SOURCE: the nipple on the heater core that connact the

Unfortunately the heater core must be replaced because the nipple is soldered to the heater core and access to the core for resoldering is not possible unless the heater core is remove and so if you go to that kind of trouble you should just replace the core with a new one rather than doing the repair and risking a future leak after reinstalling.

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.

This is an easy $7.00 fix. Go to your local auto parts store and get a GM Heater Hose Fitting. I went to NAPA, part #730-5631. Cut of the old fiting with a hack saw blade, being careful not to damage the pipe from the heater core, put the new one on. Total time takes less than 10 minutes, make sure you fill your coolant resevoir.

Heater hose connector at firewall is broken


Hi. I just had the same issue on my '99 Silverado last week. There are two connections for the heater hoses to the Heater core. One is white and the other is black. The Black one is available at any autoparts store for about 5 bucks but the white one is a dealer only part that the autoparts store guys will say does not exist. That is the bad news. The good news is that you do not need to use the dealer only part. The black fittings worked just fine for me. You will need to use a fuel line disconnect tool to remove the existing fittings from the heater core. These should run between 10 and 20 bucks for a set. Good luck. Joe

if the heater core inlet pipe broke you may need to replace the unit depending on how far it broke ...to help get the hose off a bent awl or sometimes a small screwdriver and run it around the inside of the hose to help loosen it it otherwise if your replacing the hose as well a razor knife you can cut a **** in it to open it up as well

I'AM LOOKING FOR A DIAGRAM OF THE COOLING SYSTEM; SO I CAN DISCONNECT THE HEATER HOSE AND USE A WATER HOSE TO RUN THROUGH IT TO SEE IF ANY DEBRIS ARE TRAPPED BLOCKING WATER FLOW


This is how I flush the heater core...go to the garden department at Wal-Mart and get a 5/8 - 3/4" female garden hose connector similar to my picture...remove the upper heater core hose and connect your garden hose to the connector then to the heater hose and secure with a hose clamp. Remove the lower heaer core hose and point it to the gound, then turn on your faucet and run clean water thru it... b67bfc8.jpg

Heater Core Leaking 2001 GMC Sierra 5.3. I have a strong antifreeze smell in the cab and this morning the heater fogged up the windows. I have read that replacing the heater core also involves evacuating...


you could quick fix! but you will have no heat, 1st under the hood, look at the back of motor, follow all you're radiator hoses, take two hoses off the heater core stick a pipe that is big enough then clamp the pipe down. to both sides of hoses to the pipe you will eventually have to replace heater core!!
