Only reason a heater hose will blow off is it was on loose or you were over heating. Do not do a coolant flush until after you determine its ok now,

How to flush heater core


Simple. You find the heater hoses feeding the heater core. Typically they are a smaller diameter then radiator hoses and they both run to the firewall. You will need to determine which one feeds the heater core ...the input hose. Once you know that ...check a Taurus owners forum or Google it ...then run your water through the heater core from the output side. The idea is to back flush the core in the hopes you knock loose the crud with high pressure water flow.

This heater core flush is usually done in conjunction with flushing the entire cooling system. Do the cooling system flush first then the heater core. When you do the system flush, use some flush agent ...Prestone makes it. If the directions say use one bottle, use two. The stuff is generally not all that potent and designed not to contaminate the ground water. Which means it's fairly lame stuff. Use two bottles.

1997 ford Taurus 3.0 6cyl. Has not heat


Empty cooling system and reverse flush the heater core with water hose till water comes out clear. Then reverse procedure till water is clear. Fill system with water and turn car on, while car is running open drain plug and continue to keep radiator full while draining it at the same time turn on your heater with heat on high and blower on high When water is clear flush system and wait for engine to cool down. Refill with antifreeze and turn engine on, check for leaks and to see if you have heat. If still no heat change heat core.Let me know how you make out.

Why is my 1998 ford contour over heating and my heater no longer works


Radiator is corroded, plugged up due to age. Same with the heater core. You door vents might not be working, which could also result in a no heat situation.

I have a 2002 ford taurus and the heater isnt working all that well and i was wondering what things i should check


The heater core is under the dash.
If the engine is reaching normal temp, and both heater hoses are hot, you may have a problem with a blend door under the dash.

Getting no heat in 2001 ford taurus. Changed thermostat 3 times over a period of time. Flushed radiator plus had the heater core back flushed twice. After the 1st back flush, we had heat for a mile. temp...


If both heater hoses are getting hot, the problem could be a stuck blend door under the dash.
If only one hose is getting hot, there is a blockage in the coolant flow somewhere.

Can you use a prestone flush and fill kit without opening the radiator drain **** or removing hoses?


No, the flush kit is mounted on the heater hose and you need to drain the system. Removing the lower radiator hose and termostat is the best method for flushing draining the coolant system.

I want to change the antrfreeze in the raditor.


Not only the cap, but you have to find the drain. They are usually put in the most difficult places. After ten years consider having your system flushed, it'll be good for your radiator. Take the car to a jiffy-lube type place and they will change your oil for you too. The Taurus is a good car, treat it right and it will give you good service.
