Re: 2001 Heater Core inside connection

Here is a picture of the clamp Fdryer's diagram shows. The clamp shown with the red arrow is lifted to remove the fitting.

Re: Mystery skipping issue

Re: Heater core bypass

I assume your heater core is leaking?

As a stop gap measure, you are simply returning the coolant back to the engine. To do this, use a long loop of either 5/8"s or 3/4" heater hose. Make the...

Re: L300 by mistake. What do I have?

Looks to be a very nice wagon. Only negative I see is that it is a northern car that likely has been driven on salted roads. These cars are prone to rust on the front and rear sub frames.
