Question about 1999 Ford Taurus
993 Ford Taurus Heater Core leak/\ Can I bypass the heater coil to get the car on the road?
They also said the Timing Chain Cover Seal would have to be re-sealed - that it was leaking? That I might as well changed the timing chain, the water pump and the thermostat.... It's Mother in law's car and we just want to get it back from where it is and decide to trade it in or get it to our own shade tree mechanic. what to do what to do....
I would disconect heater core hoses at fire wall and put in a piece of metal pipe of the same diameter clamp it well and it should get you where you want to go for now.This is just temporary!

Remove and replace heater core procedures: To install:
Nov 09, 2010 | 1988 Ford Bronco
Disconnect the negative battery cable and wait at least one minute for the air bag system to lose power. Make sure the front wheels are straight ahead and lock the steering column.
Detach the air bag module by removing the bolts from underneath both sides of the steering wheel and the electrical connector. Remove the steering wheel bolt and press the wheel away from the steering column. Remove the lower steering column cover.
Insert a 1/8-inch wire or pin punch in the shroud hole under the ignition switch while it's in the "Run" position. Press on the pin and pull on the ignition switch lock cylinder to remove it.
Disassemble and remove the instrument panel from the Taurus' interior. This includes the radio and all panels, electrical connectors, harnesses and screws. You'll need an assistant to help you lift and remove the instrument panel.
Drain the engine coolant from the cooling system, using a clean container for reuse. Remove the heater hoses, actuator and metal cover from the heater. Disengage the spring from the heater core cover and the lever.
Depress the locking ramp and remove the lever from the secondary air temperature control (the lever is brittle, so don't bend it). Remove the primary air conditioning air temperature control door shaft from the pin.
Remove the heater core cover and seal from the heater/air conditioning housing assembly. Remove the heater core from the heater/air conditioning housing by pressing on the core tubes and assembly.
Install the replacement heater core to the heater/air conditioning housing. Install the core cover, seal, lever, spring, metal cover, actuator and heater hoses.
Replace and assemble the instrument panel with your assistant's help. Connect the steering wheel (use a new bolt to connect it to the column), air bag and negative battery cable.
Refill the cooling system with either the old coolant or new. Start the Taurus' engine and let it reach normal operating temperature. Watch the climate control operation and check for any leaks.
