Where is the heating coil located on a 1988 Grand Marquis?

I Have A 90 Marquis My Heater Core Was Behind The Fire Wall And Under The Dash Somewhere Behind The Glovebox. I Was Told The Whole Dashboard Would Have To Come Off To Replace It. For $400 I Couldnt Do It So I Jus Bought A Nice Sized Coat To Ride Out The Cold Mornings With. Hope I Helped!

=====================================================

The above answer is pretty good but if you'd like some more detail read on!

There is a box of sorts which is located behind the passengers' side of the dash. Inside this box there are two heat exchangers. One which has hot engine coolant running through it for heating the air, the other is used by the A/C to cool the air. From your dash controls you select if you want heat or cooling and where to direct the air (windshield, vents, floor) and inside the box 'trap door' like flaps open and close to accomplish what you requested.

This box is bolted to the firewall (firewall is simply the sheet metal between you and the engine). If you open your hood and examine the passengers' side of the firewall behind the engine you should be able to find where 4 hoses are attached. Two of these hoses carry the hot coolant to and from the heater core, the other two carry the 'Freon' like gas to and from the A/C evaporator to cool the air. And if you look closely you may spot the bolts or studs that attach the heater box to the firewall.

Now if you were able to find everything, it starts to explain why changing the heater core which is inside that heater box is soo expensive! To get to the heater box parts of, if not all of, the dash have to be removed. Then there are wires and cables attached to the box which have to be carefully marked and removed without damaging them. From the engine bay the four hoses (BE CAREFUL!!! ENGINE COOLANT IS VERY HOT FOR HOURS AFTER THE ENGINE IS SHUT OFF AND CAN CAUSE SEVERE THIRD DEGREE BURNS, USE CAUTION!!!) must be removed. The A/C lines should be purged by a certified licensed mechanic to avoid release of gasses to the atmosphere (which is environmentally BAD and ILLEGAL too). Then the box must be unbolted from the firewall and removed from the vehicle. Once the box is out then you must disassemble the box to the point where you can remove the old heater core and install the new one also being careful to not damage any sealing gaskets around the heater core or box covers removed to gain access.

Whew!

You just replaced your heater core! Congratulations! But wait you still have to mount the box to the firewall, attach all hoses, cables, wires, replace lost coolant by filling the radiator, and have your A/C recharged!

On my 1988 Marquis, in September 2007, I was quoted $600 for this job by a local gas station, with a good reputation, on Long Island, NY.

Oh, and to explain as to why heater cores need to be replaced there are several reasons. Poor quality part to begin with, corrosion from not replacing engine coolant as per service schedule (few people realize that engine coolant becomes corrosive with age) or just a lot of years of service. A 1988 vehicle is now almost 20 years old! Two signs of a leaking heater core are a chokingly sick sweet vapor coming out your vents or the tell tale puddle on the carpet under the passengers' side dash.

One final note of caution: MOST ENGINE COOLANT IS TOXIC IF INGESTED!

ADULTS, CHILDREN, and PETS WILL DIE IF SWALLOWED!!! Do not dump anti-freeze anywhere. Take it to your local gas station or a town recycling center for proper disposal.

OK, how many of you that have read this are getting the yellow pages out to make an appointment to have it done professionally?!

Or if your adventurous... get at it!

Where is the jiggle valve on a Jeep Cherokee?

The jiggle valve's a small hole on the thermostat itself (not a separate part). It's merely there to help free the system of trapped air. Follow the hose from the top of the radiator to the motor and you should find the thermostat housing. Removing the housing will reveal the thermostat and at the top of the Tstat should be a small hole -- that would be the jiggle valve (if your thermostat actually has one).

When replacing the AC evaporator in a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee are there any other components that need to be changed?

the receiver dryer and the orifice tube My 95 had a styrofoam liner in the evaporator box that had crumbled with age and plugged up not only the drain tube but the vent tubes. I would replace that as well as long as you have the dash apart. It is not a must but Personally I would consider replacing the heater core since you have to remove it to get the evaporator out anyway.

What would cause the cooling fan on my 99 jeep grand Cherokee to keep running after the engine is off it ran all night and now the battery is dead?

AnswerThe problem is most likely a blown fan relay, not expensive at all. It can also be the thermostat sensor, this is use to activate the relay, neither part is expensive and if you have simple knowledge you can change it yourself in less than 30 minutes .

How do you change the headlight bulbs on a 2000 Grand Cherokee After removing what appears to be the retaining bolt on top of lens assembly I still cant remove assembly to change bulbs?

