SOURCE: diagram bypass heater cord on 2001 ford expedition eddie bauer

the heater bypass is quite simple, if you look at the firewall you will see two medium sized coolant lines, remove them from the firewall and link them together using a proper sized tube, you can purchase a kit at a parts store quite cheaply

If you are new to DIY car repair, I recommend you invest in a decent service manual. I think Haynes publishes the best:

You did not need to remove the heater box to replace the cable. There is a hole in the floor the cable passes through.

Lots of nice to know stuff on an otherwise all day heater core change. Pay attention to the notes on NEW o'ring sizes and what screws to keep together.

Heater doesnt work but ac does


Assuming the fan blows OK but you have no heat. Go to the firewall and notice where the heater hoses enter and exit the cabin. You'll notice a metal manifold and also a rubber bypass hose that connects the two. This bypass hose is a design problem and causes the coolant to bypass the heater core which is located inside the cabin under the dash. Over time, the heater core gets blocked by gunk and you'll get no heat. All the coolant flows through the bypass hose when this happens. The fix is to flush the heater core itself. It's difficult to access at the firewall, so I disconnect the two hoses at the engine itself and attach a garden hose to flush it. Before doing this you must clamp (vice grips) the bypass hose so that all of the water goes through the heater core.

Heater is not getting hot enough


This is a very common problem on the Taurus, at least up until the 2001 model and possibly later. The Taurus design incorporates a bypass hose (near the firewall) that connects between the heater hoses entering and exiting the firewall in the engine compartment. As the Taurus ages (6 or 7 years old), the heater core under the dash increasingly gets clogged with gunk because the bypass hose provides a path for the coolant to bypass the heater core itself. The fix is to disconnect the heater hoses at the engine block (too difficult to disconnect these hoses at the firewall-no space) and flush the heater core through these hoses with a garden hose. Before doing this you must crimp (with vise grips and a rag to protect the rubber hose) the bypass hose--otherwise the flushing water will bypass the heater core. I attached the garden hose to an adapter that I could clamp into the heater hose to make the connection. BTW, the coolant in the radiator was a pristine lime green color -notice the dark brown color of the gunk flushed from the heater core. b4d9b81a-db6d-4a32-852d-2725671d69af.jpg d06ea83d-50ae-4178-a917-1275133ccd9c.jpg c195fd24-d013-4f9c-a878-5e49e1ff2612.jpg 2d1a9536-3c83-45c8-8d60-7eea7e95a4e8.jpg 1cc41e46-c4dc-4f8f-924c-4c751e5051f8.jpg

Bypass heater core


jus us a piece of usually half inch copper pipe n disconnect BOTH hoses from heater core and hook them both on each end of copper pipe or whatever u can find that will fit ID of heater hoses...plastic pipe is good too for this...heater core leak?...a good radiator sealer will fix this usually but you must have the heat on full for the solution can travel through the heater core...itmight still leak for awhile n then stop...if not, put some more radiator sealer in...always use the powered aluminum sealer...

2001 Ford Focus: suddenly started leaking coolent. appears to be leakin at the backside of the engine. I am thinking it is a bad hose. Your thoughts


1. Replace all hoses. (top and bottom radiator, and to the heater, there should be two of them).
2. Replace thermostat, and thermostat gasket.

Water leaking inside 2001 ford focus passenger side floor


The ford focus and Taurus models from this period are notorious for water leakage. Unfortunately it can be from two possible causes. Lets start with easiest first. The water dam (black plastic) where the windshied meets the hood (on outside) sometimes pulls away from glass allowing water to run into the crack and then into the dash and into primarily passenger side. The fix for this is listed in a TSB by Ford and the dealer can install, for a price ofcourse, a replacement damn that helps. For my sons Taurus to diagnose if this was the true problem we put a piece of clear packing tape over the place where the dam meets the windshield making sure it was sealed to glass tightly and then waited for next rain and it was dry so that fixed it. SECOND possible cause is a bad heater core. If the wetness smells sweet like radiator fluid or sugary sweet then this is probably a coroded heater core that leaks radiator fluid into the passenger compartment. It is located in center of dash closest to passenger side. Unfortunately if this is the case it needs to be replaced and a radiator shop will charge anywhere between 250 to 500 to do the job with part included. If it is the HEATER core you should check your coolant level regularly because it operates on pressure and with a leakign heater core you can lose pressure and possible have engine overheating. Good luck

My heater not working, i replaced thermostat and radiator hoses, had radiator flushed and rodded, and still no heat. What is wrong?


Too much blockage in heater hoses or heater core.
Bypass valve may be stuck on "bypass" .

1. Remove bypass "Tees", but don't discard.
Replace with straight-through hose fittings.
The core may start leaking under the water pressure since there is no bypass hose.

Once the heater starts working, put Tees back in place. You need bypass protection or the engine will overheat.

When you bypass the heater core the path for the water to go through the core is gone. Correct?, you have connected to engine water line out to the engine water input? thus bypassing the heater core........


No, you just won't have water flow through the heater core, Coolant flows through the engine through the lower radiator hose as the water pump sucks it out of the radiator and pushes it through the engine. It then flows out the top radiator hose when the thermostat opens. It then flows into the radiator to cool off.

Is your heater core leaking?

Fumes that smell like antifreeze through vents!


well it could be a clog but i doubt it. sounds like you will have to replace the heater core and it takes all day as the entire dash and steering column has to come out.
