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.

I have a 2002 Ford Escort ZX2. It only blows cold air when the heater is turned on. I am assuming since it is blowing air, it must be something with the heater core. I hear this is a pretty big job and...


Low coolant will cause this issue as well. You can check the heater core by letting the engine warm up and then feel the hoses going into the heater core to see if they are hot. If they are both hot, then you have circulation to the core. Another cause, besides low coolant, could be the trap door that shunts air from the core to the vents could be stuck. If you do have to replace the core, you have to remove the dash from the car to do so.

Location of the airbag sensor and control module on ford escort zx2


There is no separate sensor. The airbag module has an inertia sensor that determines if the airbag is deployed. The module is in the center of the dash area, mounted to the floor. You'll have to look behind the heater core box to see it.

If bolts won't come out and you've taken the nuts off, Then they are stiuds.Locate the heater hoses where they enter the firewall. The heater core is right on the other side of firewall. Which you probably already know. Good luck

2000 ford escort therostat not working right


Replace the thermostat first. Make sure the antifreeze level is full. Bleed the system. most car's have a bleeder valve located at the thermostat housing outlet.Drain the coolant level only to below the thermostat where it won't leak when removing the housing and thermostat. If it's the heater core it is located under the dash where the 2 heater hoses enter the cab from the engine compartment.
