The heater core inlet and outlet com out of the fire wall on the drives side of the battery after the car cools you can connect a garden hose to one side an and another hose to the other side and flush it out. the hoses have a corragated plastic cover over them that is split in the back it should just pull off, the hoses are connected with pressure clamps squeeze them and pull them down then pull hoses off. flush the system both ways good luck

How do I replace the water hose outlet on the fire wall of a 2004 kia sorento


You mean the brass or metal heater core outlet? If that is leaking and not the heater hose, you will need to replace the heater core. It is like a small radiator with coolant running through it. Find a repair manual for the kia to see the heater core replacement procedure. Some are easy, and some require removing the dash to replace the heater core- a pretty time consuming job.

Steam slowly coming out of passenger side vent.Smells like antifreeze.dont see nothing leaking.If heating core how hard to replace.


The heater core is located behind the dashboard, on the passenger side. Steam from the vent and an antifreeze smell is a decimate sign that the heater core is leaking and needs replacement.
The procedure for removal and installation varies depending on your make and model, your profile says only "ford cars and trucks" so I can't say off the top of my head if your vehicle is an easy job or a hard one.
A simple instalation would involve removing only an access panel under the dash and maybe the glove box door. Difficult ones can require removal of the entire dashboard.
Look through a repair manual for your make and model (available at almost any parts store) to see how your heater core is accessed and decide if you can do the job yourself. Good luck.

How to remove the heater core


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.

Where can i find the heater core on a taurus 96 lx?


hi, the heater core is behind the center console behind the dash board ill warn you now its not easy to get to and it is a big job just to change the part your getting to its going to take a whole days hard work just to get to see the heater matrix as this is what i think your going on about.

It isnt easy to explain all the work involved so it would be a lot easier to get a repair manual as their is a hell of a lot of work involved just to get to it and its even harder getting all the pieces put back together so the manual will give you alot of help as its just to hard to get to just by removing the parts you can see due to the fact their are screws that you cant see.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Bad heater core how do I replacxe it


No one, except someone who has replaced one on this exact same vehicle can tell you. Replacing the heater core is the easy part. Getting to the heater core is the hard part. Basically you just have to remove enough parts to allow access to the core. Take photos as you go along so as not to get confused when you reverse the procedure. This is a very labour intensive repair and for that reason it is a very costly repair. Good luck.
