Heater cores aren't cheap but the installation fee is upwards of $500. It may not be something the layman can safely do.-------------------------------------------------------------------

if you have air conditioning you will need to take it to a garage and recover the r134, you will need to remove the dash to allow you to remove the heater box, it's an ugly job, I've done a dozen or so and can do it in about 6 hours now, the first time it was closer to 11 hrs, good luck

SOURCE: heater core

You have to pull the dash and all the lower fascia, then remove the box that houses the Heater Core Take the clamps off the heater hoses from the engine compartment side of the firewall and disconnect the heater hoses. Disconnect the bracket that holds the heater core in place from the inside of the passenger compartment (if present.) Carefully remove the heater core and discard it. Install a new heater core reversing the above steps.

SOURCE: bad heater core

look undre the passenger side dash and you will see a black box. Look closely and you will see screws in it around the edges. remove all the screws then remove the cover,there is the heater core, held in by 1 screw that is kinda hard to see. next look under the hood on the passenger side firewall right in front of the dash, you will see 2 hoses with clamps on them. loosen the clamps and remove the hoses. you may want to drain the radiator first but I never do

SOURCE: Male fitting on heater core inlet broke off in hose

RKmastertech is incorrect. That plastic fitting is seperate from the aluminum heater core and can be removed by means of a special quick disconnect tool, like OTC 6046. Rock auto has the fitting for $5 plus shipping, just for a reference.

Rear heater core line leaking, can I fix w/ rubber hose and clamps? The leak is right below drivers side door. There are four lines that run to rear heater core but only one is leaking.


yeah hose and clamps are the cheap easy way to go there, or if your lucky, the leak is right at the spot where the hose meets the metal and you can just cut the end off and put it back with the old clamp

To install:

  2. Install the cover and tighten the retainers.
  3. Install lower trim panel.
  4. Connect the hoses and fill the cooling system.
  5. Fill the cooling system. Disconnect the heater outlet hose at the water pump until coolant begins to escape and this will bleed the system.

96 s 10 no heat blower is good switch is good gust cant get hot water to go threw it one hose is hot but not the uther one got 1/2 the dash out but still cant fimd the problem


sounds like a pluged heater core or a valve is closed
ask dealer if there is a shut off valve in heater lines between heater core and motor
if not then you need to flush that bad boy

Heater core is clogged, not hot heat coming out.


you can try to flush it out by removing both heater hose going into the core and coming from the core. Hook a garden hose to the hose going in and then try flushing the hose going out. Normally once a heater core is clogged there is only the option of replacing it.

Bad leak from little 2 inch L shaped hose next to lower firewall


its either the hose,or the heater core.
the core can crack where the pipes meet the core and
if you can smell antifreeze in the car and the windshield fogs,it is the core....the hose can also crack on the inside of the firewall and get misdiagnosed as a heater core.
big job,the dash has to come out
