How do you chage heater core on 1998 buick park ave


  • Lift the hood and prop it open. Makes sure the engine is cold. Disconnect the negative battery cable with a socket wrench or box wrench. Avoid using open-end wrenches on the battery terminals, as they tend to strip the bolt heads.
  • 2Place a drain pan under the radiator. Open the radiator cap. Open the radiator drain on the bottom of the radiator and the two coolant drains near the oil pan. You can reuse the coolant unless it appears cloudy and contaminated. Close all three drain openings once all the coolant has drained from the system.
  • 3Disconnect the inlet and outlet hoses of the heater core inside the engine compartment using a socket wrench. Be prepared to catch or wipe up any coolant that drips from these hoses. Drain the coolant from inside the heater core.
  • 4Unscrew and remove the lower instrument panel sound insulator from below the dashboard on the passenger side. Use a socket or screwdriver to loosen and remove the screws on the heater floor outlet. Remove the clips and take out the duct.
  • 5Loosen and remove the screws holding the heater core cover in place. Remove the cover.
  • 6Remove the retaining bolts holding the heater core in place. Remove the heater core.

    Hi, this symptom indicates restricted flow through the heater core. Recommend you try back flushing the core by removing the heater hoses from the heater core (in the engine compartment) and hooking a garden hose to the lower port using a splice. If the core will not back-flush, replace the core. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

    Where is the heater core on a 1995 Buick Century?


    If it is necessary to remove the heater assembly, the cooling system must be drained before removing the heater core.
    When a heater core leaks, a new heater core is installed or the old one repaired.
    Heater Housing
    • The heater housing is usually under the dash and must be removed to gain access to the heater core.
    • Procedures for replacing the heater core vary with the year, make, and model of car. It threfore necessary to consult the manufacturer's repair manuals for the proper procedure for replacement.
    f74-01.gif The heater housing is disassembled to get to the heater core. Heater Core
    • Remove the access panels(s) or the split heater/air conditioning case to gain acess to the heater core.
    • Remove the heater coolant hoses.
    • Remove the cable and/or vacuum control lines (if equipped).
    • Remove the heater core securing brackets and/or clamps.
    • Lift the core from the case. Do not use force. Take care not to damage the fins of the heater core when removing.
    • To reinstall the heater core, reverse the removal steps.
    When the heater core leaks and must be repaired or replaced, it is a very difficult and time-consuming job primarily because of the core's location deep within the firewall of the car. For this reason always leak test a replacement heater core before installation.

    You have to remove the entire front of the heater case to change thecore. This usually looks a lot easier in print than it actually IS.Theinstructions say to remove the lower part of the dash for access; usually youdon't have to remove the entire dash for this type of service, althoughsometimes it makes things easier if you loosen and remove any components notmentioned in the procedure that are in your way.
    This kind of repair can be frustrating, as it involves working in tightplaces and with 1/4 drive extensions and universal sockets to get all thefasteners out, but it IS possible.Here is what I have for the factoryprocedure. I don't know of any shortcuts to make the process easier; if you can'tget it off, perhaps removing the dash completely for more room would be aviable option...
