We call this a heater core, and here is how it is replaced. No need to drain the cooling system, just undo the heater core hoses at the firewall under the hood then pull glove box inset, undo bolts for access cover that is over heater core behind the glove box insert, remove cover, remove old core, put new core in, reinstall cover, reinstall glove box, done. I did these in 45 minutes at the Ford dealer I worked at.

I pressure washed my f-250 today including the engine to remove salt and dirt from plowing and shortly after it went into limp mode and subsequently stalled and will not start, I have a heater running...

you have a wet coil pack possibly. use hair dryer to dry the engine coil pack. if you're not familiar with coil packs, they replaced the old type distributors. water has built up in coil pack or you've blown off a spark plug wire from coil pack while pressure washing engine.

Where do the heater core hoses attach to engine on an 1988 f-250 with air

If it is necessary to remove the heater assembly, the cooling system must be drained before removing the heater core.
When a heater core leaks, a new heater core is installed or the old one repaired.
Heater Housing
  • The heater housing is usually under the dash and must be removed to gain access to the heater core.
  • Procedures for replacing the heater core vary with the year, make, and model of car. It threfore necessary to consult the manufacturer's repair manuals for the proper procedure for replacement.
f74-01.gif The heater housing is disassembled to get to the heater core. Heater Core
  • Remove the access panels(s) or the split heater/air conditioning case to gain acess to the heater core.
  • Remove the heater coolant hoses.
  • Remove the cable and/or vacuum control lines (if equipped).
  • Remove the heater core securing brackets and/or clamps.
  • Lift the core from the case. Do not use force. Take care not to damage the fins of the heater core when removing.
  • To reinstall the heater core, reverse the removal steps.
When the heater core leaks and must be repaired or replaced, it is a very difficult and time-consuming job primarily because of the core's location deep within the firewall of the car. For this reason always leak test a replacement heater core before installation.
