Can I get a part for a 1994 Taurus heater?

Asked by Jan 24, 2011 at 04:06 PM about the 1994 Ford Taurus GL

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Where can I get the elbow that connects the lower manifold to the two heater hoses?
The dealers say Ford quit making them. After market doesn't have them. Junk yards don't want to sell them in-case they sell the motor or radiator -since you need the elbow for heat. It's cold in Cleveland (regardless of what the new TV show is called).

Start calling salvage yards buddy

Salvage yard, or even see if your local part's store has something generic, Junkyard would be your best bet I'd say.

well i think it's stupid that the junkyard won't pull it for ya, i'd guess that you should go to a u-pull

Thanks to all who recommended a salvage (junk) yard. The guy at the yard told me not to even mess around...go to a hardware store and get a 'T' with 3/8" pipe threads, a 3/8" threaded nipple (to screw into the exhaust manifold) and a 3/8" male barb (for the hose). The sensor for the gauge (still good) threads into the top of the 'T'. Total $8.95. My Taurus has heat!!
