Where is the heater core? Unfortunately, the heater core is way up under the dash.

From the engine compartment side, look for the 2 heater hoses coming "through" the firewall, right about dead-center.

What about pictures? Since WikiAnswers doesn't 'do' photos/images, you could refer to:

  • Old-fashioned paper manuals - library or a $20 investment that will help with future repairs
  • Online for free -
    • various automotive oriented forums like Edmunds.com, AutomotiveForums.com, etc
    • Autozone offers a free Repair Guide - may have illustrations of the Windstar heating/cooling
  • Online for pay - there's a bunch of those too. AllData is one that I know of.

I really don't know what you mean by a diagram. D you mean an exploded view of the dash? I have worked for Ford for years, and I have never seen such an animal. Are you trying to replace your heater core? All instructions to do that in all Ford service manuals are in text, with very few pictures.

Answer

There is a mechanic who found a way to do it without dash removal, in 1996-1999 Taurus / Sables.

* Library - you can review a number of manuals they'll have for the procedure - use the copy machine to get the relevant pages to take home and get all greasy.

* Haynes or Chiltons manuals are around $15 (US) and a great investment if you do much of your own repair and maintenance work. Check any auto parts or book stores for these.

Start with the "Related Question" below - this is an excellent starting point to extensive coverage and information on Taurus/Sable heating & cooling problems and fixes -including the heater core procedures & options.

Answer

I have found the the easiest and least expensive way to find any diagram for replacing parts is in the local library, go to the reference section, get the haynes or Chiltons book that corresponds to your car. look in the index under heating and cooling. and find the step by step instructions with pictures, diagrams, etc. copy them on the library copy machine, and take them home. Saves money.

Answer

Getting the dash out is the worst of it all: do yourself a favor and either purchase the Haynes or Chilton's manual for about $18, or visit your local library and copy the dash removal instruction pages from the manuals they'll you look at for free! :)

The heater switch is located in the middle of the car in the 1998 Ford Taurus. It is either above or below the radio.?รฆ

The Taurus does not have a heater control valve. Coolant flows through the core at all times. Be sure to review the "Related Question" below for much more about Taurus temperature controls

You can find heater vacuum line diagrams for your Chevy van in most Chevrolet service manuals. The service manuals can be found at your local library.

The "Related Link" below has extensive information, illustrations, photos and diagrams for the 1990-1995 heating/cooling systems.This does not look like an easy under-taking, with all the airflow directions being controlled by separate vacuum controls. Oh yeah, and the dash has to come out.

The Mercury Tracer heater core can be found behind the passenger side kick plate. The heater core can be removed by disconnecting the water supply lines and removing the retaining bolts.
