How do you remove the quick connect fittng on 97 expidition heater hose?

Parts stores sell an inexpensive little piece called a quick connect fitting tool. It slips inside the quick connect fitting and releases it so you can pull it apart. If you tell them at the store it is for a heater hose fitting for Expeditions, they should have the right sized one in stock. The quick connect fittings have many sizes and applications.

If the original y-fitting is ok. Just get yourself a piece of heater hose. The auto store may have heater hose on a roll, You may need to tell them the ID and how long, they just cut a length for you and you use hose clamp. I'm not sure what you bought/an assembly? Maybe you can take it back and just get a piece of hose? Of course, I can't see anything from here?
I did find this picture.

Thanxs....i wanna by pass the heater....i can live without cabin heat but not my car

Locate the two heater hoses where they connect to the fittings at the firewall. Disconnect then and connect them together with a suitable hose connector (probably about 5/8") and clamps, and that is it. Do it when the car is cold and if you are quick and have everything to hand you will not loose too much coolant.

2002 Yukon 5.3L Heater core hose quick connect leaking. The quick connect confused mess of plastic lego parts is leaking right where it push locks onto the core fitting coming out of the firewall. It's...

Actually, those connectors were a mistake, courtesy of General Motors. A simple fix is to get rid of the plastic connector. Ok....where your two pipes come out of the heater core at the firewall...sometimes they are so brittle, they will come out with relative ease. Sometimes you need to break them off in pieces, so that all you have is metal pipe sticking out. That stub out is 3/4in. if memory serves. Which ever size it is, measure it and go to Home depot or your hardware store, plumbing section. Get a brass nipple. Say its 3/4s....get the nipple with threads on one end, smooth pipe on the other. The whole thing is about three inches long. believe it or not, that nipple will thread it self into your metal stub out coming out of your heater core like it was made for it. If it makes you feel better, swab your threads with water-pump RTV silicone gasket maker, or equivalent, then, with your water-pump pliers, line it up square, and thread it in slowly. It will fit like a glove! This retro-fit is so popular, a lot of auto parts stores actually keep these "nipples" behind the counter for just such an occasion. I did the same thing on a 1999 1/2 chevy 4x4. That was 8 years ago....and its still in there today.


Try to post back and let me know If I helped you solve your problem. It will help me with my rating....! Thanks

I am putting refrigerant in my 05 freestar van. which port do i put it in?

The low side port. If you have the proper quick connect charging hose, it will only fit the low side fitting. The high side fitting is larger & wont fit the quick connect fitting on the hose.

Where does the hater hose hook to the back of the motor when changing the hose because of a leaking or weak connection to the heater core

If you have a 3.1L the heater pipe connection on the intake is a quick disconnect made of pot metal and they crack at the fitting. The other line is tin and connects close to the same place.

No heat thermostat isopening and closing andfanis working sometimes you get a little barley warm air then it goes back to cold air also ck. eng. light is on

Ck Eng light probably not related.
The heater core is clogged. A bottle of cooling system "quick flush" may be all you need ($6 AutoZone).
There is also a complete flush system, but requires that you splice into the heater hose (I installed it on my Taurus - works great!).

By the way, there is a heater core bypass hose. It is connected to the two heater core hoses near the firewall. You may want to remove the two "Tee" fittings and use a 5/8" hose splicer so that the flush passes through the heater core at full force. Put the Tee's back in place after the flush.

If you remove the tee fittings and don't flush, the heater will work, but the core may eventually start leaking.
