can get stuck on tight, and if one starts yanking or pulling on it, you can break the fitting and will then need a new heater core-big expense to replace. Good luck and merry christmas in capital letters, lol.

929 Mazda (1992) No Heat But A/C Works I have a 929 Mazda 1992 year. Does not blow any heat. I noted that the 30 amp fusible link for the heater was busted. Replaced it but still no heat. A busted fuse...

First check your fluid in your radiator if its low your heater will not work. Check all your heater hoses and make sure they are not kinked.
Your heater core may be plugged That will stop the heat flowing as well. If it's the heater core it will have to come out and replaced most likely. Not sure if there is a heater valve on that car.

Overheating leaking water profusly especially when you turn it off. Leaking somewhere behind the motor, also passenger side heat not working blowing cold air.

It sounds like you have a busted heater core hose. The only solution is to pin point the leak and replace the hose that's leaking. There are usually two heater core hoses coming out of the firewall on the passenger side of the vehicle. Examine both of them carefully for a blowout. Many times when a hose goes bad or is getting ready to go bad, it will have some swelling or deformation around the end of it. I hope this helps.

I busted my heater hoses fitting, the one behind the waterpump, and i cant get to it. I've taken the waterpump off. what else do I need to remove to get to it or where can I find a diagram

One heater hose runs to the top of the water pump the other one runs to the thermostat housing so I don't understand. If you took the water pump off you should have a tube like stem coming out of the top of the water pump, the heater hose connects to that.

Cant find heater core hose

The heater core hoses go into the firewall area on the passenger side of the engine compartment,But I think you should look for the leak by adding water and with the engine running,watch to see if you can locate the leak,the location you are describing sounds more like a freeze plug or even the head gasket,But look and see first.

Please rate this a fixya