There are some umm what do you call them pop in holders that keep the light from just falling out when you remove that bolt. Its pretty simple once you get it out.. to put it back in you have to kind of pop it back in place. The rear has the same type pop in holders pull one of those off to see what i am talking about...

How do you remove the headlight assembly located on a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee Larado.?

This is only marginally useful for 1999 to 2004. It is not applicable to 1996 to 1998 as returned in search.

For 1999 to 2004, open the hood, and using a 7mm socket remove the long headlamp jackscrew, located as shown in the photo above, 2nd from left. Grasp the headlight assembly on the upper inboard and lower outboard corners and wiggle and pull very firmly outward to disengage the 3 ball stud alignment posts from their sockets (be cautious of the sharp edges of the grille and fender areas surrounding the headlamp).

Replacement of Jeep Cherokee Headlight

There is a bulb that plugs into a socket dirctly behind the headlight. In order to access it you must lift the hood. Next, you will have to remove the plastic ring that holds the socket in the rear of the headlight housing. Twist the ring CCW (if you are facing the front of the vehicle)until it becomes loose and pull the socket and bulb through the hole. Then using a small flat tipped screwdriver lift out the little tab that holds the lightbulb on the socket and pull the bulb straight out from the socket. {Note: Pay Close Attention to the direction the plastic ring came out from, it is a pain to get back on if you don't. It will only go on one way...to hold the socket in place}

How do you change the transmission fluid on a '94 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 147K miles on it?

Since it is so high mileage I think I would just pull the pan and change the 4-6 quarts that are in the pan and replace the filter. If you go to a place that flushes transmissions, I have known that with the new fluid the lining comes off of the fiber plates.

. use atf+4 from Chrysler dealer or it destroys the clutches.

How do you install a headlight switch on a 97 Jeep Grand Cherokee?

My son's went out, and here's how he did it. You'll have to remove the dashboard panels (look for the exposed screws). When you get to the headlight switch, reach to the right side of the switch itself (behind the dash); there's a release button there. Press it as you pull the plunger completely out. The hole where the plunger went in has large Phillips head slots; put a screwdriver in it and turn left and completely remove. The switch is now loose; disconnect it on the left from the wiring harness plug.

How do you remove the radiator plug on a 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee?

Sometimes the plug gets stuck pretty hard in the radiator and removal will damage the radiator. Just pull the lower rad hose and you will do the same thing.

Even though the Plug has a rib/tab down the middle making you think it is threaded into the radiator...in reality it is just a molded plug with rubber o-rings that pushes straight in and pulls straight out. So to remove it (although it is probably better to just remove the hose) just grasp the rib and pull straight out while maybe twisting back and forth.

How does one change the running light bulb in a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee?

I believe all 93-98 Grand Cherokees are the same but basically you just pull and pry (gently of course) until the whole headlight pulls...well pops really...out. Then you have access to the back of it to change the bulb and it just pushes back in. It is a little tricky and i think a screwdriver works best but really be careful what your prying against because most of it is plastic and can crack. Taking this out will also give you access to the screws holding the parking/turn signal lights.

I've got a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo V8 w/ Quadtrac & have had to replace some light bulbs in it. To get the headlight off, you have to unscrew the top screw which is in the corner closest to the fender, and then there's another screw between the headlight & the front blinker even though there's absolutely no room. I could find no way to get a screwdriver or any other took to fit in there & the repair shop had no idea how to replace it. I was told by a friend that you can get an Allen wrench in there? I ended up breaking the brackets for the bottom screws on both headlights, but you can keep the headlight staying in with just the top screw.

Your interior light on your 1997 Grand Jeep Cherokee wont turn off it must be a wiring problem but what?

also check the door switches, they normally look like plungers, and should depress when the door closes, sometimes they dont work and leave the lights on

Answercheck the turn signal/lights switch

check the switch on the dash next to the steering wheel make shure its not all the way up i have made the same mistake

On some newer vehicles the door switches are incorporated into the door latch Assembly, thus omitting the common plunger type switches that we are used to, so then with these new style switches they communicate with the door computer that communicate with the lighting control module causing the interior light to come on and go off, in most cases makes it impossible for the do it yourself mechanic to properly diagnose the actual problem, so if you cant find the plunger style switch on your car the best bet is to have the dealer or reputable garage to scan the lighting module or the body control module for a code which will let them know where the problem actually is, hope this helps try pull neg batt cable 1 minute it will reset body control module
