Automotive heating systems take the hot antifreeze and pass it through a small radiator called a heater core. Air is forced over the core and blown out the vents to heat the vehicle's interior.Heater cores can be located either in the cab for models with air conditioning or in the engine compartment for those without an A/C.
No matter where the heater core is located, follow the same basic steps. First, remove the cable from the negative battery terminal. Wait until the engine has cooled down, then drain the antifreeze from the radiator. Save the antifreeze if it's not old so you can put it back into the radiator after replacing the Ford heater core. Remove the heater hoses at the firewall but leave the engine-side connections attached.
Hope it may work.

I have a 95 Aerostar and have a coolant leak where the heater hoses go into the firewall. There is a 3-port tee there. What is it and how do I change it?
