My ford 1997 F-150 4.6L has a antifreeze smell in the cab when it is running, think it might be the heatercore?


yes it sounds like it might be the heater core when your heater core goes bad it leaks and seeing that it is in the cab it will have that smell usually when it leaks your floors will be wet from the leak. bypass the heater core unitl you can get it fixed to prevent any electrical problems

How to inestol heater core for 1997 ford windstar 3.0


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.

Heater core


email me at fordtech2005@gmail.com and I will be happy to email you pictures on how to do it. the flat rate labor time to do this repair is 7.5 hours which basically means that the whole dash must come out, also you will need to disconnect your a/c system to remove heater core.

Replace heater core 97 ford f 150


Oh, it's a big pain, you have to remove the entire dash. Get yourself a Chilton / Haynes manual (buy one or borrow one from the library). Also take a look at this thread about this exact topic - http://www.fordf150.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=59067
