for any auto repair, consult your repair manual. if you do not have the required tools, manuals or knowledge to complete the repair then you need to consult a certified mechanic.

any mess-ups that you make while doing your own mechanical work can be catastrophic. engine parts must perform their job up to 100 times per second, and anything that is installed incorrectly can cause bad performance or even system failure, possibly damaging other components and increasing repair costs.

A Ford Mustang does not have a heater coil. You must be thinking of your home HVAC.

The heater coil and a heater core is the same thing. Hot water circulates from the engine and through the heater core then back to engine generating heat for your heater system.

To many steps to list here, would recomend purchasing a shop manual if you intend on replacing that heater core yourself.

If "heater coil" is just another term for "Heater core", then yes, most all cars have them.See "Related Questions" below for tons of information about Taurus / Sable heater cores.

Why would you be removing the dash. Heater Coil? There is a black box on the passenger side by the firewall. 6 screws and the Heater Coil is in there.

The heater coil is leaking. Water from the cooling system runs through the heater coil to heat the passenger compartment. Antifreeze is corrosive, some heater coils are thin.

The heater core is inside the HVAC housing, under the dash.

unscrew the plastics piece under the glove box right above where your feet would be and the heater coil is in there. you will have to disconnect the hoses from under the hood right in front of the passenger side. there are only 2 hoses connected to it. then just put in a new heater coil and reattach the hoses and screw it back up. all done.

Hi Do you mean heater coil, or heater CORE? Im am going to try one tomorrow or the next day. By the manual it does not seem too bad, but you may need a special tool to disconnect the heater hose from the core.

Heater core plugged? Heater core airbound? Thermostat not opening to allow coolant flow?

Yes, it is very possible that a heater coil is clogged up or even needs replaced if the windows are fogging up. An auto parts store can give you the price for a new heater coil.
