Where does the hoses go on the heater control valve


The hose from the water pump should be connected to the heater control valve. The other hose goes to the return from the heater core.

1991 corsica coolant leaking out of by firewall


Let's hope the first fix is the right one!
You should have two heater hoses running from the engine to the heater core, which you cannot see under the hood.
Typically, the hoses are about 1 & 1/4 inch diameter, and black.
That part ( the heater core) is inside, under the dashboard, sort of behind the glove box.
The heater core is just on the other side of the firewall from the two hoses, which are usually "together" (means they are about an inch apart) where the hoses attach to the heater core through the firewall.
If the problem is coolant ( you can tell by the color and/or taste), you likely have a heater hose that is old and cracked and leaking.
Take a flashlight and look carefully, you should see sign of wetness around the ends of the heater hoses and maybe on the firewall.
Those hoses usually last about 10 years before needing replacement.
If you find one leaking, you should replace both of them, unless the other one has been changed recently.
If you change them, you'll need to drain the radiator coolant and the hoses and collect the coolant for reuse or disposal.
I would also put on new stainless-steel band clamps.
Remember when you put it all back together, you will need to "burp" the air out by running the engine with the heater on full for about 10 minutes at a medium speed to get the water pump to pump accumulated air out.

I have a 2001 ford expedition my front heater core was leaking so i by-passed it. now its the rear heater core can someone please tell me how to by-pass it to. please


Greetings,
Just remove the heater hoses where they go in to the firewall, and connect them together with a short piece of copper pipe and a couple heater hose clamps. Or, remove the hose that goes from the water pump to the firewall completely, then remove the firewall end of the other hose and connect it directly to the water pump. If the relative sizes of the two heater hoses make this impossible, then revert back to my first suggestion.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My 2003 is not getting hot air i changed the heater hoses and put more antifreeze in and it still wont get hot air


One of two things: 1)Heater core may be plugged - on most vehicles you can switch the heater hoses around to reverse the flow of water to try to remove the blockage. This will be a temporary fix however because the foreign material will be in the coolant system and will eventually plug the core again. If you try this and it helps I would suggest flushing the coolant system to remove any loose material. 2)Failed water pump - Sometimes the impeller on the water pump gets corroded to the point where it will not move the coolant correctly. The solution for this is to change the pump. You can do some troubleshooting buy A)draining enough coolant from the system to drop the level below the upper of the two heater hoses B)remove the upper heater hose on the engine end and position the open end higher than the engine, allow coolant to drain to the point where it naturally stops C)Have a friend start the vehicle breifly and see if coolant flows from either the hose or the fittting it was connected to. If coolant flows from the hose, the core is not plugged. If coolant flows from the fitting, the water pump is working. If coolant doesn't flow at all, try switching the ends on the core if possible and repeat test. If the coolant still doesn't flow, you probably need a water pump.

There is a leakinside the passenger compartment in the heater core housing.

Could be the heater core or a hose connection to the core.
The coolant is exiting to the ground outside through the water drain tube attached to the bottom of the heater housing (normally, this drain tube will drain water that was condensed by the A/C).

A quick repair, if you don't need the heater for now:
Under the hood, re-route the heater hoses by connecting each hose end to each other with a 5/8 inch diameter hose connector (like splicing a garden hose).

Eventually, the heater core will need to be replaced.

How to replace


  1. Measure the hose while it is still attached
  2. Go to an Auto parts store and buy that length plus a few inches. Tell them you need HEATER HOSE
  3. Unless you are in a warm climate RIGHT NOW, buy some coolant.
  4. Purchase the band clamps for it or the same type that are on it.
  5. Disconnect the water pump end of the hose and quickly replace it with the new one. HOLD that disconnected end UP.
  6. Slide the new clamp over the non-connected end of the new hose down to the water pump.
  7. Tighten that end.
  8. Remove the opposite end of the OLD hose from the heater core.
  9. Slide the other clamp on the new hose then connect to the heater core.
  10. Tighten that end. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN THE HEATER CORE END!!!!! You will crush that tube!!!!
  11. Check the radiator fuild level.
  12. Refill as required.
