2002 Dodge Durango barely any heat in front and none at all in rear system Replaced thermostat already still not any better Thinking about a pressurized flush or heater core replacement any ideas on best...


Do a reverse flush on the hoses leading to the heater core. under the hood there are 2 hoses side by side on the fire wall, find the other ends and detach them, get a garden hose and back wash the core in reverse, so you will want to blow water threw the right hose first!
as for no heat in the rear well that's different it has a separate heater core, but under the hood again there is a small electric pump that helps feed the rear heater. good luck.

2002 Expedition heating


have you checked the coolant level? also the hoses after the engine has been running for a while should be more than warm, they should be hot. the in hose should be so hot you can not hold on to it for long.

you may have a plugged heater core, try removing hoses to front and rear units and use a water hose to flush, do this good, start withfront one stick hose on one hose and see what comes out the other end of the core, then which to other end of the core, you may need a small hose about 3ft to slide onto heater core end to then put hose nozzle on the other end of small hose then hit handle to force water through. do this to both cores.

I have a 2001 ford expedition my front heater core was leaking so i by-passed it. now its the rear heater core can someone please tell me how to by-pass it to. please


Greetings,
Just remove the heater hoses where they go in to the firewall, and connect them together with a short piece of copper pipe and a couple heater hose clamps. Or, remove the hose that goes from the water pump to the firewall completely, then remove the firewall end of the other hose and connect it directly to the water pump. If the relative sizes of the two heater hoses make this impossible, then revert back to my first suggestion.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Coolant line under intake is leaking 95 town car


95 Lincoln town car coolant leak under intake SOLUTION EASY

Ok this is a 4" piece of hose leaking on a tube that runs under the intake manifold and fastens to the rear of the engine with 2 small bolts that are very hard to get to. The heater core hooks up to this tube with a 5/8 hose that's 3/4 on the other end going into the heatrer core.
Solution:
remove alternator
see clamp on hose?
remove it.
If you can't remove it, clamp vice grips on it and take a steak knife and cut through the hose towards the rear of the engine. Now with large screw driver pry the hose and clamp off the nub on the rear of the water pump housing. You may have to move the tube and remaining hose out of the way first. Just stick your hands in there and force it out of the way. Now you have a clean nub to hook a 5/8 bypass hose to. Here's where you get it. Go back to the heater core and and remove the hose that connects to this tube that runs under the intake. Just cut it where it hooks to the tube and remove it carefully from the heater core because this is now your needed bypass hose. Now with a couple feet of 3/4 hose and a coupler you have all you need to reroute this water outlet around the engine to the heater core. Take your hose you cut from the other end of the tube and removed from the heater core and and fasten it to the nub on water pump housing use new screw type stainless Steel clamps. You have to take this one apart to put it on. Stick a 3/4 coupler into the other end and route a long section of 3/4 hose under alternator to the heater core using SS clamps where needed. job done... Just leave the old tube where it is under the intake manifold......Thank you Very Much

Rear heater line is gone in van. How can I cap this line? The antifreeze runs right out the line as I put it in the rad. The rear heater is in the off position.


You'll have to rejoin or replace the rear heater core line that leads to the rear from the front if it's leaking like described.

One might be able to use a section of rubber hose with clamps, if the two ends are flared with a tool, hoping that the pressure won't make it leak at these two joints.

Or, as suggested in the question, one might cap the line, disabling the rear heater. Check with your local auto parts store for a rubber cap that can block the end. Maybe try a place like Lowe's which stocks a wide variety of plastic, rubber, and metal plumbing supplies that might be helpful.

Replace heater core


    A heater core transfers heat from a 1994 Ford Ranger's engine to the passenger compartment by running hot radiator coolant through a serpentine of tubing. Air blows past the hot fins of the heater core and into the truck cab.

    The hoses running to and from the heater core must be removed from the engine compartment, but the core itself is accessed from inside the passenger compartment, on the driver's side next to the center console.

    1. Turn off the engine, open the hood and remove the battery cable from the negative terminal. Make sure the engine is cool.

    2. Attach a 3/8-inch interior diameter hose to the drain outlet on the bottom rear corner of the radiator on the driver's side, and place the bottom end in a resealable plastic container. Turn the drain valve (located above the drain outlet) counterclockwise with a pair of pliers. Drain the engine coolant into the resealable container, then close the valve by turning it clockwise. Remove the hose from the outlet.

    3. Loosen the hose clamps on the radiator hoses where they attach to the heater core on the firewall. Remove the hoses.

    4. Unscrew the screws holding the underdash cover in place on the driver's side of the passenger compartment. Remove the underdash cover.

    5. Unscrew the four screws on the cylindrical heater core access cover and remove it. Remove the heater core by pulling it down and toward the rear of the vehicle. Replace the unit with a new heater core.

    6. Reinstall the heater core access cover and screw in the retaining screws. Replace the underdash cover and screw it into place.

    7. Replace the radiator hoses on the heater core in the engine compartment. Tighten the hose clamps. Add coolant until the level is between the minimum and maximum marks on the reservoir.

    8. Replace the battery cable and start the engine. Check the system for leaks.

How do you bypass a heater core on the 2000 Chevy Venture. It has a rear and a front heater core with a 3 way T outlet connecting several hoses and more than two hoses that go into the firewall since it...


Yes it can be done. look at your engine on it there will be two heater hoses coming from the engine to the heater, disconnect those two heater hoses at engine, with heater hose and two hose clamps, get the hose and clamp first at auto parts, install one end and the other end of same hose, where you disconnected the heater hoses from the engine, you have just by-pass the heater, hope this was very helpful.

Rear heater core line leaking, can I fix w/ rubber hose and clamps? The leak is right below drivers side door. There are four lines that run to rear heater core but only one is leaking.


yeah hose and clamps are the cheap easy way to go there, or if your lucky, the leak is right at the spot where the hose meets the metal and you can just cut the end off and put it back with the old clamp

We need to install a new rear heater hose on our van and are not sure how too do it


I've done this many times
You will need a tubing cutter
Screwdriver
I think a 7 or 8mm socket
hose clamps
the appropriate amount of heater hose
zip ties

cut the steel heater line at the front in a place you can get access to,leave yourself enough steel hose on the rear to allow you to put the heater hose on cut off the steel hose and discard, and use 2 hose clamps on either end do the same for the other heater hose,this way is cheap and easy and permanant.Be sure that when you run the heater hose keep it away from hot or moving parts,use the zip ties to fasten it along the way,this should take about a half hour or so depending on your skills and working conditions,remember to buy some antifreeze to top up the system because you are going to spill some,remember to clean any spills animals love it and it is deadly.
