So I'm currently in the process of gutting a 2005 E350 (a former wheelchair van with a raised roof) to turn it into a camper van. As part of this process, I went about removing the back heater. In what was probably not the most intelligent decision of my life, I sliced the coolant line just below the heater and looked on in confusion as radiator fluid poured onto the ground (I was expecting to just slice a few electrical wires...).
So... now what?
I'm searching all over the place for some kind of diagram of the cooling/heating system to figure out where the hose I cut goes. Looking under the hood, it seems to go... places. It would be nice if it were relatively isolated, and I could just pop some caps on the ends of the lines and refill the coolant. Or if it were completely isolated and I could just ignore the thing.
