This is the directional flowing of coolant in the cooling system, taken from the 1997 XJ FSM.
Now my question/ concern is about the heater hoses. There is a upper and a lower coming out of the heater core, according to the picture the upper is the outgoing while the lower is the in going coolant flow. In the picture the upper(outgoing) hose connects respectively to the bottom of the water pump, and the lower(incoming) hose connects respectively to the upper part of the water pump. So basically they kinda crisscross. Ok now that i am done explaining to yal what you already know or can depict from the picture.
My hoses do no do this. The upper hose coming out of the heater core goes to the top of the water pump and the lower hose goes to the bottum. So why are they different from the FSM? Does anybody know which direction the coolant is flowing through those hoses? Which one is flowing in to the heater core and which one is flowing out?
Edit: Sorry that pic is a little to small ill see if i can resize it
Edit x2: There ya go its bigger and easier to see now.
