Hello forum,

Having a little bit of trouble with my 1995 EF Fairmont, it's spitting out coolant but I can't describe where its coming from (see attached photo).


Thanks for any help in advance

That black spout is the heaterbox drain...

I'd say you have one busted heater core there man...

Cheers,
Tim

If you want bypass the heater core as a temporary option so you can still drive the car around. It will be a dash out job pain in the a*** repair.

Yep...

At least its summer time... You can organised and prepare for the job... Things like getting the ac degassed prior and getting the core itself and finding the motivation to do it...

Cheers,
Tim
