Customer Question
Can you send me...

Can you send me instruction on replacing a heater core for a ford five hundred 2005

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the coolant level? Has there been any leaking from the hoses?

I have already replaced the radiator and flushed the system and had it pressure tested and the heater core is 50% blocked

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Five Hundred yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes

I have enclosed the heater core removal steps for you in the link below as well as the instrument panel which has to come off for access. Have a look and post back if there is any other steps you will need and I can post those for as well.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
