Why does the bypass line on the heating system have to be there?

Asked by Feb 10, 2013 at 07:59 AM about the Ford Taurus

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The bypass is there to make sure your engine does not overheat in case the heater core plugs up. If you have flushed yours and are still not getting adequate heat, you may have a lot of large rusty particles jammed solidly in there

You don't say kitkatam but I have a feeling it is a 99

On everything but the '99 Bob, it's as simple as what you said, it diverted the coolant when not in use .......but Ford got whacky that one year with the heater core hose routing

Where is the Chrysler LEO? we have the Taurus, the Aries, abarth/fiat uses the scorpion think was it ford that had the Scorpio?

the Taurus is a not so good car. MOST have transmission troubles.

...think that's because most owners do not see the importance of using the Parking Brake, and not torturing the parking pawl. I have a friend with a taurus, try to explain this, am ripping my hair out for his lack of understanding.
