Question about 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee
2002 Grand Cherokee 4.7 HO V-8 - There is a stong smell of antifreeze when I turn on the heat. I have been told it is a head gasket leak and I have also been told it is a bad heater core. It also sounds like something is opening and closing in the dash on the passenger side of the car when the heat is on. Any ideas?
If it's the heater core, how hard is that to replace?
A good indication that the heater core is bad, is if you get a oily film on the windshield when the defroster is on. If the headgasket is leaking, the engine should run hotter than normal,you might get oil in the radiator,you might see coolant dripping down the engine. I would start with checking out the heater core first. It is a very big job(the dash has to come out).
