Question about 2000 Ford Taurus
The only coolant hoses that go by the firewall are the heater hoses. Remove the clamp and twist it while pulling out. DO NOT USE EXCESSIVE FORCE or you may damage the heater core nipple, if the hose is too tight, slide the clamp back and cut the hose loose. If after the repair the hose still reaches the nipple, just slide it in and tighten the clamp, if it is too short, replace the hose.
Now, if you detect that the hoses are too soft when you squeeze it, replace both hoses.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa!!
