    My Heater core is busted. Can I bypass it by redirecting the hoses from radiator? Is so, what is the best way to route hoses.

    take one heater hose off completely, and take the other one off the heater core and put it on the other heater hose-nipple, I hope thats clear enough!

    You can bypass it but you're gonna be cold! /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif The core costs less than $30 from most places and there's a good article by Grim in the technical section that tells ya how to swap it out. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
