Heater core inlet pipe plastic broke

I have a 2000 Silverado and wanted to flush the heater core. One hose came off nicely and the other the plastic broke. I need to get the rest of the plastic off but I'm not sure what tool to ask for. I hate Dex-cool.

    It took awhile but I found the tool at O'Reily's auto parts. Any auto parts store should have it. Mine cost $10 for six different pipe sizes. The tool splits apart to go around the heater pipe and then inserts into the plastic piece. That spreads the tangs and it comes right off. Chevy doesn't sell the tool. Thanks for the help. I have heat again.

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

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.

Low heat from heater


Had same problem. Take off both hoses to the heater core at the fire wall. Using a garden hose with nozel flush with water on the "inlet hose" first(the one hot to touch) then flush the other side. A nasty blackish slim will come out. Oh, cover your distributor with a plastic bag first so it won't get wet. Put the hoses back on, set heat for full high and enjoy your nice warm bravada again!
