I replaced the heater core on a 04 4-cyl Ranger in the dead of winter. It req'd removing the entire dashboard. When I noted the antifreeze aroma in the cab of my 94 V6 Ranger, I was in no hurry to replace it. I disconnected the heater hoses from the core tubes & spliced them together in September. It's November now; I need some heat. I checked my manual again only to learn there is an access panel in the cab of the 94. I finished the job in less than 30 min. Clear windows & warm hands!!

      It fits perfectly and was pretty easy to install myself. It arrived way ahead of projected delivery date. It works perfectly.

                  End caps are not original specs, I had to modify my foam protective caps to make it fit. Slightly bigger than orig. equipment

                    replaced core in my Ranger in '06. Not a peep or drop out of this sucker. Great product, matched up with original almost dead on.

                        For help with your project, I recommend getting a repair manual specifically for your vehicle. It should be able to help you with detailed instructions on how to do many things.

                        A:

                        Your heater core most likely became clogged due to either the stop leak or another factor. Another possible cause is that just the heater valve became clogged or just isnt opening.
