Heater Core Hose Question

Sorry to post two questions in a row, but the topics aren't really connected.

Does it matter what heater hose goes where on the firewall? I have the hose from the engine to the lower post on the firewall. I have the lower post connected to a hose that goes to the manifold.

The reasons I ask is because somebody told me they were backwards and suggested I switch them. Personally, I don't think it matters either; coolant will still flow through the core.

Re: Heater Core Hose Question

I feel the same way too about where the hose goes, but i have read on here that is does make a difference. Which hose goes where, i couldnt tell you. But try doing a search, i know we had a long post about this, maybe a year ago.
