coolant leaking under my dash

Have a 94 F150 w/302 and I have coolant leaking under my glovebox area inside the cab. Anyone have any clues? I'm hoping it's just a fitting or a hose, I haven't taken it apart yet so any help will be great.

Re: coolant leaking under my dash

It sounds like your heater core has gone out. I can't remember if the dash has to come out to install it in your model truck or not. Good luck!

On my 86

it was a 20 minute job with a 5/16" nut driver, 1/4" ratchet and a philips screwdriver.

Haynes manual outlines it very well

Heater cores are common problem on late model broncos.
Saw a bullitin on it at a ford dealer.


Good luck

Gotta be the heater core since thats the only thing that will cause coolant to leak inside your truck.

2 Broncos is right

There is a restrictor for one of the heater hoses the TSB said to add and that should stop high rpms from killing the heater cores as fast as they do.

Try Bars coolant sealant. That stuff is amazing at stopping leaks. Repaired a leak in my system with only 1 can. And it's cheap.

Re: coolant leaking under my dash

thought about trying some sort of stop leak, but have never used it before and wasn't sure if it would work. Do you think it would work for the heater core?

Re: coolant leaking under my dash

I like the "stop leak" idea, it is cheap and I've seen it work a few times with radiators, gas tanks, ect... So it's worth a try, heck of a lot cheeper, and less headache too.

Re: coolant leaking under my dash

For a heater core I would just r/r. Most places will sell you a lifetime jobber for $20 and stop leak can stop-up your radiator's core costing you mo'money. Most Fords (trucks)take less than an hour to change. I changed the 93 bronco's in the snow in about 20 minutes.........
