HEATER CONTROL VALVE

1995 Ford Explorer

Heater problem
1995 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 220000 miles

My radiator is losing coolant and I've noticed my heater control valve to be dripping. I'm running my heater and seem to have to re-fill my radiator with a couple quarts every 2-3 days. Is this my only problem? I replaced my thermostat and heater core last year. Heater control valve was replaced 2-3 years ago. Water seems to be recirculating otherwise. Will replacing the control valve solve this problem or might I have other issues?

Hi there,

Replace the faulty valve and then have a pressure test done to check for any other external coolant leaks.
