They go to your heater core which is in the big black plastic box behind the passenger side of your dash. It's like a mini radiator that heats the air that passes through it for your defrost and heater.

    Unless you meant they need to be hooked back up to your water pump for circulation....

SOURCE: I recently replaced my oil pan gasket in my 96 F150 6cyl, 4.9L.

if you have the 4.6L engine the hoses both connect at the back of the engine on the right side to a black pipe and a silver pipe the silver pipe stands straight up and the black one is at about 45 degrees, generally speaking the heater hoses come from the water inlet and outlet to the core (firewall) the flow or direction of water travel does not matter one is in and the other out of the core, to be for 100% sure I would have to know what exactly engine you have. Hope this helps

Changing heater core and need to now how for 1992 K1500 series 4x4 pickup


Remove coolant and hoses to the heater core. Remove the screws in the bottom plate to get to the heater core. Remove the clip that's on top that holds core in place. Lower the heater core and pull out through the firewall. To install new heater core, use same procedures, except just the exact opposite, such as install by raising heater core up through the firewall, etc....

96 s-10. Temperature gage shows normal temp. Heater blows only COLD air. Can you help?


Check the heater hoses at the engine firewall are they hot? If so then the air temperature control blend door is either jammed or the motor that operates it is defective or both.

Does the 96 grand am have trap door for heater core with out taken the dash out


No trap door.

  • Drain the coolant
  • Remove the center console, the glove box, and the panels under the dashboard.
  • The connections to the hoses are in the engine compartment right at the firewall . The heater hose connection is difficult to get to. You may need to jack up the car and work on the hoses from underneath.

Which hose goes where from firewall to engine on 96 volvo 960?


If my memory doesn't fail me, there are only two hoses and that's the heater hoses.
Since all they do is just send water through the heater coil, it's not that important which hose goes where, but I seem to recall that once they were attached to the heater control valve, one hose sort of ended up higher and one was lower, so attach them accordingly to the top and bottom pipe.
The important part is that they're not kinked.

I have anti-freeze leaking from somewhere near the back and bottom of the motor, not sure if it is exactly the motor or a fluid line or what...what could the problem be?


Well fortunately core/freeze plugs rarely leak anymore so the most likely cause of your leak is a heater hose at the passenger side firewall. Place a piece of clean cardboard under the area and run the engine. Watch closely the two heater hoses coming from the heater control valve and into the firewall(heater core), I'm sure you will find your leak up there. Thanks, Dana

Bad leak from little 2 inch L shaped hose next to lower firewall


its either the hose,or the heater core.
the core can crack where the pipes meet the core and
if you can smell antifreeze in the car and the windshield fogs,it is the core....the hose can also crack on the inside of the firewall and get misdiagnosed as a heater core.
big job,the dash has to come out

Sounds like the heater core (a small radiator of sorts under the dash) is leaking or a hose going to it is leaking. If in a warm climate, you could bypass or block the heater hoses temporarily. Their only purpose is to make heat avail to interior of car. The 2 heater hoses either connect to feedthru's at the firewall or simply pass thru the firewall to the heater core. Every car I've seen has it on passenger side.

Peer up under the dash, it should be clear where it's coming from.
