Question about 2001 Ford Expedition

1 Answer

I just replaced my heater core and everything was working fine before I replaced it. Now that i have everything back together, it sounds just like it is going to start, but it won't turn over. I know the starter and everything is still good..but trying to figure out if I missed a wire or something and which one it could be.

You were in the vicinity of the Inertia switch which is behind the passengers kick panel. This is a safety switch and sometimes it needs resetting when it senses a bump. There is a button you push down and hold.

Depending on how the kick panel snaps back into place, you may want to try starting your Expedition before you replace the panel. This will ensure it has fixed the problem in case it trips again while you put things back together.

As I read your message, I believe you mean the motor turns over but just won't run. If I read you correctly, the Inertia switch is probably the problem. Except for a possible Vacuum plug-in for the flaps in the Ductwork, there is not much on the heater core side of the dash to make a difference in starting. The Brain should be higher into the dash and to the left of the glovebox.

How to install a new heater ore for a 2002 saturn sl


It's a long 7-10 hour job.

Have to remove the dashboard

then remove hoses to heater core
then remove wires going to heater core circuit board
then remove heater core
replace it and put everything back together without messing anything under your dashboard.

Mechanics charge between $700 to $1000 to replace one.

If the core is not leaking (wet passenger side floor) you may want to try a reverse flush before touching anything, remove the 2 hoses in the engine compartment at the firewall leading to the heater core and with a garden hose flood the heater core connector until it the water is clear then do the other connector.

If that don't work and your not sure you can do the replacement correctly don't do it.

You will need to take the dashboard apart and then take all of the heating duct off. Unhook the 2 hoses to the engine cooling system in the engine bay. Then take the duct apart to take the heater core out . After all that just take everything back together. It,s a big job for sure!!!

A QUICK FIX FOR A DAMAGE HEATER CORE?
TO REPLACE A HEATER CORE IT COST ABOUT $700..
THE COMPLETE DASHBOARD HAVE TO BE REMOVE...

BUT IM HERE TO SPARE YOU OF $700 FOR NOW.

I WILL GIVE YOU THE BEST AND QUICK AND CHEAPEST SOLUTION TO GET YOUR CAR ON THE ROAD... ASAP, A $20 FIX..

DO IT YOURSELF AND SAVE THE TOWING TO MECHANIC.

THE BAD (YOUR HEATER WILL NOT WORK).. YOUR FAN AND AC WILL WORK FINE, JUST NO HEAT. (SOLUTION>)GET A PORTABLE HEATER THAT CONNECT TO YOUR LIGHTER UNTIL YOU GET THE CASH TO PAY $700+

A HEATER CORE IS THE LITTLE RADIATOR UNDER YOUR DASH, THAT RECEIVE ANTIFREEZE FROM THE BIG RADIATOR IN FRONT OF THE ENGINE, THAT GIVES YOU HEAT DURING COLD WEATHER.

FROM THE BIG RADIATOR THERE IS 2 LITTLE HOSES THAT ATTACHES TO THE HEATER CORE, LOOK FOR IT NEAR THE BRAKE SYSTEM IN BACK OF THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT ON THE PANEL OF THE CAR. (2 RUBBER HOSES.. (SEE PIC BELOW FOR SAMPLE)

THEY WILL HAVE 2 CLAMPS, WITH REGULAR HAND TOOLS, YOU
WOULD BE ABLE TO REMOVE BOTH HOSES, ONCE YOU REMOVE THEM..
BUY A SMALL METAL TUBE IN THE SHAPE OF A (U)
AND CONNECT BOTH HOSES TO EACH OTHER, AND PLACE BOTH BRACKETS OR CLAMPS TIGHTLY FOR NO LEAKS.

ITS A 10 MIN JOB.

REMOVING BOTH HOSES FROM THE HEATER CORE AND RE-ATTACHING THEM TOGETHER, ALL YOU DOING ITS ELIMINATING THE HEATER CORE COMPLETELY, THAT'S LOCATED UNDER THE DASH FOR HEATING SUPPORT.

