Question about 1996 Ford F150 Regular Cab

1 Answer

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

Where exactly do my heater hoses from my firewall on the engine side go? There are two hoses and I think I got them mixed up. I need to know exactly where they go. Please help.

    My engine is the 4.9L inline six cylinder, can you tell me where the heater hoses go on that motor instead of the 4.6L.

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

    It has been a long time since I worked on a 4.9L, but the pipe coming out of the water pump is one connection the other is up front in that area I just don't remember exactly where, are the hoses the same length?

    took a little time, one heater hose connects to the water pump and the other one connects to a hose connection on the side of the thermostat housing, this pipe is threaded into the water neck for the thermostat, hope this helps, let me know

It sure sounds like the heater core, especially if you have water leaking inside the cabin. The two heater hoses only go from the engine to the firewall, and do not go into or through the firewall. They connect to the heater core right at the firewall.
Check carefully around the back side of the engine and the heater hoses, though. If a freeze plug is leaking, water will be dripping off the bottom of the engine. If it is leaking before the firewall, that would not be the heater core.

Is antifreeze coming from "weep" hole in bottom of case under shaft nose?
is it coming from the heater hose (small hose coming of side and going into firewall to heater core inside engine compartment?
is it coming from bad gasket between pump and front case?

get a paper towel and dry these areas then start engine. when it starts leaking that will tell you if you need to change the water pump (gasket leak or weep hole shaftseal leak) or if you just need to replace/repair heater hose.

Leaking water from oil pan or behind oil pan


figure out what type/size engine you have, call a dealer and ask for service department. ask them whether that engine has freeze plugs on the back of the block underneath the flywheel or ring gear. if not you may have a head gasket or heater hose leak which is dripping down through the bell housing presenting itself as coming via the oil pan gasket. there should be no water whatsoever in the oil pan and if there is you need to look around for a replacement used engine.

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.
