How to back flush a heater core


On the fire wall of the engine compartment you will find 2 rubber hoses connected to 2 Brass or Aluminum pipes that stick out of the engine firewall, loosen the clamps and remove those hoses, one hose and pipe is smaller than the other hose and pipe, force water with a garden hose through the smaller pipe to "backflush the heater core. Below is a picture of the core and the pipes that come out in the engine compartment to give you an idea what to look for, I have also provided a picture of the heater hoses from the engine.

I changed radiator,thermostat, water pump,and replaced a freeze plug in back of engine and still not getting heat?


it possible your heater core may be clogged. the heater core is mounted on the fire wall inside the vehicle. you can remove the two hoses going through the fire wall and use a water hose to determine whether it is clogged or not

My truck wont blow out any hot air, just cold. i put a new radiator and thermostat in it. it is full of anti freeze


Try removing the Heater hoses from heater tubes(be careful not to break heater tubes off) then back flush heater core with garden hose(Don't use a lot of pressure). Jell from antifreeze builds up in the heater core and blocks the coolant flow. If it is easier, remove the heater hoses from the engine, that is safer. Back flush the heater from the hoses. To Back Flush (The hose coming from the water pump is the inlet)(Hose going to Manifold is outlet) Back flush outlet hose! To much water pressure may cause damage to heater core!!!! Do Not ues AIR!!!!

I cant afford to fix heater core at this time so how do i identify hoses to bypass


http://www.chiltonlibrary.com/ContentViewer/CVFrameset.aspx
Here is a link for you if you want to replace the heater core your self with common tools. As for the heater hose, you should see two small radiator hose going to the fire wall. You can disconnect the hose from the fire wall and connect them together, this will by pass the heater core till you replace the bad core. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to know your expedition is running 100% again.

How do you bypass the heater core on a 1989 Chev. Camaro 5.0


take the inlet hose to the heater core and connect it with the outlet hose on the heater core, thus creating a by-pass. you may be able to follow the hoses back to the aterpump and engine block and make a shorter run of it.

Coolent leak on fire wall in engine compartment on pasnger side


Hi , if you lift up your passenger side floor carpet and check underneath if there any coolant. If it`s dry you know the leak is in the engine bay ,if it`s wet could be either inside or outside of the firewall. In the engine bay check the hose clamps on both side of the hose if you can tight them or if one a those spring clamps try to reposition them. If you have hose clamp right at the firewall then you can easily change the hoses otherwise you have to access it from under or worst case behind the dash. Hope that helps.
