2004 territory has a water leak above the transmission Its coming from a small house from inside the car an the heater vents have also leaked water into the on the floor on the drivers side?


I would say clean out the hose first. Should any way, they do clog up. But you may have a bad heater core. Costly. You can bypass it. Find the 2 hose going into the fire wall and connect them together, till you can get it fixed, winter time is cold.

Where is the heater core located on 99 Ford escort ZX2?


Typically you will find the heater core sits inside the dash just inside the fire wall of the engine compartment, from the engine bay you can follow the water lines from the cooling system and water pump that go back to the fire wall and through to the heater core, find those to hoses together and the heater core is on the other side under the dash, usually under passenger side under dash behind the heater box, they are usually labor intensive to pull, and some require pulling the dash partly off etc.

My 1996 Cadillac Sedan Deville heater blows cool air and engine is running at normal temps. It never seems to get up to temperature.


If you are not the original owner, the previous owner may have bypassed the heater core. The heater core is like a small radiator that has hot water running through it from your motor. It is inside of your dash board, near your a/c and heater controls. That is how yur car gets hot air. The air runs through the heater core making it hot. Bypassing it is a cheap and quick fix for a leaking heater core. When they get a leak, they leak all inside the car down to the floor board. Check under the hood along the fire wall. If it is bypassed, you will see two hoses spliced together. One will be bigger that the other slightly. If this is your problem, you are more thatn likely need to replace your heater core

Describe how to bypass a heater core in a 97 Dodge Dakota plz.


Easiest way to bypass a heater core is to disconnect both inlet and outlet hoses at the engine firewall. Install a right angle hose coupling in each hose. Then install a straight piece of hose to connect the two hoses.

I cant afford to fix heater core at this time so how do i identify hoses to bypass

Here is a link for you if you want to replace the heater core your self with common tools. As for the heater hose, you should see two small radiator hose going to the fire wall. You can disconnect the hose from the fire wall and connect them together, this will by pass the heater core till you replace the bad core. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to know your expedition is running 100% again.

How do you bypass the heater core on a 1989 Chev. Camaro 5.0


take the inlet hose to the heater core and connect it with the outlet hose on the heater core, thus creating a by-pass. you may be able to follow the hoses back to the aterpump and engine block and make a shorter run of it.
