You can bypass the heater core, you just wont have heat anymore. On the firewall of the truck, behind the engine, you will see 2 rubber heater hoses that go into the firewall. They attach to the heater core. Disconnect them and get a plastic connector, and connect the 2 hoses together with clamps to hold them down. This will stop coolant from going into the heater core, and no more leak.

Smelling antifreeze coming from a/c vents


this is a sign of a broken or punctured heater radiator which is located in the car cabinet that causes coolant to leak. you should also have noticed that the coolant level becomes low. you can either replace it or have it disconnected by removing the hoses that feed it with hot coolant, then you will have no heater inside the car cabinet.

2004 Chevy Silverado heater blows cold air. What would cause this problem?


the heat is independant from your ac. look for leaky radiator hoses or heater hoses,radiator cap,coolant

leaks inside your cab under the dashboard on your floor board. if you have non of these problems.

you may have a blocked or stopped up heater core and it will need to be replaced. depending on the

truck some replacements are easy and some hard , trucks and cars vary. good luck!

How to change heater core in a 2000 Chevrolet Silverado Heater core is leaking inside the truck


I believe on this model 1500/2500 gas w/ac that you have to first evacuate the a/c system and then remove the HVAC module [fancy wording for the entire heater box assembly] then remove the core from it once you have the assembly out of the cab. I also believe its about a 6 - 7 hour job and not one you'd want to try on your own unless you have quite a bit of mechanical experience behind you as it's not an easy one to do. It's also very easy to damage the new core when reinstalling the assembly back in the cab which will truly wreck your day if that happens!

Need to know where the heater core and heater control valve are for a 2000 chevy silverado 1500 v8. not sure if it has a heater control valve


The heater core is on the passenger side under the dash within the heater airflow contoller box. If you had Xray vision and could look straight through the glovebox, then you would see it. The heater control vale for the water flow is on the passenger side top of the engine near the firewall. It will have a domed top with a vacuum line to it and it is placed into the heater core supply hose.
