Taurus Heater Core Flush
NOTE OF CAUTION!!! Do Not pressurize the hose 100% with house
pressure--use brief bursts of water to help break up/move the crud in the
core. Using full unrestricted house water pressure will damage your
cooling system. No sustained pressure should ever exceed the rated usage
pressure for the system. CORRECTION--The thermostat on this engine is
actually located at the rear of the engine.
Flushing a 1997 Taurus Heater Core. This Era Taurus has a cooling system
defect which causes the antifreeze to degrade rapidly into a rusty brown
sludge in a short time. This defect was addressed by Ford years ago, but
the end result still leaves owners of vehicles like this one (a 3.0 engine)
to have other problems--like no heat in the winter. The water pumps are
also prone to fail. Some vehicles have a heater core bypass
installed--this one doesnt. Taurus forums all suggest core isolation and
flushing--so this video addresses this process.
Let's add some heat!

The engineers must have been on lunch break on this one, whomever would
have dreamed up this one should see a shrink. They literally have me it
impossible to change the heater core without removing the dash
board...unless you use a little poor mans ingenunity. Be careful with the
louver door actuator(white plastic box/motor), very fragile, handle gently.
Heater Core Replacement - '69 Cougar
In this episode, we tackle one of the most dreaded jobs for classic car
owners: replacing the heater core. On a classic Cougar or Mustang with air conditioning, it's a
very involved process. In this case, we use a 1969 Mercury Cougar 428 CJ
convertible as a guinea pig.
Don walks through how to remove the dash pad and lower dash panel, and how
to remove and service the heater box plenum and blower motor assembly.
Along the way, he offers several tips on other jobs you should consider
tackling while you're in the process.
This is a job that we actually recommend you attempt yourself, rather than
taking your car to a shop. Not only will you save money, but you will
probably be a lot more careful than the average mechanic, and will avoid
breaking expensive / irreplaceable parts. The fiberglass heater box itself
is very fragile and valuable, and most of the plastic clips for the wiring
harness are not reproduced.
