Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
Is there anyway to fix the plastic male fitting on the heater core inlet. It broke off in the hose. Will I have to replace the entire heater core?
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.
