On the firewall you will see the two hoses going though it,it will have hose clamps on them,remove them,remember or mark witch side they go on,now, under the dash in the passenger side you will see the black box, it has 4screws to it, remove them,then pull the cover off,you will see the coils,get ahold of it,wiggle it towards you,also moving up and down, lightly,lightly, now installing is same but reversed,now i would hold one of the small tubes and install the hose,cause it will slide back and possiably fall out,be carefull,if you are having trouble getting the hose on the tube,use alittle lube,you can do it,just take your time..

SOURCE: heater core replacement

It's one of the easiest cores to replace that I have encountered. Disconnect heater hoses at firewall. Probably doesn't matter about hose placement, but I always mark them just in case. To remove the fiber cover under dash, take a flat blade screwdriver and pry out the center pin of the expansion clips that hold it in place. There are four 5/16 head screws that hold the bottom/drain tray cover. Core will pull through the firewall and then down. You may have to silicone/glue or replace the foam seal strips on the new core. Before you install the core, check the distance between the inlet and outlet tubes to ensure they match the openings in the firewall. This saves time. It helps if you have someone on the outside to guide you when stabbing the tubes through the firewall. Replace bottom cover. You may have to hold one of the tubes when reinstalling the first hose to the core. Replace any lost coolant and check for leaks prior to reinstalling the fiber cover. If the cover seal is in good condition, any leak should drain through the firewall, otherwise it may leak inside cab. .

Where is the fuel filter located. Can this be easily replaced or does a shop need to replace it? (1987 Ford Ranger XLT V6)


That depends, some have filters in the tank. But most of them are under the truck running along the frame. You should be able to get a haynes or chiltins manual and it will tell you where it is.
