Rinnai come standard with the hose you have. I know for certain a few years ago you could buy the longer hose (WA Australia). Ring around some of the gas retail shops, let them know the model. I'm sure if you found a shop that sold them they would fit it for you and test it. If your not in Australia ring the Rinnai helpline, make sure it's legal to have a 3M hose and maybe ask them for a retailer close to you if possible.

How to flush coolant from a 2003 holden vectra zc

Disconnect upper and lower radiator hoses while vehicle running. Insert water hose on upper hose and let it run water until you no longer see coolant coming out. Remember to have heaters running to also clean heater core.
Once clear water comes out of lower hose, turn vehicle off and re-attach both hoses. Fill with proper coolant and run vehicle with heaters on. Take for a drive to remove any air from system. Then top off with coolant.

What would be leaking under my radiator on the drivers side?

It sounds like your thermostat is stuck closed. Your thermostat also acts as a heater valve to let hot coolant go to your heater core to blow hot air if your thermstat is stuck close it prevents your coolant to run through your radiator to cool down and to blow hot air from your heater core. A way to check to see if your thermostat is working while its at operating temp feel the bottom and top radiator hose if your lower hose is cold and top is hot your thermo is stuck closed but be careful hoses might be very hot

Replacing lines for heater core

drain the system, measure both heater hoses, cut a small portion of one of the hoses out and take it to a parts store. ask them to sell you a length of hose of the same inside diameter, but a foot longer than your total measurement, plus 4 hose clamps. take your hose home and replace the lines one at a time. make sure to use some effort to clean off the metal before you slide the hose over and tighten clamps firmly but not so hard as to cut through your new hose. put the coolant back in and buro system. That should do it but do not be surprised if new hoses do not fix a plugged and hence nonfunctional heater core.

Steam coming out vents haven seen any leaks yet

Hello jgreenley32: My name is Roger and I will help you. Steam from the a/c and defrost vent generally means a leaking heater core. The steam usually has a really sweet sickening smell to it. The longer you run the engine the thicker the steam. The way to tell for sure it is the heater core would be to bypass the heater. To do this just remove the heater hoses from the heater core at the fire wall area. Not sure where they are just follow the hoses from the engine back to the firewall on the passenger side of the truck.Remove the hoses and plug them off or put a splice between them. Start the truck and warm up the engine. If the steam is gone ? Then the heater core is bad and needs replaced. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Heating coil gone water leaking inside of car need to find hose to block water from getting into car was told to plug hose that is putting water into car don't know which one to cut and plug.

What you have to do is unhook the heater core and loop one of the hoses. Go in the engine compartment and unclamp the 2 hoses from the heater core at the firewall [1] in below picture. Also unclamp one of the hoses at the engine, and circle the other hose back onto that pipe, so that one hose is no longer used but the second hose goes from the engine right back to the engine. Let me know if you have questions.

How do you bypass the water heater on a 97 Ford Expedition?

With long needlw nose pliers the longer heater hose needs to be removed from the heater core by grabbing the clamp squeezing it open and turning the hose till it comes free of the core, Follow the other hose to the place that it hooks to the engine and unhook it there and put the hose that you removed first on the engine. When you get the new core, the hoses will still be good and can be used with the new core. 2) the quick and more expensive way. Stop at an autoparts store and get a hose connecter and two hose clamps. Get out your sharp knife and cut the two hoses where you can get to them, put in the connector and tighten up the clamps. 3) Another way is to get plugs and hose clamps or reuse the old ones and remove the hoses and plug them the engine will cool OK this way too. Don't forget to refill the cooling system and recheck it after driving.

92 Mustang Engine WIll Not Heat

Sounds like you have partialy blocked heater core,not enough flow to the heater or heater tap either not working or only partialy open.You may have to remove heater hose at the fire wall and flush with garden hose.Also check if heater hoses are clear and running freely by using the same garden hose If you put hose up removed heater hose you should get a strong run of water coming out of the heater radiator.
