I Have a 94 Ford Explorer Which Was Leaking Antifreeze Everytime I Used the Heater. I Replaced the W

Leaking Heater core. Heater core is on the passenger compartment of the vehicle and brings in heat to the compartment when you turn on the heater. It looks like a mini radiator. Do not drive the car if you are losing that much coolant because it could allow the car to overheat and damage the engine. Easiest fix is to simply by-pass the heater core completely. This will allow you to drive the car, but you wo not have heat inside the passenger compartment. You can replace the heater core, but typically this involves taking apart a good portion of the center console and can be labor intensive.

1. Where is the heater core for a 1991 honda civic?

The heater core is usually under the dash, above the passenger's feet. On a Honda, it is likely covered by a piece of black molded plastic. Remove this plastic, and you should find your heater core. As to the replacement, I have never done it in a Civic, but if Toyotas are any indication, it might be worth the labor charge to take it to the mechanic. What makes you think you need a new heater core? If it is only leaking slightly, put some Barrs Stop Leak in your radiator. Be sure and run the heater full blast while you are running the engine as instructed. This will stop a small leak, sometimes for a couple of years. How much longer are you going to have the car?

Heater Core Problem?
Refer to my answer in "how do I bleed a radiator" You need to bleed the cooling system as a whole. Meaning, car at operating temp with thermostat open (both top and bottom radiator hoses will be hot indicating coolant blow through thermostat). Open bleed using radiator key until you have fluid flow and air is gone. Check for additional bleeder nipple on thermostat housing and bleed (using same method as radiator) if present. Hope I have helped. Cheers1. Is it possible to heat a car with a space heater?Get a hotter rated thermostat in the motor and give up the crazy ideas!2. What is wrong with my water heater?well chances are the bathroom faucet is probably the last faucet in the run,maybe that's why you need to let it drain for a while,and as far as the leak is concerned it may be the seat not the washer,check the seat in the faucet and see if it has chips or breaks in it,if so then you can replace it just like the washer,first you will need a seat tool to remove it,very inexpensive,take it out and take it to the hardware store and let them match it up unless you already know what type it is,reinstall it along with a new washer(it probably already has cuts in it) and before you turn the water back on make sure to take the aerator off the faucets in the house,unless you want to replace all of them3. Do I need a heater core?Best thing I would do replace the thermostat again get the rad flushed and refilled. Start from there. No change then start looking at other cooling system parts4. How do you convert a car to run on cooking oil?Firstly, it needs to have a diesel engine pre 1997 with mechanical injection (rotary pump and mechanical injectors) and no electronic engine management (ECU).Secondly, if the vehicle does not already have a fuel pre-heater, then you will need to fit one.Thirdly, if you do not plan to create biodiesel (TME) from the cooking oil but use it raw, you will need to replace any seals in the fuel lines with Vitron food-grade seals rather than rubber ones. If you tick all those boxes, you are good to go. Run it on 95% oil and 5% conventional diesel in summer and a 60% oil and 40% diesel mix in winter.I have driven several vehicles fuelled on cooking oil. A series of 1990-1992 Peugeot 309 GRD vehicles and a couple of Vauxhall Astra 1.7TD vehicles.How do you convert a car to run on cooking oil?5. Fix the heater on my Ford Explorer?If you do not have any coolant leaking inside or outside the truck then it's a very simple problem to fix..and should not cost you alot of money if you can do it yourself ..just change your thermostat..the reason it is working sometimes and not on other times is because it's sticking open. .if it sticks open then the coolant can not warm up..so it is allways running cold..the way a thermostat works is that once your car gets to a certain temperature ."usually on the thermostat" then it opens up and starts to cool the motor and in turn warming up the liquid. .get yourself a good all season thermostat usually for a ford truck would be 190-205 degrees..if you want to change it yourself should be simple just follow the big hose from your rad to the engine and you will see a metal housing held on with 2 nuts..remove these two nuts and remove the old thermostat and replace it with a new one . ."in the same position" you may need a new gasket as well..or you can use RTV silicone..i would get a new gasket for a few dollars6. Name of water heater part?Pilot light7. can the water pressure valve from heater cause an explosion(pics) (10 points) ?The valve with red handle is probably the inlet water valve. Open the valve completely. What controls the amount of water entering the heater is the amount you are using at the lavatory to brush your teeth. You have a faucet on the lavatory that you adjust for the amount of water you need. The valve with the red handle should be full open so that it gives you all it can. Now, on you heater, you also have a pressure relief valve that is screwed directly into the side of the hot water tank. And there might be some piping that would carry that discharge away from the tank. That line does not have any valves, restrictions or anything that would interrupt the emergency discharge of steam from the tank. I do not see the pressure relief valve in the photo

The typical shop rate is 8 hours /- and most of the dashboard has to be disassembled. A failed heater core will normally leak coolant. If the owner is adding coolant on a regular basis, this may be the problem. Heater cores may also get clogged by debris in the cooling system. One might be able to swap the inlet and outlet the hoses on the core to blow out the contaminants. No guarantee it will work in your specific application, but it has for me in the past.

