How to fix antifreeze leak where collant lines connect to rear heater core on 2007 ford explorer


First you have to determine if this is the hose or the connection to the heater core itself. This can be difficult to do. You should get a pressure testing machine for automotive cooling systems and use it. When you pressurize the system you can see where the leak is exactly. If it is hoses that are bad you can replace them. If it is the pipe that connects to the core (the nipple) then you need the whole core. When you replace the items that are bad you need to use permatex on the connection to be sure it wont leak again.

2000 3.8 mustang waterpump leaks at pipe that goes to heater core


That's the return pipe to the pump from the heeater core.It's leaking at the pump? Is it leaking
from the hose that's clamped on,do you think? That is probably a pressed fitiing into the pump
and if it is leaking around the fitting, and the pump has over 30,000 miles on it, I'd just bite the bullet and replace the pump.
I know.....on a 3.8 it isn't the easiest job. (:^) don-ohio

Im leaking antifreeze from a pipe by the firewall what is that pipe is call, u have one side going to the water pump, and the other side going to the thermostate


this should be the heater core,is the pipe itsself bad or is it just the hose needing replaced?does heat work,is the passengers floorboard wet with coolant?could be the hose bad or the heater core bad,some cars have whats called a heater control valve right there at the firewall that the hoses hook up to,it could be bad,if hoses just hook up to two pipes sticking out of firewall,check hoses first,then look in passengers floor to see if its wet,heater core is inexspensive but costly to have replaced.

Coolant leaking from a small pipe or hose attached on firewall what is the problem?


That hose is connected to your heater core. Either the hose or the actual heater core is leaking and needs to be replaced.

97 ford f150 4.6 the pipe that gos to heater core hose is leaking. is this pipe pressed in? thanks


The inlet/outlet pipes (tubing) is an integral part of the heater core. If the actual core is leaking, you 'll need to remove and replace or repair the heater core. Be sure it's not the hose that is failing ... alot easier and cheaper to change out a hose and clamps...

Water leaking out engine near front fire wall


Sounds like one of the connections to the heater core are leaking. Should be hoses connecting to the metal heater core pipes. The heater core is on the inside of the car with metal pipes going through the firewall to heater hoses.

  2. Open the instrument panel glove compartment. Push in on the sides of the compartment to release it, allowing access to the heater core.
The heater core can be damaged if too much force is applied to the heater core pipes during hose removal.
  1. Remove the heater module screws and remove the heater module assembly cover. For vehicles equipped with A/C, remove the air conditioning evaporator temperature sensor assembly from the heater and A/C cover.
  2. Remove the heater core screw and clamp.
  3. Remove the hose pipe clamp screw and the hose pipe clamp. Clamp off the heater hoses.
