Question about 1993 Chevrolet Corsica

1 Answer

Heater core? I drove into my drive way and noticed my car dumping radiator fluid, like a gallon or more. I popped my hood on my 93 chevy corsica and found behind my engine next to where I put freon in there is what looks like a dump hose gushing radiator fluid. I had a smell of radiator fluid when I got closer to the house and what looked like musty smoke was coming out of my air vents. And I dont know what the cause or the solution is to this mess.

Have a flow test done on the radiator as it appears likely that you have blocked cores and the water is not circulating and cooling properly. It is even possible that the heater core in the cabin is also blocked Have a pressure test done on the coolant system to find the leaks.

You could have a leak coming from the intake or even the heads. Before digging into those difficult items, I'd check all of your freeze plugs for damage/wear/rust/leaks.

Where is the heater core located on a 1994 chevy corsica?


the heater core for this vehicles located behind the glove box on passenger side.in order to remove it,you will need to be mechanically inclined.are you?do you have the tools to do so?8mm sockets and ratchet? you will need patience! if not,i recommend you ask your mechanic to replace it. but 1st i will ask these questions. is it the heater core? is fluid leaking onto the passenger side floorboard? that's one sign of a bad heater core. no heat? have you checked the fluid level in your radiator? does your cooling fan come on when the engine's at operating temperature? if not, then it may be a bad temperature sensor at the radiator. it may also be a bad fan relay in the main fuse box under the hood in the main fuse box[black box w/lid under the hood.lift the cover off of it and under the lid,it tells you fuse and the relay locations.if you turn your a/c on and the fan comes on,and does'nt come on when the engine gets hot,the fan sensor may be bad.the fan sensor that tells the fan to come on when the engines running hot. thank you,for choosing fixya,com!

Hello: There are two metal pipes on the back of the engine thar carry the coolant from the driver side of the engine to the heater core and back to the engine. It is possible they may be rusted out. Also it could be head gasket failure, When it comes out check the coolant overflow tank on the passenger side under the hood and see/hear if it is gurgling. The overflow tank hose may be stopped up or it could be the wrong radiator cap. Hope this will give you a place to start. The radiator cap should be rated at 15psi

Chevy S10 overheated, now heat doesn't work, leaking coolant


When an engine is overheating and then the temp drops on the guage, it's usually a sign that the coolant is not touching the temp sensor. There's no coolant in the engine. Putting water in the overflow tank won't solve this. Take the radiator cap off after the engine cools and put coolant in the radiator. you might have to crank the engine and do this several times, as the engine can develop air pockets that won't allow the coolant to travel inside the engine. If you don't see any leaks, and it still uses coolant, you've probably got a blown head gasket. Check for water on the plugs, check cylinder compression. If it slowly uses coolant, try putting a large box of pepper in the radiator or some of that radiator seal copper flakes.
