2002 ford taurus heatercore change part 1.AVI
You will need a small box cutter, a miniature air power jig saw or simular tool, to cut out part of the molding next to the glove, with the intention of 5 min. epoxying back in place when the heatercore replacement is complete; see all five parts to get the main idea. Symptom was no heat from defroster ... change heater core!

There is a lot more here than meets the eye, the original video cut was about 16 min long. As you can see we did have some fun. I may post some of the out takes at some time in the future. I thought you might want to cover the process here and that's what I went for.
Thanks to http://www.youtube.com/user/Davidsfarm for the procedure for this and hopefully for letting me post this as a video response to his video.
If I think of anything else I think you need to know with this I'll post it later, for now I have to run.

Bad head gasket symptoms, Head gasget bad? Easy way to check- Chevy Uplander
This is an Easy way to check for bad head gasket(s).
This video shows Co2 gases entering a vehicles cooling system due to bad head gaskets.
This is what can happen when you do not change your vehicles Antifreeze every 2 years with composite head gaskets.
The other problem I have seen is that with steel layered head gaskets the cylinder head looses it seal to the engine block over time and starts leaking between the layers.
I have seen some vehicles with as low as 32,000 miles a lot of vehicle around 80-100,000.
Probable cause two different metals (aluminum heads on a steel engine block) and two different rates of expansion and contraction.
Some symptoms can be thermostat, misfire and 02 sensor codes, bubbles in cooling system, heating problems, oil slime in coolant tank and or radiator, low coolant levels, leaking, split or blown out radiators, leaking water pumps, intake gaskets leaking oil and or antifreeze, catalytic converters that are inefficient or clogged, oxygen sensors that quit working properly and spark plugs that are coolant fouled. If the problem has gone on for long period of time and the gasket(s) is deteriorated enough and the antifreeze is now entering the combustion chamber, then you might have other symptoms of white smoke out the Exhaust and antifreeze mixed in with your oil.
Dealers used to say Maintenance Free, Change your Antifreeze every 5 years or 150,000 miles. Now they say 30,000 miles, which for most of us is about 2 years. Huge difference.
Be mindful of these symptoms and remember to Find and fix the cause not just the symptom.
This video is of a 2007 Chevy Uplander, 3.9 Liter with 52,181 miles.
Ford Taurus Blown Head Gasket
This car has had overheating problems for years. It finally blew a head gasket. or so we think. There's water in the Exhaust and water in the oil. It runs on four cylinders, so we checked all the plugs and pulled out the two that were wet. Then we fired it up and found that the water pump pushes water into the cylinder, and with the plugs out, the compression pushes the water out of the plug hole. When the plugs were in it, the water was pushed past the piston rings, hence the water in the oil. Everybody thought I should be the one to take the motor apart to check the head out. I have no experience working on modern cars or engines, so it was going to be interesting
