You need to connect the inlet hose and the outlet hose going to the heater core together. The hose will enter on the passenger side at the firewall. If you look carefully you should be able to find them.

If you cap off the hoses then you will over heat the truck and cause severe damage to it,if you want to bypass the heater core the look for the two hoses that enter the truck on the passenger side of the fire wall,loosen the clamps and remove the hoses then insert a small pipe to go into one hose **** it down and then install the other hose on the exposed end of the pipe and clamp it down this will let water circulate through the cooling system,but you will not have any heat in the cab

I need to bypass my heater coil as my aircon is leaking 2003 kia pregio any photos?


Im not quite sure what bypassing heater coil has to do with aircon leak, unless you mean there's coolant leaking from under dash, if coolant is leaking, remove hoses at firewall and follow them back to engine, you can use one of them to bridge from one to the other. Or put a connector between the hoses

2003 ford windstar, my heater hose is leaking at the connection to iron pipe, I need a diagram to figure out how to fix


Most likely while you are in there it's time to replace the hose. Saves having to go back if it starts leaking on the other end which is highly likely given the age. There should be a return heater hose, it is probably in similar condition. Diagram may be available via google. Youtube may show you how to. A very bright led flash light will allow you to see and trace the heater hose. You'll need to drain the radiator save the antifreze if new. Replace if old. Any other cooling system hoses need to be replaced? How is the water pump. It's not the leak is it? Otherwise Library probably has repair manual, or may be time to invest in repair manual. Lightly used may be available on Ebay and others. New hoses are cheap insurance against possible failure.

I bought a 99 tahoe four door 5.7 350. No heat. Previous owner bypassed heater core. Need to see how heater hoses attach.


Have you replaced the heater core? If not, most likely the reason the previous owner bypassed the heater core was because it leaked. I will be happy to send you photos of how the hoses attach but I will need your email address.

Heater coil has bad leak,fogs up window,leaks in floor,i just want to know how to find hoses and connect them,have to go to work in morning,need temporary fix


There will be 2 hoses going through the firewall. Follow them to the motor, and pick one that will be long enough to disconnect from the firewall, and then hook it to where the other hose is on the engine. You cannot block the flow, but you can bypass the heater core.

Floor board is wet on driver side front and rear


Check the weatherstripping around the door. Also look under the dash board for signs of water leaking from the firewall. If your weatherstripping isn't damaged anywhere then make sure the liquid doesn't smell like antifreeze. If it does then you've busted the heater coil. Do not drive the car if this is the case. Your coolant will all leak into the car and it will overheat. Replacing a heater coil tend to be a huge pain in the **** and if you can pay someone else to do it by all means do. The heater coil can be bypassed by connecting the water inlet hose to the outlet hose where they go into the firewall. This is a crutch but your car will run fine until you can get the heater coil replaced. A mechanic will do the bypass for you pretty cheaply. It only takes 5 minutes.

Need to replace heater raidator under dash.anyone done one


The heater "coil" almost always requires removal of the entire dashboard and it's not much fun. You shouldn't even think about it without at least a Chilton's (or other) manual unless you're pretty used to disassembling and reassembling complex components. If it's leaking antifreeze, you can bypass the heater for now (brrrr) by splicing the heater coil's inlet and outlet hoses together. In the engine compartment look for two hoses, same sized, that are leading into your firewall. They'll be right next to each other, usually one above, rather than beside the other. They'll be the only hoses with anti freeze that attach to the firewall. Pull both hoses from the firewall and insert a splice, connecting these hoses. Secure with hose clamps. This will seal the coolant system and bypass the heater. The car will be perfectly safe to drive now until you replace the heater coil.
