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.

How to flush heater core after stop leak was put into radiator


undo the both heater hoses at the engine fire wall
turn the heater control on
apply a garden hose at one of the hoses and flush through
do it both ways
Two things to consider
stop leak should only work at the area of the leak and circulate normally with the coolant so there should not be a blockage
second point is , if the heater core is blocked then flushing will hot clear it and it may need a new core
It is known that some stop leaks affect the coolant control tap of the heater so it may be that control unit that is the problem and not the core so keep that in mind before replacing the core

2000 envoy my heat was working but it made a loud whistling noise now it wont comeon at all hodo u tighten hose


Not an easy fix - sounds like either a heater/AC plenum control diaphragm started leaking, or a vacuum hose to one of them has popped off at the actuator or at the heater control, or the vacuum line developed a leak somewhere between an actuator and the heater control or the engine. You can try to pin down by checking airflow out of the defroster, ac and heater vents - if airflow is normal in each position, the problem is probably the heat/cool control actuator, the line from it to the heater control, or the heater control itself.

Where is the heater core on a 2005 grand caravan


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.

I have no heat! i have replaced the thermostat, hose to radiator and heater control valve the heater coil has leaked maybe 2 or 3 drops but nothing major (2001 530i)


If your heater core is leaking that it a good sign that it is your problem. When the heater core gets plugged up it has a tenancy to leak. The water can not flow through freely and causes it to leak.

1996 Bravada heater doesn't seem to throw hot


the temp control on your dash operates a hot water valve under hood, it's probably vacuum aparated, like the doors in the heater housing, the valve may be close to heater core,check for vacuum leaks around dash control, totally unrelated leaks can cause problems, and yes a blocked heater core can definitly cause the problem,but I would save that unless it's easy to get at, eliminate other stuff first, luck
