Heatercore stop up

Take the lines off the heater core and run a garden hose with a nozzel to it and let it run if you get nothing through it you will have to replace it. typically that has enough pressure to run anything out of it. should let it run for about 15 minutes.

1993 ford escort heater blowing cool

heater core cloged, get car hot check heaterhose going into heatercore should be two inch thick hoses going into the heatercore, underhood against firewall pasenger side, after hot while running heater on, chech to see if both hoses r hot, if one is cold,that means there is a restriction in the heatercore, sometimes on older cars there is a external valve run by a vaccume hose, or cable, thats fixed in with the heater hoses , sometimes this valve jams and can be manually switched.

Water leaking inside passenger floorboard,thinking its heatercore,where exacly are the hoses and how do i bypass heatercore for temp fix until i get home thx for your help

You would have to either disconnect the two hoses that are on the firewall that enter the heate-core and return hose and some how attempt to connect the two, I do not believe there is a way to do this without complete replacement of the components.

I have a 98 town car that over heats in about 10 min. the heatercore was replaced.. the coolant flush was done and the thermostat was replaced and the problem still exist.. what do I do

you have a blown head gasket i suspect, have a shop test the coolant tank for the presence of hydrocarbons with a gas analyzer or look for bubbles in the coolant recovery tank tank, if u see bubbles the problem is the head gaskets are leaking..

Replacement of heatercore

I believe you have to dissassemble the lower part of the hvac unit under the dash to gain access to the heater core, then disconnect the hoses at the firewall and remove the heater core.
