How To Unclog a Heater Core - EricTheCarGuy
Heater problems in the winter suck. But with a little diagnosis you can
usually figure out the problem. Heater cores can get clogged from time to
time and this video presents a solution to that problem should you have it.
BTW, the product used in the video was CLR. If you KNOW you have a clogged
heater core this procedure is a good thing to try to help fix the problem.
However, if you are having heating problems I would suggest you check for
air in the cooling system first before performing this procedure. The #1
cause of heating problems is actually air in the cooling system. More

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.
