You will need a special tool to get in and behind the fitting which will release the fitting from the tube.I would go to your auto parts store and see if they have the correct tool for your job.

Truck doesn't heat while idling

Could be low on antifreeze. The heater core is the highest spot in the cooling system and it may develop an air pocket. Another possibility is the thermostat is stuck partially open and doesn't let the engine warm correctly, watch your temp gauge on the dash and see if it comes up to the middle like it should while idling. If it doesn't, it may need replacement.

2003 mercury sable blows cool air when heater is turned on.

Most likely it is a clogged heater core. Have your heater core reverse flushed or your blend door is stuck open.

Male fitting on heater core inlet broke off in hose

RKmastertech is incorrect. That plastic fitting is seperate from the aluminum heater core and can be removed by means of a special quick disconnect tool, like OTC 6046. Rock auto has the fitting for $5 plus shipping, just for a reference.

My heater on my 2001 mercury sable isn't working.. It will blow warm air for about 2 minutes and then goes cold again

I had the same problem with my sable. You need a heater blend door. The one on your car is stuck and wore out. The replacement part costs about fifty-two dollars, labor will be more like about one hundred dollars if you take it to a dealership.good Luck
