Sometimes a "no heat" issue is low coolant/water level...if none flows into the heater core, then no heat will be present.

If the hoses to and from the heater core are hot , and you say the heater core is hot , then the only answer is that the air duct that flows into or out of the heater core plenum ( housing ) is not opening.
Heater control on dash borad inoperative.
Not sure about 92 capri , some cars have a cable linkage , some work on vacume motors.
Try to find a haynes manual for your car , they will walk you through almost every step of anything you may ever want to do to your car.

You seem to know what you are doing , but I gotta ask ........the heater core you felt was up behind the dash inside the passenger compartment of the car right ?

SOURCE: replace heater core 1995 Mercury Villager

Unfortunately, this is one of the most complex and time consuming operations, short of changing the engine/transmission that can be done to the car.
The heater core is mounted in a box, inside the passenger compartment, almost dead center behind the dashboard and is mounted directly on the firewall to allow the hoses to go through. If you put your hand just above the accellerator pedal, and go toward the center console, you'll find the heater core box.
There is no way to remove the heater core from the engine compartment. In fact, other than draining the radiator and removing the hose clamps and a bolt or two, youll have little interaction with the engine compartment.
Begin by disabling the air bag system, by removing all power from the vehicle. Be SURE the air bags are disabled as they are extremely dangerous if they activate while you are working under the dash.
Next remove the entire instrument panel, and all the decorative plastic. To do this you may have to remove the steering wheel also. Be sure to label everything as you go. Then remove all the heater controls. Once done, you should be able to access the black heater box that the core rests in. Remove that, and if you have loosened the hoses and screws in the engine compartment, the heater core will come free and you can replace it.
For a much better and more detailed explanation of how to do this, I used the Haynes Repair Manual. (Note, Im not affiliated with them, they just had the best description of the procedure.)
I dont really recommend doing this yourself unless you are a very patient and reasonably accomplished mechanic. This will involve removal of all the dash, instruments and controls, and frankly, even when the dealer did this, the car is never quite the same again.
One other hint, after replacing the heater core, use a length of good heavy copper wire to wrap around one of the hose entry points (metal to metal contact) and then ground the core to the engine block or frame. This will help prevent the electrolysis that killed the core the in the first place.

After I bleed the system still I do ant have head in the rarer I have new heater core rear and new pipes sill I don't have heat , 2003 mpv mazda tk


Your first step is to make sure coolant is getting to the rear heater core. Pipes to core should be felt or measured with a thermometer to ensure hot coolant is even getting back there. Inlet and outlet pipes should be very hot and very close to same temperature. If they are then coolant flow is good and you have a problem with air temperature blend door not routing the airflow thru the hot heater core.

How do I replace the heater core?


most cars and trucks now have the a/c and heater core behind the dash - the dash has to be taken out to get to the heater core look to see where your heater core hoses goes thru the firewall - if it is directly behind the motor your heater core is on the other side of the firewall

How do I change my heater core in my 1996 ford ranger


The heater core is located in the heater box, under the passenger side of the dash. Most FORD heater boxes are snap-clipped together, and if you remove the rear panel from the heater box, you will see the heater core...it looks like a smaller radiator...twist the heater hose off of the heater core (x2) from the engine side and gently remove the heater core from under the dash. When replacing the new heater core, be very careful re-installing new hoses to the core...it is a fragile thin metal that can leak almost instantly if tweaked too roughly...replace all parts in reverse order of removal.

I bought a 99 tahoe four door 5.7 350. No heat. Previous owner bypassed heater core. Need to see how heater hoses attach.


Have you replaced the heater core? If not, most likely the reason the previous owner bypassed the heater core was because it leaked. I will be happy to send you photos of how the hoses attach but I will need your email address.

2002 nissan altima heater problem


have 2002 altima,blower works no heat at idle and very little heat when accelerating.I changed carbon cabin filter,made sure little gear under dash to temp knob wasnt broken,flushed and bled system.Nothing worked so checked hoses to heater core and found inlet hose was hot,outlet hose was not.So investigated this problem and came to conclusion heater core was clogged.An easy way to check is to get car to normal running temp. put on heater and blowers at full.Go under dash on passenger side where counsel meets firewall,this is where heater core core inlet and outlet aluminum tubbing go through firewall,you will be able to feel both tubes one closest to you is outlet, so if this one is not hot and and other is your heater core is clogged.I detached both inlet and outlet hoses to heater core from water control valve.Then I blasted water with waterhose and nozzle set at jet,first through outlet hose to blow gunk out,then through inlet hose until water runs clear.Reatach hoses fill and bled system.heater works great nice and hot!

Need to know where my Heater Core hoses hook up to on the engine? I see the Hoses but is there a seperate part that the hose connects to?


The best way to locate a heater core hose is to determine where the heater core is located. Many vehicles have the heater core inside the dash. Other vehicles, usually larger vans and trucks, will have a heater core box inside the engine compartment. Once you have determined where the heater core is located in your vehicle, that will allow you to easily locate a heater core hose. If the heater core is inside the dash, you'll need to examine the firewall for the hoses. If it is in a heater box, you'll need to look around the engine compartment for the box.




Heater cores located inside dashes can be very difficult and time consuming to replace. Depending on the layout of your engine compartment, it can also be difficult to locate a heater core hose. If there is very little clearance between the engine and the firewall, you may have difficulty finding the hoses. You might need to use a flashlight to look from the underside in some cases. You will typically be able to identify the heater hoses where they enter the firewall by looking for two two small diameter hoses that protrude into the engine compartment. You can then trace those hoses to their other ends, where they will typically connect to a thermostat housing, the radiator, or a t-connector.


Hope this helps.

1994 F-250 Heater Core


Answer for a 1995 F250:

Remove the glove-box door. Behind that is the heater core cover on the interior, passenger side of the firewall. Remove that cover and there is the heater core. Open the hood and look where the heater hoses enter the front right passenger area of the exterior side of the firewall. Disconnect the two heater hose clamps and you can then remove the heater core.

Finding the inlet and outlet hoses for heater core


You will find the heater hoses on the rear of the motor.This is on the drivers side just under the air cleaner tube that goes into the motor.They go from there into the firewall.Part of them are metal pipe and part rubber where they go into the vehicle.If your having problems with the vehicle not heating.Make sure the cooling system is not low.The other thing is this 3.4 engines are known for head gasket.Usually the rear head on the passengers side rear corner.You have to look from under the vehicle.Hope this has helped.Good luck.
