SOURCE: replacing heater core
Posted on Jan 21, 2009
oh, sucks for you!! i just replaced mine. it was a total pain in the ***. make sure you run the car up on some car ramps. this will help you quite a bit. because there will be times you'll be standing on your head, and in some horrible positions. it takes time and it takes patience. also make sure you have the correct heater core before you start. thanks to autozone, i drove around for about 3 days with the dash tore apart and the heating system bypassed because they gave me the wrong one. my recomendation is take your time. taking apart and putting together. 1/4 in drive metric set is handy to have. im no mechanic, however im also pretty handy and very mechanically inclined. i'd say with taking apart and putting together it probably took around 9 hours. but i was also by myself. lots of dash taking apart. and my car also has the center console, which didnt help my case. good luck!!!!!

Your heater core is clogged. You can fix it. Disconnect the two heater hoses and put one into a bucket. Use an air compressor to blow into the other - it'll flush the contents into the bucket. Then reverse it - put the hose you blew into, in the bucket, and blow into the one that was in the bucket. This way, whichever side of the core had the clog, you can blow it out. Reconnect the heater hoses, and then burp the system or you can end up with air bubbles in the cooling system that can cause you to overheat. Click my screenname, go to Tips and Tricks, and follow the procedure there - it'll walk you through the whole procedure step by step.