IF YOUR HEATER CORE WAS LEAKING ANTIFREEZE INSIDE YOUR CAR, IT WILL STOP LEAKING ONCE YOU DISCONECT THE 2 HOSES FROM OUTSIDE ENGINE COMPARTMENT, THERE WILL BE NO MORE ANTIFREEZE GOING INTO YOUR HEATER CORE SINCE YOU WILL BYPASS THE HEATER CORE.

ONCE YOU CONNECT BOTH HOSES TOGETHER, THE ANTIFREEZE WILL CIRCULATE BACK TO THE FRONT RADIATOR AND NO OVER HEATING AND NO LEAKING INSIDE YOUR CAR MO MORE. YOUR CAR WILL DRIVE FINE, YOUR AC AND FAN WILL WORK THE SAME...SO LONG THAT WAS THE ONLY PROBLEM.

THIS THE MOST AFFORDABLE AND QUICKEST SOLUTION TO GET BACK ON THE ROAD ASAP.

LEAVE ME YOUR FEEDBACK.

GOOD LUCK

THANKS

Thermostat and engine heat seem fine, seems that heat knob, gears and cable are all working fine, but have practically no heat from heater.....96 Dodge Ram 1500 4 x 4. No problems with ducts switching...


Hello. First, does the fan speed work correctly? When you put it in the high possition does the air come out faster?, if so, raise the hood, look back on the firewall, ( behind the motor ), and locate 2 hoses that are about 1 1/4 inch in diameter that both hook up to pipes on the firewall. This is your inlet, and outlet for your heater core. I suspect you will find that these hoses have been joined together to bypass the heater core. Often when a heater core is leaking people don't have the money to replace the heater core, they generally cost $300 to $400 and sometimes more, then you have to pay the labor, in some cases, to remove about half of the dash to get to the heater core. This repair can be expensive indeed, so, often people just bypass the heater core by joining the inlet and outlet hoses of the core directly together skipping the core altogether.
Good luck!

Do you have to remove whole dashboard on 96 gmc jimmy to remove and replace heater core?or can you do everything from underneath the glove box?


  1. Remove the front dash panel by turning the lower screws in a counter-clockwise direction, then unscrewing the single bolt on the lip of the instrument cluster and pulling the panel out. Remove the rear wiper switch and the 4x4 switches, if applicable. Lowering the tilt wheel will allow the panel to be totally removed.
  2. Remove the radio, headlight switch module and glove box by turning their screws in a counter-clockwise direction.
  3. Remove the main dashboard by unbolting it at the front, between the windshield and firewall. There are six to eight bolts holding it in, and, once they are removed, the dash can be pulled away from the firewall. Be careful not to pull too much, as the wiring harness could become damaged.
  4. Drain the coolant system by turning the drain plug on the lower left corner of the radiator and allowing the fluid to fall into the drain pan. Uncapping the radiator can reduce the internal pressure.
  5. Remove the heater core hoses, on the upper left of the engine bay, by pinching their hose clamps with a pair of pliers and pulling them off. Some models will have screw-type hose clamps; turning them counter-clockwise will loosen them. Age and heat may have stuck the hoses to the core nipples, and the hoses can be cut right at these nipples if necessary. Leave enough hose to reconnect the new core.
  6. Unbolt the heater core's mounts with a socket wrench in a counter-clockwise direction. Once the bolts are free, the heater core can be maneuvered toward the windshield and slid out. Some coolant may splash out, so have a towel handy.
  7. Replace the heater core with a new one by sliding it into place and securing the mounting bolts.
  8. Reconnect the heater core's hoses, turn the radiator's drain plug clockwise to close it, then refill the coolant system with a 50/50 percent mix of coolant and water.
  9. Reconnect the dashboard to the firewall, then replace the front dash panel and fasten its instrument cluster screw and bottom bolts.
  10. Crank up the truck and add coolant until the heater core is filled and blowing hot air.
  11. Replace the radiator cap.
The Jimmy uses a coolant-heated radiator core mounted in the dashboard to provide heated air into the passenger compartment. This heater core can become clogged and leak, as it is usually the lowest point in the coolant system and debris settles into it. Replacement of the heater core will take the average of about two hours to complete. Good luck