How do I know if my heater core is clogged?You could try disconnecting the tubes feeding the matrix and trying to run water from a normal mains supply through it - try it in both directions - a "reverse flush" might clear out any blockage. You could even try descaling it with something like vinegar.But heaters are tricky - they're usually difficult to get to, and there are 2 main types, those that control the airflow round the matrix and those that control the water flow through the matrix. The second type are more efficient, but the valves which control the water flow are also inclined to get clogged up.How do I know if my heater core is clogged?
How Many Labor Hours Listed to Replace Heater Core on 03 Buick Century V6 and Is It a Knuckle Scrapi
Myself I think that make of car is not too bad to do but I bet the book states at least 6 to 9 hrs . Personally I think most heater cores are a pain to replace but for me I've found a do it yourself auto wreckers helps me alot bec it offeres the chance to actually learn just how a certain dash etc comes a part hands on. On my car for example its a Intrepid , I had to take a part 3 different Intrepids dashs just to even find one really good heater core. But to be safe I had it pressured tested and tested over night to make sure it was in fact a good heater core for 15.00.It turned out it was the best used heatcore the wreckers I took the heat core to have tested that they had ever seen. I knew the job wou;d be a real pain bec of the experience taking a few out so I looked around and waited till I found a cheap garage father son that did it for me as I was on vacation and the weather was getting coller and I had no time to do it myself. They said they would never do one again unless paid triple lol was in fact I was right to let someonelse to the job lol Only problem was I knew they would crack something or forget to connect something or mess something up. In fact they did all 3 boo boo's lol but the book states 9 hrs for that job, that's at least 1,000 all in all at alot of shops and at least 600.00 min, and I got it done for 200.00 and in fact most shops would not even dare to attempt the job. Hope that helps and best of luck , by the way do not forget to reconnect the radio, antenna etc lol1. I have a '95 Nissan Maxima. Can I flush my heater core without going through too much hassle?I own a shop, and can tell you this; If you will go to a parts store and purchase a flush valve that you install in the heater hose, you can hook a garden hose to it, open the drain on the radiator, and turn on the hose full blast while it is running, and this should flush the whole system pretty good. They are pretty cheap, easy to install, and real easy to use. When you are done, you just turn off the valve and leave it installed in the hose for the next time you wish to flush the system. Cut the hose, install it with two clamps that are provided, and you are good to go. Part 2: I would think a master technician would know that bolts are not measured by what size wrench fits them. They are measured by the (outside diameter) OD of the bolt, and (inside diameter) ID of a nut. The other measurments are; length, threads per inch or (mm) millimeter, hardness, and type of head used on the bolt, as in Hex Head, Socket Head, or whatever it may be. Glad to help out, Good Luck!!!2. how do i replace the heater core in a 1980 F250 with out AC?I think that was one of the easy ones.

