That would work if you wanted to stop flow. But for a leak, I would need one of those valves on both sides of lines to prevent back flow. Also I'm not sure if stopping flow would change anything in engine flow/cooling, causing dead ends or dead spots. It would be nice to hear from a Ford engineer on this question, because in summer I choke off my front heater core, approx. 70-90% with a manual valve.
