    Your correct the and that's what we did. The hose connection was removed and a new plastic hose connection was installed using this tool.

Not usualy but if you know someone who can make an internal or external sleeve out of copper and silicon seal it into place you may be able to patch it up.also depends how much of the plastic is left to work with.

Flushing the heater core


I removed the hoses and took a air nozzle at low pressure and blew in the return hose connection of the core. A big chunk of paste like substance shot out then pure liquid. I put the hoses back on and tested it. Now its blowing hot!!!!!!!

At idle, Heater Core Return Line is flowing only


two things--first replace your cabin air filter.second reverse flush your heater core with a garden hose and that should remove the build up of material in your heater core and restore the flow,hope this helps

I have a 1995 gmc sierra 2500 when i step on the brakes it wants to die and the power brakes go out but it never dies just starts sputtering and acting up


There is a vacuum leak in the vacuum hose system causing the problem. Verify all vacuum hoses. Especially the rubber parts connecting plastic hose to the joints. The high temperature causes these rubbers cracked no longer sealing properly with aging plastice hoses.

I have a heater core leak on my 2000 chevy silverado V6, is there an easy fix?


You can bypass the heater core, you just wont have heat anymore. On the firewall of the truck, behind the engine, you will see 2 rubber heater hoses that go into the firewall. They attach to the heater core. Disconnect them and get a plastic connector, and connect the 2 hoses together with clamps to hold them down. This will stop coolant from going into the heater core, and no more leak.

2000 gmc sierra 5.3l heater does not get hot


After replacing the thermostat I pulled the heater hoses off and blew air through the heater core at firewall. Can only blow in left side as directional valves will prevent opposite. Chunks of stuff came out with coolant. I then put a piece of hose on the left side and shot water through until it came out clear.
Put it all back together and heat works fine.

2000 GMC Sierra 5.3 Litre, won't blow hot air


I experienced the same head ache. First attempt was to replace the thrmostat and after taking it apart I realized that there was nothing wrong with it. I then removed the plastic cover/panel located under the dash board on the passenger's side. (only a few 4-5 smalls screws) Removal will enable you to see the on/off switch/gate moving/rotating as you turn the knob to hot or cold positions, on the control panel. If that switch/gate seems to work ok, then the trouble is within the heater core. Many mechanincs suggested that I replace the heater core. A very expensive proposition.
I checked the heater core supply/intake hose and found it hot to the touch, while the return hose was nearly cold. It was definitely a heater core blockage. I removed both ends (supply and return) hose connections/clamps. They are located near the fire wall in the engine compartment. A special tool is very helpful to remove those clamps easily and to replace them as well. It can be done the old fashion way but this tool was a life saver and reduced work time to just minutes. (Tool is $70.00 bucks at auto parts store,so I borrowed mine from a mechanic/friend)
I then hooked up a garden hose to the return end of the heater core and reversed the flow of coolant/water through the heater core. My truck is a Sierra 2000 and I refuse to see how a heater core could get clogged up with clear coolant alone. To my surprise a flat piece of rubber about the size of a quarter blew out of it and the flow of water became unobstructed. I reconected the ends of the hoses to the heater core, replaced the lost antifreeze & everything returned back to normal. No money spent for something most mechanics suggested I replace control valves/switches ($280.00) replace heater core ($500.00) etc etc. I am glad I was curageous enough to tackle this myself and save a few pennies. Good luck, and I hope this will work for you.