If you have a couple of vise grips you can clamp them on fairly tight on each heater hose and then drive to where you want to go5. How to correct heater core leak for 1994 Pontiac Grand AM?no matter if that's out of the tube previous the firewall it will be leaking from the position the rubber hose clamps on to it. you would attempt only replacing this rubber hose. that's less expensive and once you may interchange the heater middle you will maximum in all probability opt to regulate the connecting hoses also when you consider that they are in all likelihood 13 years previous.
Sputtering Sedan Could Have a Stuck Valve
QUESTION: I have a problem with my 2005 Nissan Altima. My "check engine" light came on, so I went to the mechanic to have him pull the code. He said it wasn't really reading anything, reset the code and told me to come in if it happens again. The next day it came on again. I stopped at the gas station since I needed gas and filled my tank. When I went to start my car, it wouldn't start. I sat there for 15 minutes before it started. When it did start, I had to give it some gas because it was sputtering. The "check engine" light was still on so I brought the car to the mechanic the next day. He reset the code again and said to let him know if it came on again at the gas station next time.I filled up about a week later, and once again it wouldn't start. I told my mechanic this and he said to try to get gas with the car running next time. So once again, I got gas but this time left my car running.This time, as I was pumping gas, the car was sputtering and the tachometer was fluttering the entire time. But when I was done pumping, it seemed to run just fine. My car acts up only when filling gas; otherwise it runs great.R.S.ANSWER: What's interesting about this question is that the mechanic is trying to pinpoint the problem by asking the car owner to do all the work! Try this, try that, etc. Since the "check engine" light has come on each time, a scan tool should identify the specific DTC fault code associated with this problem. The comment "wasn't really reading anything" doesn't make sense - the "check engine" light was on!I suspect the DTC will relate to the evaporative emissions system, which includes the purge valve. If the purge valve is stuck open, raw fuel/vapours can be pumped through the charcoal canister directly into the induction system during refuelling, which, of course, would create exactly the symptoms you've described.Q: I have a 2004 5.7-litre Dodge Durango with 260,000 kilometres. As I come to a complete stop, the tachometer will drop momentarily from around 750 r.p.m to less than 500. The engine will occasionally stall. I must depress the gas pedal slightly to get it restarted. Initially, I had the throttle body thoroughly cleaned, then replaced it this past weekend. I also replaced the oxygen sensors, but nothing has helped. I should also mention that the "check engine" light has never come on. Any ideas?K.D.A: The 5.7-litre V-8 in this vehicle is equipped with a "flyby-wire" throttle system. Instead of a mechanical cable or linkage connecting the throttle pedal to the throttle body, an accelerator pedal position sensor, or APPS, is fitted directly to the throttle pedal and electrically connected to the powertrain control module, or PCM. In simple terms, rather than the throttle plate being opened and closed mechanically by movement of the throttle pedal, the position of the throttle pedal is communicated to the PCM, which operates the throttle via signal to the electronic throttle body.Now that you've cleaned and replaced the throttle body, which includes the throttle and idle air control valve, I'd suggest plugging in a scan tool and having the APPS swept/checked for dead spots in its potentiometer. Also, check for any type of vacuum or air leak in the induction system that would allow unmetered air into the system.Q: I have a 1998 Chevy S-10 and I am getting the smell of antifreeze coming from the air vents. It seems to be stronger when the heat is on. There is no antifreeze leaking anywhere in the engine or under the dash. The heater core hoses are tight, and they are both hot after warming up the engine. I just recently bought the truck and a short time after that the A/C quit working. I don't know if that would cause the smell to occur. I would hate to replace the heater core if I am not sure that that is the problem. Any advice you can give would be greatly appreciated.R.G.A: Your thoughts about the odour coming from the heater core are well founded, as this is the only area within the truck cab where antifreeze exists. It's possible also, but less likely, that leaking coolant odours are coming in with the ventilation air from an under-hood leak.Typically, when a heater core begins to leak, one may notice fogging of the windshield when using the defroster; damp-slimy carpet beneath the right/centre of the instrument panel; and a citrus-like odour, similar to what you've described. There would also be a loss of engine coolant, but the rate may be less than you'd expect - it only takes half a litre of leakage to create the above symptoms - and this might not be immediately evident looking at the coolant overflow bottle level. A leak from under the hood should be easy to spot on the ground.Your heater core is a cigar box-sized mini-radiator that transfers engine heat to the passenger compartment via circulating engine coolant. This part resides deep within the heater/ventilation system, and most aren't very pleasant to renew, as quite a bit of instrument panel disassembly is often required. Most heater cores are made of thin-wall aluminum, with a large network of finned passages that provide maximum surface area for heat transfer. Over time, accelerated by deferred cooling system maintenance, internal corrosion will find a weak spot, and pressurized coolant will begin to seep into the surrounding housing, and eventually to the carpet beneath.I have a hunch your heater core may have a tiny leak, and most of the liquid may be vaporizing, causing the odour, or hasn't yet reached a seam of the heater housing. To be sure, you may need to drill a small hole in the lowest part of the plastic housing. Slide a piece of hose or tubing on the drill bit so it can't bore more than one-quarter inch deep - you don't want to cause new problems. Then, after shutting off the fully warmed up engine and waiting perhaps 15 minutes, check for signs of coolant leakage at the test location. Even one drop of coolant means trouble.I can't fathom how the air conditioning working or not would be a factor regarding this odour. Refrigerant is odorless, should leakage occur. It's likely a coincidence the A/C has recently quit.Paul Brand, author of "How to Repair Your Car," is an automotive troubleshooter, driving instructor and former race-car driver.

