Heat heat heat oh and PVC

I have a never ending supply if heat blowing in floor board. I change all settings and still heat at my feet.

How can I make it stop?

Also I've searched with no luck but I remember a guy making a PVC center support for the top to help keep water from pooling up and stuff. Anyone have that link handy?

Thanks
Brandon

Sounds like your blend door isn't working right. Its under the dash on the left if I remember right.

And as for the PVC support the basic idea is:

Get two T's or one X. Say 3" to 1/2"(these numbers are estimated. You'll need to figure out how big you need it for your spreader bars. And a length of appropriate pipe size(this is the part that will bend)

Cut the top of the T off to form a cup(this will go on the spreader bars) or cut the X in half. File down the edges so you don't hurt the padding.

Stick on end of your pipe in one side and bend it to where you think you'll want the bend to be. If you make a mark where the fitting on the other side starts, add an extra 1/2" to the cut so you keep the same bow you decided on.

I don't have the link or I'd post it. You can probably search for it though.

Every Jeep I've owned, and the several others that have been in my family have always put some kind of heat out, regardless of blend door position or climate control setting. I know how you feel. I believe it to be radiating heat from the transmission through the floor boards. Take off the doors and you won't notice the heat anymore.

Yep especially when you take the carpet out and Rhino line it.
I made heat sheilds to cover most of the exhaust, it helps some but still gets hot.

  1. Leave the heater core in place.
  2. Disconnect the heater core hoses at the thermostat housing on your engine.
  3. Use a bypass hose to connect the two heater hose openings on your thermostat housing unit.
  4. Drain your heater hoses in an environmentally friendly way and disconnect them from the heater core at the fire wall.
  5. Cap off your heater core inlets using plastic or rubber caps. Try auto parts store or online or use duct tape.
  6. Store heater hoses and clamps in a cool, dry place.
  7. ???
  8. Profit.
