SOURCE: 1999 Chev Venture Heater core do I need to remove

The blower motor location can change from year-to-year. It can also change with the trim level of the vehicle. A vehicle that has front and rear climate controls may be configured differently than a vehicle that has front controls only. The following are two different repair procedures. One is for blower motors located and accessed in the engine compartment, the other is for blower motors mounted inside the vehicle.


Engine Compartment Mounted

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the engine air cleaner assembly.
  3. If necessary for clearance, remove the left hand wiper arm linkage.
  4. Detach the wire harness connector from the blower motor.
  5. Disconnect the motor cooling hose.
  6. Remove the blower motor assembly retaining screws
  7. Carefully pull the blower motor assembly out from the firewall.

SOURCE: how to replace heater core in 2002 chev s-10

Well first, if your talking about the radiator hoses when you say the bottom hose is warm and the top is cold, that would suggest to me a stuck thermostat. If not, then the heater core is located inside the truck under the dash. You can follow the heater hoses under the hood to the firewall and that will tell you where, under the dash the core is located. It is kind of a big job, as all the under dash covers will need to come out as well as the glove box. The heater core is inside the heater box, a black plastic box that will also need to be removed. It is important to note that when you are reinstalling the heater box after you change the core, it must be completely sealed, either with RTV or two sided insulating tape.

Air works fine on 97 Lincoln continental but heat does not work

Probably needs a heater core replacement. Check and make sure your coolant level is good. There are two hoses that enter the passenger side firewall. With the engine at operating temperature feel both hoses. If both are about the same temo the core is fine. If one is hot and the other is cool then heater core is clogged and will need to be flushed or replaced. Replacement is very expensive on most vehicles. The part is usually cheap...around $50...the labor is high. The entire dash board of the car has to be removed to replace the heater core. Most vehicles take around 10 hours of labor time to do.

Average price to replace heater core

This is a major job. Accessing the HVAC module where the heater core resides requires discharging the A/C system, removing the dashboard, steering column, and heater box. The labor is just over 6 hours. Add in the cost of coolant and refrigerant and you've got a big bill coming....and unfortunately, one that most DIYers can't take on by themselves. Labor rates run $80.00 - $100.00 hour depending on shop. Some services can be packaged to save money, such as the recover-recharge A/C system, drain/refill cooling system. Be careful, however, because shops use a industy-standard book rate for these jobs to determine hours to charge. The hours listed for this job should include the coolant drain/refill and A/C discharge/recharge labor if they are required. If the shop offers you package prices, ensure that they are adjusting labor time for the core R/R and not double-billing you on the labor for those package items.

I need diagram to to change heater core in chev silverado

I really wouldn't recommend that you try to take on this project yourself. Mitchell sets the labor time at 6.3 to 7.4 hours depending on options in the vehicle. This application requires the dash to be disassembled and removed from the vehicle to access the HVAC assembly. For a DIYer it you could easily spend 2 or more days. Additionally GM states that it is necessary to disconnect the evaporator core lines in order to remove the heater core. This means evacuating and recharging the A/C system afterwards. I strongly recommend that you take this to a professional to have it done. If you still feel like you want to attempt it, make a comment and I'll get you some images, but once again, I wouldn't suggest anyone other than a professional undertake this job.

2002 ford taurus - need to replace heater core. do you have to remove the entire dash or is there a short cut? also is $600 including labor at a shop a typical price for this job?

The labor time to replace the heater core is 5.5 hours if equipped with a center console, and 5.0 hours without. Multiply this by the shops hourly rate and you have the labor time. Ex: 5.0 x $100.00 per hr. = $500 labor plus parts. The heater core will be approx. $100.00 (Ford # F80Z-18476-AA) and coolant will be approx. $25.00. Labor times will vary depending on the labor book but should not vary by more than 1/2 hour. Sometimes a coolant flush and thermostat replacement may be recommended. Flushing can run $100 and a thermostat should cost no more than $25.00 plus .8 hours.

As far as shortcuts, the dash does have to be removed but could be partially pulled back. This should be done by an experienced person since costly damage could occur. Good luck.

What is the cost to put a new heater core in?

It should cost somewhere around $600.00 for parts and labor. Obviously, this depends greatly for the labor rate your shop charges. The price for the heater core is about $88.00, and about 5 hours to install at about $100.00 per hour.

I have a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee w/115,000 miles on it. It seems like the defroster vent is kicking up some kind of oily film onto the windshield. What could be causing that? Someone told me that the...

Not a bad gasket, as there is no gasket. The heater core has developed a small leak and needs to be replaced or repaired. This is a big job, as the entire dash has to come out of the Jeep. The cost of the part is $77 at autozone, but the labor is several hours at a good shop. We have the procedure and can send it if you would like to do this job yourself. Just let me know.

Does a replacement of the heater core diagram exist? how do i replace the heater core. I have a mechanical background.

Most Jeeps require removal of the dash board to accomlish a heater core replacement. It isn,t really hard to do, but is a hundred times more difficult if you don't have access to A/C evac/recharge equipment. The service manuals give step-by-step instructions, usually with pictures, on how to do this. If you want GOOD, RELIABLE information on your particuler model, you can purchase a one year, single vehicle subscription of AllData for $26.95. Click the link below to go to AllData.

It's not free, but it is the same information used by professional shops and costs a lot less than paying shop labor. (The usual labor time for replacing heater cores in most Jeeps is 6 to 7 hours.)

What is the easiest way to replace the heater core in a 2002 mitsubishi diamante

2002 diamante heater core sits in center of the dashboard just over the on board computer for the car. To access it you need to take out the console between the seats and the entire dashboard to get to it. The only thing wrong with the heater core is the leaking gaskets (about $10 in parts). Mitsubishi knows about the problem and when the dash is taken apart you will see a plastic sheet over the onboard computer to somewhat protect it from the leaking heater core gaskets. So the expense in the repair is in the labor to get it all apart and back together again. The dealers seem to replace entire heater core when they fix this problem. I did just the gaskets and that solved the problem. I have read others who did it themselves only replaced the gaskets and that solved it for them as well. Maybe the dealers think you will feel better replacing a larger part for so much labor.
