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

as long as the engine temperature is normal, i would suspect a clogged heater core, the dex-cool antifreeze is notorious for building up deposits in cooling system. have heater core flushed first to see if it makes any difference

SOURCE: my 2001 oldsmobile silhouette keeps over heating.

Hi!

I have and 98 Intrepid 3800 motor, and had same problem.

I tried a few things, but what finally worked was when I took the car for a complete cooling system flush, they opened the radiator and cleaned every single passage line, flushed motor and heater core,

It cost me about $100 but I havent had a problem since. I recommend you do the same.

There is a screw on the thermostat housing that is used to purge the air out of the cooling system. On your owner's manual are detailed instruccions of this procedure.

If helpful, click below. Good Luck

Where are heater core hoses in 2003 dodge grand caravan?


You will find them under the hood.
Do you know what the heater core is? About the size of a hard-back book, it is a small radiator with engine coolant passing through it. It is located inside the heater case under the dash.
There are two hoses, an inlet line and a return line. Both same size, about 1 inch in diameter. Both hoses come from the engine and go up to the firewall behind the engine. Both hoses connect to the heater core right at the firewall, so there are hose clamps on the end of the hoses.
You can remove and replace the heater hoses right there under the hood, pretty easy too. But if you need to replace the heater core, that comes out from under the dash. Often there is a lot of work to get to the core, as there is a loot in the way.

Where is the heater core located?


Inside of the heater box. If you follow the heater hoses to the firewall under the hood, the heater core is located inside of the cabin opposite the connections under the hood. Not an easy job to change.

Need to replace the heater core


This can be a real challenge. The heater core may be under the dashboard. Check under the hood where the heater hoses go into the cabin. If there are bolts there , you be lucky and it may be possible to chqnge it from the firewall side.

Blower Motor Location


Look under the hood on the fire wall where the heater hoses go into the interior ogf the car. The heater core is just inside under the dash. theree is no easy way to tak out the heater core. But it is done all the time.
Do that only if it's leaking and the carpet under the dash is wet. If not, try flushing the heater core .With the engine cold and the radiator empty, Take both hoses off that connect to the heater core. Insert some hoses to both the inlet and outlet so you can direct the water down and away from the engine. With a good stream of water pressure. Put the water hose into one of the inlets. And spray the water in until it comes out the other hose. Flush out everything that may be clogging the core.

Heater Coil is clogged


It may be the heater matrix. It` a small radiator just like the one under the hood.
The feed pipes can be found under the hood.
Remove them and flush it out with a garden hose before you attempt to replace it