1985 Mustang Heater Core?
Why would someone bypass a new heater core? I replaced a heater core in an 83 mustang with A/C years ago. It took 2.5 days to strip the car's dash all the way down and then replace it.

If the car does not have A/C, the job is much easier.1. what is wrong with my AC/Heater?it sounds like you have a bad fan switch. in the furnace area you will probably see a part with a silver/chrome cover that you should be able to put in manual or auto. more than likely that needs replaced assuming your fan just runs all the time. common problem ps to pull the wires on that there are little tabs you depress2. What is wrong with my car heater?Whatever is controlling your cool/hot blend door is malfunctioning, or the door is sticking3. How to Clean Thermocouple on Water Heater?Do you have colder showers than you would like, or is the water you use for dishwashing feel lukewarm? Knowing how to clean thermocouple on water heater can help you bring back more enjoyable showers, more efficient dishwashing, and others. The thermocouple is an essential element of your gas water heater's pilot light, ensuring more efficient water temperature management. Unfortunately, it can rust or wear out over time. There is no need to replace your thermocouple when all you need are a bit of elbow grease, a few tools, and this step-by-step guide to breathing life back into your thermocouple. Things You Need to Clean Your Water Heater's Thermocouple Cleaning your gas water heater's thermocouple is a pretty straightforward activity. However, there are a few preparations to get the job done. While open-end wrenches may suffice, you may have a whole bunch of these tools on hand if you do not know the size of the different nuts in your system. An adjustable wrench eliminates the need for several devices and makes your work more efficient. Emery cloth is almost similar to a nail file which has an abrasive surface. The difference is that an emery cloth has a fabric backing, while an emery board or nail file has a wooden base. The function is similar, nevertheless. They sand or smoothen the thermocouple ends while also removing oxidized layers. This type of cleaning cloth is ideal as a finishing touch to the thermocouple cleaning process. Its main advantage is that it will not leave any fluff on the surface. We recommend a microfiber cloth for cleaning the thermocouple. While not necessary, a small brush can help dust off particles from the thermocouple and the burner assembly. If the emery cloth cannot remove stubborn stains, you can use a steel pool. Always look after your safety when working with your gas water heater. Turn off the gas supply to your unit. If your unit has a power cord, it would also be best to unplug it. Some gas water heaters have two gas supply valves: one going to the gas furnace and another to the water heater. It would be safer to turn both valves off. Pro Tip: If your gas supply valve does not have a lever or a knob, you can use a pair of pliers or a vise grip to shut off the valve. If your burner has an access cover, unthread the mounting screws first. Loosen and remove the screws or nuts that secure the burner plate. Loosen the nut that connects the burner supply line to the control center. You will also disconnect the pilot light supply tube and the thermocouple. If your unit has any wires connected to the control center, you must disconnect these, too. Check your tank base if it has a vapor sensor. Detach the sensor if you have one. To gain access to the thermocouple, slide the burner assembly out of the water heater. Pro Tip: If this is your first time removing the burner assembly, it would be best to take a picture of it before disassembly. The image serves as a guide for you to reassemble the unit after cleaning the thermocouple. Sand the thermocouple ends using an emery cloth. Some plumbers recommend using steel wool to remove stubborn stains on the thermocouple. Ensure you do not see any dirt, soot, or residue after cleaning. Check the area between the thermocouple terminal and the power wire for any sign of corrosion. Remove the rust if any. Finish cleaning by wiping the thermocouple ends with a clean microfiber cloth or any other type of lint-free cloth. Pro Tip: Avoid using so-called thermocouple cleaning solutions, regardless of how convenient they may seem. Some of these products may contain flammable chemicals that can pose a threat to your system and your home. Do not limit your cleaning duties to the thermocouple. Now is the best time to give the burner a thorough cleaning as well. Get your steel wool or emery cloth sandpaper to scrape as much stain as possible from the burner's top. Use a small brush to remove debris that might go into the burner ports or holes. Cleaning your burner will improve your gas water heater's efficiency. Return the burner assembly into the water tank. Make sure to rest the burner tube on the bracket for security and stability. Secure the burner plate by threading and tightening the mounting screws or nuts. If your unit has a vapor sensor, reattach it first before reconnecting the different wires to the water heater gas valve. Position the thermocouple to the gas valve and secure it. Reconnect the pilot light supply line and the burner gas supply tube to the control center or gas valve. Replace and secure the water heater burner access cover. Open your water heater's gas supply line and plug the power cord of your unit if it has one. Turn on the pilot light and adjust the thermostat to your desired temperature. It would be best to dial in a temperature not higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Check your water if it is in your desired temperature. Do you think our simplified guide on how to clean thermocouple on water heater is simple and easy to follow? There can be many reasons why your water heater is not producing hot-enough water. A dirty thermocouple is one of them, but one that many people overlook. Now that you know how to clean your gas water heater's thermocouple, you may want to share this knowledge with your friends. They will thank you for saving them from costly repairs and replacements while letting them enjoy the benefits of a fully functioning water heater. Do share with us your thoughts, too.
Heater Core in a 2000 Mazda Protege?
I doubt it is any of the if you are getting heat out of it then it should be fine!Only thing i can tell you is that when you have it on defrost for the glass make sure the control is set to the Fresh Air setting and NOT the Re-Circulate Air.Or have the A/C button on to use the dryer system to give out a dry heat!.........Try it out and let me know............Hope That Helped!1. What happens if heater core fails?When using the heater you may experience foggy windows accompanied by the sweet aroma of the coolant inside the car if it is leaking. If it gets worse it will leak into the heater box and into the carpet of the car. Make sure that if there is a control valve to let the coolant flow that it is working by checking to see if the hoses are hot. I had a plymouth car that had issue with the core clogging up slowly over time. Every couple of months a visit to the carwash was done and heater hoses were pulled off and the pressure wand inserted into the neck and blasted out the crud. It worked like a charm. I would think you may not be able to as easily reach the heater core in most new cars but, disconnecting the hoses where they meet the engine and blasting through it with a garden hose nozzle might work. If the core is leaking it must be taken out to be fixed as in replaced and yes they seem to be deliberately designed to make it a real pain to service. The core may only cost $100 but the labor will be much, much more2. how to change the heater core out?I am going to be brutally honest with you. If you are not very good mechanically. If you do not have an entire weekend free. If you are short on patience. Forget it. and just bundle -up for the rest of the winter. No kidding thats what I do myself. On some of my own vehicles. And Iv'e been a Mechanic for over 30 yrs. I just dress warmly until April. Have Fun though3. car heater wont turn off?if your car has slides on the dash then slide both slides to the left ! that should shut off the air !4. Whats wrong? Heater core problem?If you actually unhooked the hoses from the core, and splice them together to bypass the core, then you are just cooking off the remaining antifreeze in the blend chamber. If you just turned off the heat, that usually wo not work. People with Camaro's are compensating for shortcomings.5. A room heater and a humidifier?I can not figure out why anyone would think it is dangerous. You would want to put as much space as possible between the two so they are not neutralizing each other. Have you thought about using a vaporizer as a humidifier? I use the "cold mist" type in my plant room.6.

