When your heater core goes bad, generally it leaks inside the car and can leave a odor of antifreeze. It can effect colling of the engine...so I would change it.

It is behind the dash..but not a huge deal..take your time some saturday afternoon & youll have it

95 Camaro Z28 appears to be leaking antifreeze from the hose or hoses that run to the heater core. The hoses are rubber but appear to connect to metal lines then back to rubber before they go into the...


if your rubber hoses are cracked and leaking then replace the hoses with proper size and length.
if the hoses are leaking where they connect to the metal fittings from the heater core then try and tighten up the hose clamps -- they could just be loose.

1986 chevy camaro heater core. Do i have to pull the dash to work on heater core


Sorry to hear you're having problems with this.
In short YES you HAVE to remove the dashboard.

Please take many digital pics along the way and save the bolts that are alike in sandwich bags. Save all bolts in bags of some kind - having a camera will save you a lot of pulled out hair - seriously - use a camera if possible. Pros do until they know the procedure well.
I personally remove the passenger seat but most people don't - todays seats are easy so I pull them out.

Best of it

Fuel pressure? Do you hear the fuel pump running? Read the codes to see if ECM is still alive. Do you have spark at the plugs? Remember all motors need 3 things to run air, fuel, and fire at the right time.
