Sorry but its very likely those threads are still stuck in your engine. GM used Plastic, Steel and Cast parts, the most common being a steel that rusts away and gives you the result you now have. You might get lucky removing the broken remains yourself. If you can reach it, you may try an extractor or "easy-out" which is a reverse threaded tool to try and back out the part. however, these are never in an easy to reach location, and more careful extraction may be needed. In that case do not attempt it yourself unless you are very mechanically oriented. you can easily damage your engine block or intake (depending upon where its located). Also note: if the fitting is corroded, so will many other parts in your engine such as the freeze plugs and other fittings. Consider checking these items out as well before big problems arise.

-Good luck

Fitting for hose that goes from engine to heater core broke off. How can I repair it?


If it's the plastic fitting it scares into the engine you can break the piece in the engine apart apart. Be careful as it is threaded in and you do not want to damage the threads. Auto stores sell a metal replacement.

Antifreeze leaking on inside passenger side of 1994 GMC suburban


It sounds like you probably have a leak in your heater core. Replacing a heater core can be a difficult job. If you decide want to try it I suggest you get a shop manual to help you out. I can give you a relatively easy temporary fix that will stop the leak until you have more time to fix it or you can take it into a shop to have it done. The down side is this fix will temporally disable your heater. Wait for the engine to cool. Open the engine compartment and look all the way in the back between the engine and the firewall. Find the 2 heater hoses that pass through the firewall. They should be about 1 inch in diameter. Undo the hose clamps and disconnect them from the firewall. Get a short piece of metal tubing about the thickness of the inner diameter of the hoses. Use this metal tubing to connect the heater hoses together and clamp them using the two hose clamps. Now the antifreeze that would normally circulate through your heater core will instead circulate through this loop and not enter the passenger compartment. If you can't find a short piece of metal tubing to do this fix you can completely remove one of the heater hoses. Then take the other heater hose and connect it to location near the engine where you disconnected the first hose. Save the first hose so you can hook it up later when you do the more permanent fix. Make sure to position all hoses such that they aren't resting on any hot surfaces. I hope this advice helps you out.

The heater only blows cold air,the radiator is full,thermastat is working and the engine temp is within normal ranges.


I've had this problem. 2000 GMC uses a closed coolant system. Meaning takes and returns coolant from and to the Reserve Bottle and has little air in the engine and heater systems.
If everything appears ok but no heat. "Air Lock" is the most likely cause. (With interior heater set to full heat) Solution; 1. Make sure water pump works. 2. Drain about 1/2 engine coolant into container. 3 Remove both heater hoses from engine side and flush heater core in both directs through heater hoses with garden hose. 4. Reattach heater hoses in correct locations. 4. Refill engine with coolant. 5 Start engine and run for 2 min., use caution when topping up coolant.
6. Most 2000 GMC have twist off caps with plugs located mid way on heater hoses. with engine cold, start engine these caps may be loosened to allow trapped air to escape. Do not attempt with engine hot due to hot coolant injuries. This may take more than one attempt to remove all air from heat system. 7. Lastly most 2000 GMC water pumps have a bleeder plug,( 3/8" square driver plug) located on the water pump. With egine cold this plug should be removed to remove any air. Reinstall plug with thread sealant.
Hope this helps cheers

How to get access to a heater core for a 1985 GMC suburban K2500 350CID


This was the procces on an 86 chev 1/2 ton. Should be the same. Remove glove box. Undo manual controls for duct work. you'll see them there behind where the glove box was on top of the heater core housing. Bemove screws/bolts. Don't remember how many there are. Undo hose clamps in the engine compartment. Remove heater core.
