SOURCE: how to replace a heater core out of 97 buick skylark

There is a free way to find out where it is which is what you'll have to do first, go to any parts place which should have a diagram or they can just tell you over the phone. i will tell you this, hope that it's on the passenger side because if it's on the driver side you will need to pull the dash to get to it. If it's on the passenger side like the blower motor you can just drop the glove box door down to get to it. It looks like a little box woth two or three small hoses or pipes going to it which are failrly easy to disconnect. Hope this helped, good luck!

SOURCE: How to replace heater core on 1997 Buick Skylark

You will need a piece of pipe about 2" to 3"long that will fit inside the diameter of the two heater hoses at the firewall and two hose clamps. (1)disconnect the two hoses at the firewall; (2)slip a clamp on each hose; (3)slip the piece of pipe into both hose ends to connect the two hoses together; (4)install and tighten clamps on each end of hoses over pipe. (You might want to put a little grease on the pipe for easier removal when you are ready to install new core.) Start engine and check for leaks at the connections.

Buick 1997 Skylark


I had this problem twice and it probably is the heater core. There is a temporary fix if you can't get it changed out right away. You can get it tied off but you won't have any heat, it will stop leaking though. Does your heater work? If your heater blows cold and only blows warm when your car warms up then starts blowing cool air again that's a surefire sign.
