How to replace a heater core in a 2009 dodge journey


It will require several hours of labor just to get into the heater core. Its not so much the heater core replacement, its taking most if not all of the panels underneath the passenger side underneath the dashboard. Dpending on your car model, it may also require you to remove the glove box just to have access to the heater core.

In rare cases you have to remove the whole top dash board but most cars in general only require to remove panels underneath the dashboard on the passenger side. It's tricky to remove the heater core because it is well hidden behind many panels, a whole lot of screws to remove. Then you have to remove or cut the heater hoses in front of the engine compartment as those hoses are attached to the heater core.

I just replace the heater core in my old buick and it took some effort to undo all those panels and hoses and screws but i finally got it all done and heater works perfect. That repair at a automovtive repair shop would of cost me 350 to 400 dollars. I just spent 35.00 bucks for the heater core and another 12.00 bucks for new heater hoses and that was it, that and the intense labor involved to remove the old heater core. But i saved a huge bundle by doing it by my self, good luck.

Average price to replace heater core


This is a major job. Accessing the HVAC module where the heater core resides requires discharging the A/C system, removing the dashboard, steering column, and heater box. The labor is just over 6 hours. Add in the cost of coolant and refrigerant and you've got a big bill coming....and unfortunately, one that most DIYers can't take on by themselves. Labor rates run $80.00 - $100.00 hour depending on shop. Some services can be packaged to save money, such as the recover-recharge A/C system, drain/refill cooling system. Be careful, however, because shops use a industy-standard book rate for these jobs to determine hours to charge. The hours listed for this job should include the coolant drain/refill and A/C discharge/recharge labor if they are required. If the shop offers you package prices, ensure that they are adjusting labor time for the core R/R and not double-billing you on the labor for those package items.

2002 ford taurus - need to replace heater core. do you have to remove the entire dash or is there a short cut? also is $600 including labor at a shop a typical price for this job?


The labor time to replace the heater core is 5.5 hours if equipped with a center console, and 5.0 hours without. Multiply this by the shops hourly rate and you have the labor time. Ex: 5.0 x $100.00 per hr. = $500 labor plus parts. The heater core will be approx. $100.00 (Ford # F80Z-18476-AA) and coolant will be approx. $25.00. Labor times will vary depending on the labor book but should not vary by more than 1/2 hour. Sometimes a coolant flush and thermostat replacement may be recommended. Flushing can run $100 and a thermostat should cost no more than $25.00 plus .8 hours.

As far as shortcuts, the dash does have to be removed but could be partially pulled back. This should be done by an experienced person since costly damage could occur. Good luck.

No heat coming from heater. Mechanic said he will bypass the heater core but then I will never have any heat? Any suggestions


If the problem is infact the heater core, it could be very costly to put a new one in, I suggest looking at junk/scrap yards for a used one for your car.

What is the cost to put a new heater core in?


It should cost somewhere around $600.00 for parts and labor. Obviously, this depends greatly for the labor rate your shop charges. The price for the heater core is about $88.00, and about 5 hours to install at about $100.00 per hour.

I do not have heat in the van. how can I fix it


See if there is any leakage around your engine, especially where your coolant pipe goes into contact. After that check if there is any leackage coming from your passenger compartment. If not, the main reason for not getting heat is that there is something wrong with the heater core. Either it is leaking, or not getting contact with your coolant hose. You might need to replace the heater core which could range in hundreds to the thousand depending on how complicated it is... normally the heater core cost under 75.00 but labor charges, we all know about labor charges. Their hefty.

Sometimes the air conditioner just cuts off.and then i notice that the passenger seat floor in the front and back seat are wet. the car has not or is not running hot so what could the problem be.i was told...


The heater core will leak regardless the temperature This is most likely your problem. The heater core isn't costly it's the labor. The dash has to be removed to access the heater core. Usually a shop will charge a flat rate and some will do 2-4 hour labor. It really depends on the shop and how bad they are trying to rip you off.

I have a 1990 Camaro, I had the heater disconnected - cost was $150, they said to replace it with a new heater would be over $800 - is this a fair price ?- The car is not worth more than $1,000


if you mean to replace a heater core,
the heater core is about $40.00 from Autozone,So the $150.00 is labor,this job can be done in one hour and at shop rates today that would be $50.00,
you need to buy the heater core yourself and find another shop.
