2000 Ford Taurus needs heater core replaced. Does $1086.00 for parts and labor sound reasonable?


This is something you can call around to local Repair places to price. I imagine the best places would at least mention cleaning the ducts and the carpet if wet.

This kind of repair is also done by some Radiator repair shops too. The heater core is like a small Radiator and can be fixed the same way.

The big "if" is how the core is accessed. Some are accessible under the hood and others are under the dash. For the dash type, how badly buried into the dash they are can cost more money to fix.

In either case you have a car with a known repair record so getting an accurate estimate in YOUR area, should be practical by telephone. Remember that several controls make the heater work. You are saying the problem is the heater core. Most shops will want to see it first.

Heater core leaking


Must replace the heater core. Its usually a very hard job that requires disassembly of the dash. If you insist on doing the job yourself, I suggest getting a repair manual from your local auto parts store so you can use it as a reference as you work. Here is a link to a video on a 98, yours will be very similar: http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=1991+Pontiac+Bonneville+heater+core+replacement&sm=12

Replace heater core


This is a pretty complicated job, Its doable but time consuming. I recomend you go to your local auto parts store and buy a Haynes or Chilton Manual for 20+ bucks. The job entails removing the lower ducting and blower from the under dash area. There are many screws and bolts. The manual would show you the location of these screws/bolts.

1995 corvette heater core replacement cost estimate


225.00 bucks including parts labor, you might find a local mechanic will do it for 100.00 buck for labor and you buy the part 49.00 buck. lots of GM mechanic are laid off and economy is slow and you might want to advertise on craig list needing GM mechanic. my best secrets is drive back to the GM garage and ask any mechanic who does the side work and you will be surprise. keep in mind dont ask the shop manager, believed me every dealership has one or more does a side job and good price, no shop rate. hope that help some good luck.
