The dash must be completely removed in order to gain access to the heater box. Then the heater hoses are disconnected and the heater box is removed and opened up. That gains access to the heater core for relacement.

Remove both heater hoses from inlet & outlet of heater core. Connect these hoses together.

Only if the coolant is leaking from the heater core, but you will see this.

A 91 engine will not fit in a 98 Escort. The 91 engine is from a generation II Escort whereas a 98 engine is from a generationIII Escort.

To install a new heater core in a 1991 Camry, the passenger side dash has to be removed. After access is gained to the heater core, the old one needs to be taken out and a new one put in, replacing all of the wires and hoses.

your heater core is leaking. this is located most the time under the dash. you will have to have it replaced

yes they are the same. take heater lines loose from fire wall and take the screws out of the lower passenger dash board. (lines located in engine compartment)

It is at the dash board bottom just at the middle. You can see a plastic rectangle were the heater core is and at the right side are the pipes that goes to the coolant valve at the engine

It should be comparable of the 91 is a 2nd generation Escort.

I have a '91 and I believe they're about the same though. The heater core is back inside the glove compartment. You'll probably have to remove the door/tray itself. To get it out you have to disconnect the coolant hoses going through the firewall (engine side). After that there really shouldn't be much to it.

plugged heater core or bad blower motor or vent plugs

I assume you mean the heater core? there are about 6 screws in the bottom of the heater inside the cab on the passenger side, remove the hoses from the engine compartment take the panel off of the bottom, be careful with the foam rubber on the panel, and it just pulls thru the firewall

The heater hoses connect the block, radiator, heater core, and waterpump. To replace, drain the radiator and catch the anti-freeze for recycling. Remove the hoses and put on new hoses. It is kind of nasty but not very difficult.

No, A 91 to a 96 transmission will fit a 94 Escort.

yes, how do you, my '91 S. heater core was spilling water on my passengers side floor from time to time, when really bad I bought a new one, but yrs after buying it, it still has not been replaced.

Disconnect the negative battery cable. Drain the engine coolant into a clean container for reuse. Raise and safely support the vehicle. Remove the rear lateral transaxle strut mount, if necessary. Remove the drain tube and disconnect the heater hoses from the core tubes, lower the vehicle. Remove the sound insulators, console extensions and/or steering column filler, as required. remove the floor console outlet ductwork and hoses. remove the heater core cover. Remove the heater core mounting clamps and remove the heater core. This information was taken from chiltons auto repair manual. So good luck and hope it works out

From the inside. Look under the passenger side dash. There is a big plastic box. The heater core is inside it. The heater core hoses are about 1 inch in diameter running from the right side of the engine to the firewall. Get new hoses and hose clamps while you're getting your new heater core. They don't cost much, but if the old ones fail six months from now it will cost you plenty. You might as well buy new coolant while you're at it, too. If you do, flush the cooling system before you start. Cut the old hoses off at the heater core, take the clamps off, cut the remaining hose off of the old heater core. If you have an air compressor, it might be worth the trouble to blow the coolant out of the heater core at this point, to keep it from running all over the interior. Remove all the fasteners holding the heater box ("modular duct" according to my book). Pull it out, and the heater core is behind it. As they say, installation is the reverse of removal. It should be the same from '82 to '93, or maybe beyond.
