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.

RAIN leaks onto passenger side floor... definitely NOT the heater core or windshield.

Year make and model? Some Gm's have a rubber seal that mounts to the body under the windshield cowling. It falls off letting water in threw the air vent/ filter. Silicone it back on.

My 1997 ford ranger a/c dash vents won't blow

Vacuum supply starts on the drivers side of the engine. There is a vacuum line going into the brake vacuum assist from the manifold. branching off of that line is a double line that snakes under the intake manifold, behind the valve cover, along side the valve cover on the passenger side headed to the front of the engine. Then it curves to the right side of the engine. One set of hoses from this line goes to a valve control (red and green i think). The other line goes to the vacuum storage ball, it should be black. The vacuum circuit continues out of the ball in another black line that snakes into the firewall. It goes under the heater core black box and disappears under it. Now go into the passenger compartment and drop the glovebox. look to the back right you will see a black and a white vacuum line coming out of the firewall. The black line is your vacuum supply from the engine. It goes up to a little rubber manifold. disconnect the lines coming from the dash switch and check for vacuum on the manifold where the black line is going in. The white line controls the cabin air intake under the glovebox and the thermostat shutoff under the hood. It should only have vacuum when the switch is in a certian position, AC probly. The other three lines coming off the rubber manifold snake behind the dash vent door assemble and come out near the gas peddle. The red one controls the dash vent. apply vacuum to the red hose and see if the vents go to the center dash position/AC. The yellow and blue? ones control the floor vent control near the gas peddle. yellow gives you half floor and half defrost. blue gives you all floor. you can use a small vacuum line to connect the black vacuum supply to each individual line on the manifold and check the function of each vacuum control assembly individually. I hope this helps. On my truck each control unit works fine when i apply vacuum to them individually but when I hook the dash switch up to the rubber manifold it goes to defrost. I tried changing the dash switch and the lines running from the switch to the rubber manifold and the vacuum ball under the hood, nothing works. I suspect I may have leak i just haven't found yet. next step is to get a vacuum gage and start checking the amount of vacuum i am getting at each vacuum line. I'm sure it is supposed to be getting a specific amount of vacuum and will not work if the vacuum drops below a certian level due to a leak in a line somewhere? God bless.

When it rains puddles of water on the passenger side floorboards mostly in the back not coming from sunroof and theres a crack in my windshield thought it might be that but the dashboard is never wet so...

The cowl drains could be clogged. Trace from the opening at the base of the windshield down to door hinges and look for debris such as leaves in the opening behind the hinges. You may have to use a coat hanger as a special tool to remove the debris.

04 trailblazer AC leaks

Rather than pay the dealer $350+ to fix this, I found the "L" shaped drain hose behind and interior to the front passenger tire (I let the car idle with the AC on and waited for a drip. On my back on groud I reached in and found the drain line and it came off i my hand and about 4 oz of water and some decayed matter floowed out. I reaced back in and found the hole to which the L line was attached. It was a rubber fitting on the end of a metal pipe. The fitting came off easily and then about 8 oz of water flowed out (carpet had been soaked for two days). I reattached the L drain line and noticed that inside the fitting was about 1/4 tsp of "mulch" - decayed leaves, pollen, etc. Reattacted the fitting and water now flows freely out the drain. And yes, its a very high humidity area - Houston, TX. And if you live anywhere near here you know about the intense yearly dispersion of Pine tree pollen. I thisnk that accelerates the blockage. Happen about every 2 years. (Third time for me. First two I let the dealer over charge me for this effort. BE SAFE WORKING UNDER YOUR CAR!

Windshield washer fluid hose is leaking behind front right wheel

I had the same problem. Reservoir would drain for no reason and I later found that the water was soaking the passenger side carpet and filling the wire channel under the doors. Tracked the problem to a barbed fitting behind the passenger side kick panel, just below the dash. The fitting connects the tubing coming through the firewall from the reservoir to the rear wiper/washer. The hose had come loose from the fitting (possibly due to freezing). I re-installed the tubing onto the the fitting and it has been fine ever since.
