Hi

For access you have to remove the instrument(dash) panel and then the heater plenum. I would disconect heater core hoses at fire wall and put in a piece of metal pipe of the same diameter clamp it well and it should get you where you want to go for now.
Its under your dashboard, behind the radio. Cost for this job should be no more then about 350.00 . Why ? Dis-assembly. The heater core for your car is only about 40.00 for a GDI brand core, more from the dealer and you do not have to buy it from the dealer. Even if the dealer were out of stock, they'd buy one from another auto parts dealer then install it. So dont be fooled by some mechanic who wants to take more money home for the holidays.

Please do accept the solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

1998 Chrysler voyager van water leaking form heater core. once water is added in to radiator makes no difference using antifreeze


As long as the coolant is full, You won't have problems with heat. Check the rest of the system for leaks. Can't find a leak and still gets low. 2 possibilities. Heater core is leaking or head gasket is leaking. I would lean towards the heater core because of the water inside.

Water leaking onto passenger side floorboard,soaking the carpet


Your heater core has developed a leak - the wetness on the passenger side carpet is engine coolant
from a heater core leak, or a leak in one of the two hoses connected to the back of the heater core.
Your strategy: disassemble dash down to heater core, determine whether you'll need a new heater
core or new hose (or new hose clamp), then replace the offending part.

Get the radiator and heater core, hoses and thermostat replaced. Also replace the mixing valve if needed. A radiator shop could give you an estimate and diagnose the problem better than I can online. I hope sincerly that this helps.

No water flowing thru heater core


your can try flushing the system but it would be better just to change the heater core out! Instructions below
Inspect/Replace If it is necessary to remove the heater assembly, the cooling system must be drained before removing the heater core.
When a heater core leaks, a new heater core is installed or the old one repaired.
Heater Housing
  • The heater housing is usually under the dash and must be removed to gain access to the heater core.
  • Procedures for replacing the heater core vary with the year, make, and model of car. It threfore necessary to consult the manufacturer's repair manuals for the proper procedure for replacement.
f74-01.gif The heater housing is disassembled to get to the heater core.
Heater Core
  • Remove the access panels(s) or the split heater/air conditioning case to gain acess to the heater core.
  • Remove the heater coolant hoses.
  • Remove the cable and/or vacuum control lines (if equipped).
  • Remove the heater core securing brackets and/or clamps.
  • Lift the core from the case. Do not use force. Take care not to damage the fins of the heater core when removing.
  • To reinstall the heater core, reverse the removal steps.
When the heater core leaks and must be repaired or replaced, it is a very difficult and time-consuming job primarily because of the core's location deep within the firewall of the car. For this reason always leak test a replacement heater core before installation.!
