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.
For a video showing the basics of replacing heater cores go here.
Thank you for using FixYa.

95 cutlass supreme leaking coolant from what looks like firewall overflow plus steams upwindshield


Your heater core has gone bad and needs to be replaced, If you go to Auto Zone you can pick up a new heater core and they will have the step by step instructions to doing the job yourself. If your lucky, may be the radiator hose to the heater core has failed at the cores pipes and it's only the hose that needs to be replaced but thinking not. You can get by pass the heater core for now so you can still get around till you pick up the new Heater core. Follow the two hose that goes to the fire wall and disconnect both of them from the pipe from the firewall, then with a pipe and two clamps, connect the two hose together and that's how you by pass the heater core. Good luck friend and hope this helps.