Compare various brands as well as designs of tankless water heaters, check which of them are made from long lasting materials that can endure the misuse that it will certainly undergo everyday. Do not simply make your decision based purely on which tankless heater prices much less, odds are if you get the more affordable heating unit you will certainly invest even more money on fixings and you may even need to replace the system quicker than you expected. The following point that you require to consider previously acquiring a tankless heating unit is how much water your home will certainly eat in a day; you need a hot water heater that can stay on par with the warm water need.

To remove the hoses, you must cut them off or you will break the core, and when you put the new hose on use a little lubricant on the tubes so the hoses go on easly. The hoses that come from the core to the engine if allowed to bounce up and down will over a period break the tubes that go into the core. They must be tied up and/or supported to something that does not move to stabalize them. If they are too short, and do not have the room to move with the engine, and not move with the body, then they will break the core. What I mean is: attach the hoses to the fender somehow to keep them from moving up and down on the core side, and as the engine moves up and down with taking off and stoping they need to be able to move with the engine on that side of the hoses. This is not some mystery or an incompetant person installing the heater core. If it worked ok when it was installed, and a year later starts leaking, then how can one blame this on the installer?

If they are too loose, then coolant can trickle down the pipe to the inside of the vehicle and cause what looks like a leaking core. Check these clamps first, and if they are tight, then suspect a bad heater core. I have also seen a core that is not sitting inside a cushion mount and will allow the core to viberate and move around, and after a while causes the core to start leaking.
