Did this video help you?

Jay Perry: Is the 2002 / F150 4.6 heater core replacement the same as your videos 3 part series

John Sevein: If you wait until you have the dash and the top of the heater box off you can take a cutting wheel and cut off the heater core tubes from the inside and not have to fight getting the "Quick Connects" loose.

Odet Smook: its ridiculous how you have to take off everything .

beeper302: Perfect video, you saved me at least 800 if not more, Granted it took me 13 hours but I have never attempted to do this type of work on a vehicle. Thank You again for this,,,,,

witchdoc1: I just wanna thank you for posting this video...!!! You are a "GREAT" teacher and I thank you..! I've saved myself lots of cash annd now have heat again..!

James Hudson: why (typically) would a heater core fail?

MPEREZZ143: I like thes videos thanks duane and you crw for the time and big job!!!!!!!!!

Steven Birdsall: One more extra tip...If you don't want to get or have access to the special tool for the quick disconnect, just cut the tubes off the old core from the inside (as long as your replacing it) and pull them through...very simple to do and you don't have to try and fish the tool into the slots of the connector...

barqzr davi: cathodic corrosion , combined with impure metal in an area that is stressed when the parts of the core or collectors are stamped out, most always on corners or joins

dlarsen09: I just finished replacing my heater core on my 02 f150. Because of these videos I was able to save over $700 by doing it myself. I would like to say thank you and keep up the great videos.

Dohn Joe: Duane, don't raise your eyebrows, those are called Quick-Connect, not Quick-DISconnect...

tcoggs1618: The dimensions are for the 5/8 side; Total width - 1.66" . notch width - .80". notch depth - 1.0"... the 3/4 side is; Total width 1.66". notch width - 1.0". notch depth - 1.25"...

Bubble Gum: Is this the same for a 2007 F150?

tcoggs1618: For those who would like to fabricate the hose removal tool. The perfect material to make this out of is 1.5" X 1.5" angle iron 1/8" thick . The dimensions are for the 5/8 side; Total width - 1.66" . notch width - .80". notch depth - 1.0"... the 3/4 side is; Total width 1.66". notch width - 1.0". notch depth - 1.25"... Just fasten these on the opposite ends of 12 to 24 inch rod (1/4 to 1/2" thick)

Michael Wheeler: Did this for a Crown Victoria...Ford likes to hide their heater cores :) And, I would love to have had that tool...good stuff.

joe fulk: i want to thank you for your video help a lot . I used a 1" crows foot for the hose worked like a charm ,thanks agene

eccentricorgan: Thank you for posting these three videos! They were a great guide for me and my 1999 F150 4.6. After doing the procedure this weekend, I can really appreciate the intro scene you have in all three videos of you removing the dash assembly in one big piece. LOL! Lots of really nice tips in here!

Jason Larson: My Heater Core went out. Gotta love that "maple syrup" smell when it arrives. UGH! I have 314,000 miles on my 2000 F-150. The AC works fine. Is it a good idea to replace the evaporator core too? I will be doing the job myself.

stroked86cat: Did this in my 97 it is true ford hangs the heater core on the assembly line then builds the truck around it!!!!

wardubo: wow. mine just started leaking too. what great timing. lol

Doomsday971: Quick connectors are good on some things, I ended up breaking mine off and just using hose clamps......

Amy Tessier: freak THIS crap! conspiratorial engineering!

fivefortyeye540i: I bet that job cost that client a arm and leg

Dale C: Unless your have to give the old part back to the customer, cut them it'll save you time and you won't have to cut the foam pad which stays with the vehicle forever.

Mark A.: Do you have a video how to change out the heater core on a 1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport? Are there any short cuts you can give me on this? I was told the whole dash has to come out.

briansmobile1: Duane, you're the man! I was going to make a video of this today and felt like I had to do it to help people. I wound up being helped by your video instead! Thank you so much!

Bernard Beaullieu: This video is great. This is a big job but video really helps. Thanks

tinydx95t2: That tool makes it a lot easier. The tool is very reasonably priced. Can't wait to see the rest of the videos in this series.

TheThurak13: Does any one know the name of the tool he uses on 4:20?

epiphaknee: That specialty tool is a big time [life] saver! What are the "book" hours, on a heater core R&R with this vehicle?

500hpb20: @gradefuldead42022 same here

lacook19: @ethandiaz 700 bucks possibly

amjadama: Did this on my Cavalier, a painful job!!! and the worst part is the dash is "cracky" plastic and sometimes it ends up breaking and cracking in some places!! great vid as usual Duane, waiting for the other parts!! thanx!

jstmoto: Started to worry without seeing any new videos lately. Your videos are some of the most informative I've seen! Thanks

Dion Starfire: About the hose connectors not being quick: a "quick connect" isn't necessarily a quick disconnect. In fact, it's usually harder to disconnect these types of connectors (in an engine, at least) than if they'd used a slower-to-install method like clamps, bolts or screws.

Adriano Fariselli: Thanks ! I just got to say You guys got the best video How to .

llamaking12: @ethandiaz id say 600-800 ive seen

rja0536: Hi, did you have to disconnect anything on the AC? I read on other posts that some people said they had to recharge the Ac

Mike R: Great info. The book said to drain down the ac system, but i see i only need to do that if i change the evap. I guess they want me to move the evap to get out the foam piece. thanks for the cutting tip for the foam piece, saved more time and money. Great series.

barqzr davi: it's not so much the type material but the quality of it and the stamping process dies often stamp corners and bends to paper thinness

Bushougoma: The special tool is OTC part number 519156 you can get it for 12 bucks if you look around. You can do it without the tool and a pair of pliers or vice grips but the tool makes it infinitely easier. The plastic retainer clips the tool depresses MUST be replaced after disconnecting the fittings they are one time use. The sealing orings must also be replaced. Dorman sells the retainers so you don't need to go to the dealer.

nengberg21: It's called a heater hose disconnect tool. autozone sells them for 20 bucks

jt: Why does this job take 7-8 hours as the repair shop says?

REALSLATER: i'm so glad i watched this. i can't afford the 600 right now but at least now i know for today i can pack up my tools and tackle this another time. thank you so much for the information.

tcoggs1618: If you are still doing this, a couple of things.... be sure to remove the wire bundles from the passenger side wall or they will get snagged by the lower dash hinge. Also instead of buying a new door I sanded .05" off of the lower door hinge (evenly!) then slipped a 1/2" copper pipe FITTING piece over the stub..worked perfectly. Good Luck!

Dale C: Just did mine and did the same thing, way better way of doing. Wish your post would've been here before I did it. Thought of it in shower on a Sunday morning.

Diezeltube: this job is such a time consuming bitch lol

MrKillswitch777: i need a video for a 98 f150, this didnt work for mine

Danny Bam: HI. GOT A 98 FORD RANGER 3.0 IS THIS PROCESS SIMILIAR FOR MY TRUCK?

Jonathan Milbury: I thought you stopped making videos, I haven't seen a new one for quite a while
