99 Taurus with Vulcan, HEATER QUESTION
Like many others who own similar cars, the heater can be an issue. In my last 99 Taurus, I installed ball valves in the heater lines along with a couple of drain cocks. This allowed me to be able to back flush the heater core in a mater of minutes.
But there is something that does bother me. The 99 Taurus I just took off the road.......it had everything going to pot especially body rot. I covered a 10" diameter hole in the floor at the drivers side with a piece of 3/4" plywood.
That car's heater bypass hose was gone! Either somebody took it off or some Taurus had bypasses and others did not. But my question--- what harm, trouble do I risk if I remove the bypass? It would definitely force more flow through the heater.
