Specifically where is the heater core located on a 96 Buick Skylark 4 cyl. w/air?


Hi there,

Well the heater core is located under the dash on the passenger side, usually cased in a plastic housing.You may have to remove the glove box in order to have access to. And when you get to the point, when you are disconnecting the coolant lines and remove the core you use some clothes to protect the carpet as fluid may drip. Post comments for further help or information........
Good Luck!!
Thanks for using FixYa!!

Hello I Have a 96 Skylark and the engine is filled with a muddy goop substance


Hi,
When the oil is contaminated by coolant it will foam or change color and from your description it sure sounds like that's what happened.
Sorry but it may need major repairs.

Glad to be of assistance. Please rate the solution offered - I will learn from your rating
Thank you

I have had the key cylinder changed twice on my 96 Buick Skylark Grand Sport and still having the same trouble. The car will start, it runs for about 3 seconds and shuts off with the theft system light on. I have reset the computer time and again and the car WILL run great for a day or two and then it gets back into the same routine. Is there a way to bypass the theft system? If so... PLEASE help me out before I take a hammer to it.
