Thats a real job. The heater core is in the case that is behind the glove box. Pretty much the dash has to come out so you can separate that case to remove th heater core.

SOURCE: Where is the heater core located on 2000 Chevy Blazer?

Its located under the dash, just behind the glove compartment. From what I've read, you have to pretty much remove the entire dash to get to it.

SOURCE: Where is the heater core hose in my 2000 ford expedition?

check closer to just underneath the firewall--it could be a smaller problem than a heater core--Ford 4.6--5.4 engines have a tube just underneath the intake manifold that the rubber hose goes bad and it will leak towards the back of the engine.Lets hope so-what i hear its very expensive to change a heater core in an Expedition.

SOURCE: How to change heater core in a 2000 Chevrolet

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!

2000 Impala leaks coolant out hose in firewall


It sounds like you're looking at the heater core water lines. These connect to the heater core supply and return inlet and outlet pipes to bring hot coolant into the cabin for heat and windshield deicing.

The heater core is a mini radiator and operates on the exact same principles as the radiator does. The heater core is located behind the dash board on the passenger side. Look for a wet spot of antifreeze on the passenger side floor area - close to the firewall for an indication of a leaky heater core. If it is leaking, it will likely need to be replaced. This can be a pricey repair.

Good luck!

I have a 2000 chevy blazer 4.3 auto my windsheld builds up with steam i change the thermostat thinking it was that but still steaming up the windows


Hi, if it is steaming up the inside of your windows, you have a water leak in your heater core. It is located on the passenger side enclosed. Check you water level also. You can try adding some engine stop leak, a good brand is Bar's leak that will seal any small leak which is what you probably have. Make sure you are running a 50?50 mixture of antifreeze. Good Luck, and please let me know.

You have a leak in the heater core. It will have to be replaced. It's not all that rare these days, with the poor quality factory heater cores. The replacement cores are much better.

I have a heater core leak on my 2000 chevy silverado V6, is there an easy fix?


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.

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.

2000 chevy cavalier having coolant leak. Found a small rubber elbow hose about 2 and a half inches comming out of the firewall leaking coolant while engine is running and dripping while engine has stopped...


That hose is the drain hose for the air conditioner evaporator. If it is leaking coolant, there's a good chance that your heater core is leaking, as it is in the same 'box' that the air conditioner evaporator is in. You'll need to replace the heater core.
