    Never heard of it before, when you splice it it would be a weak point, what would you use to splice it? it would have to be a weld as the element itself gets to a high heat and other fixes would just melt, buy a new heater it would be safer and a better repair.

Splice thermostat coil

If you are talking about the copper tubing coil that comes as a unit and has to be replaced with the new switch. It is a sealed system and that is why you have to replace it.

Bypassing Heater Coil

Hey Leigh.
The firewall is the big thing that separates the engine from the cabin,, its the thing the dash is bolted to. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND TAKING THIS TO A RADIATOR SHOP/AUTO REPAIR SHOP, tell them your story, and then ask the them how much they would charge you to cut and splice the heater hoses. The hoses run through the firewall somewhere in front of where the passenger sits, the hoses run from the radiator... then have valves and connectors in them. you will need some type of female to female connector and two hose clamps..YOU MUST do this when the engine is COLD.. you don't want to attempt this with HOT antifreeze!! This is not something you can do without a fair amount of knowledge about how automotive A/C and heater systems work.. Once you can identify the correct hoses... it won't be could actually bypass ALL the valves and connections.. Find the two hoses that come from the radiator and splice them together when you find a length of hoses that will facilitate a connection loop.. please rate as helpful..

1985 3.7LX 4cl. blue wire to the oil press,resiter wire, coil to carb heat, both heat up.ignition on

Not sure what the question is ?
The heater for the choke and the coil draw alot of amps.
If either component has an internal short to ground, the wire will be very hot rather than just warm.
You could disconnect either component and see if the wire is still hot.

Getting a misfire due to faulty wiring at the #6 ignition coil. I untaped the wires for coils 5-8 and noticed that there is a splice in the system. Was there a factory splice in the system?? If not how do...

could be original splice for whatever reason ? sorry iam a europeon mechanic so i have never seen this vehicle but its got four wheels and a engine -- so iam qualified ,right what i would do here is to measure the voltages first from another cylinder then compare to this cylinder ,it could ba plug or faulty coil so work from a process of elimination logically then if the voltages are correct check the fuel injector voltage ,a scope is best for this sort of work but who has one of these in their toolbox so just use a multimeter .

My oven is on warming mode from last six hours. Please adivse

First, check the back of the oven. See if the lil red button can be pressed in. Then check the IR Element, usually you can see the wires burned or damaged where it enters the oven by the snap rings. This was a design flaw from the manufacturer of the element of which turbochef has taken care of.

IR Element
The IR element - a dual coil type heater - is located
in the bottom of the oven cavity. The first coil is the
heating coil. The second is the IR thermocouple
wire. The heating coil outputs 3000 watts at 208
VAC. The heating coil's resistance is 14.4 ohms at
room temperature.
The thermocouple coil is a Type K thermocouple
with a resistance of approximately 20 ohms at the
splices located approximately 6 inches from the
heater and 40 ohms measured at the extension wires
at the I/O control board.
The IR element is controlled via the K5 solid state
relay and the IR thermocouple via the I/O control

Its typically an easy quick fix.

Dryer not heating. need instructions on pulling heating element out to replace.

Most dryers have a panel on the back where one can check the heater coils. Depending on the make, sometimes you have to remove the top and or the drum to access the coils. When you get to the coils you can replace or join(splice) them back together by forming a hook on each end and after hooking them back together twisting the free ends on themselves. This will work and you may not have to but a new coil. Kind of like a fishing knot without the knot.

Need to replace heater raidator under dash.anyone done one

The heater "coil" almost always requires removal of the entire dashboard and it's not much fun. You shouldn't even think about it without at least a Chilton's (or other) manual unless you're pretty used to disassembling and reassembling complex components. If it's leaking antifreeze, you can bypass the heater for now (brrrr) by splicing the heater coil's inlet and outlet hoses together. In the engine compartment look for two hoses, same sized, that are leading into your firewall. They'll be right next to each other, usually one above, rather than beside the other. They'll be the only hoses with anti freeze that attach to the firewall. Pull both hoses from the firewall and insert a splice, connecting these hoses. Secure with hose clamps. This will seal the coolant system and bypass the heater. The car will be perfectly safe to drive now until you replace the heater coil.
