How difficult is it to change a heater core?

How difficult is it to change a heater core in a 95 jeep grand cherokee 4x4? Would it be just as efficient to by-pass the leaking core for a quick fix?

    We were thinking about bypassing and purchasing a 12 volt heater or portable heater. I'm hoping that would also help with any fogging up as well.

    For a quick fix, without a professional, you'd suggest the bypass then?

    Could you tell me how difficult it would be to actually change the heater core in my vehicle?

  • durdenslabs Oct 07, 2009

    My dad and I are going to bypass it tomorrow. It doesn't get to awfully cold in Louisiana (usually) so a portable/plug in heater should be ok until we can fix it.

    I just wish someone knew where I could find a manual on replacing the heater core in our jeep.

    I can't answer how hard it is to replace the heater core on this vehicle, on some vehicles it is a royal pain, in old days, not so bad. As I knock on wood, I can say I have never had to replace one, but do remember dear old Dad and that Rambler station wagon we had...your bypass is easy, have done that before when one heater hose sprung a leak, until we could replace.

    It would be very efficient, and probably cheap to bypass the heater core. However, winter is approaching, I might think you would desire a heater, and to have the ability to keep windows from fogging up.

When I give my car the gas or stop I hear a swooshing of water coming from under the dashboard

Uh oh, sounds to me like your heater core is leaking, and I also am willing to bet that if you feel your floor boards, they will be soaked with water. Most are difficult to change, but you need a new heater core installed. Keep an eye on your coolent lvl, you car might start overheating. heare is what one looks like:8007f164-d248-480b-9fe7-6465ba789138.gifand it is located under, behind your dash on passenger side. You may have to revove most of the dash to get to it. If you want to try this job yourself, google : 2001 jeep grand cherokee heater core replacement.

The fan comes on in my 95 Jeep Cherokee at all speeds but there is no heat. The carpet is dry beneath the heater core, no fogging of windows when started and no smell of mildew. What could be the problem?

Your heater core mite be plugged. you can buy flushing kits and hook too a hose and back flush system. Also the electrical valve could be in closed posistion.

95 Jeep Grand Cherokee....I have no hot air. of course I assumed heater core at first but there is no puddle on the floor board and both hoses going to and from the heater core are hot at normal running...

Your heater core could be plugged with dust if this problem came up slowly I would suspect that. Another thing that cold be wrong is a trap door is not opening these are operated by cables vacuum or stepper motors. Confirm that something happens when you move from cold to hot on the control.

How to change a heater core in a 93 jeep grand cherokee

When I turn my heater on, after my 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee has warmed up, there is a dusty, watery smell for a few minutes, then it goes away. Also, it doesn't put out as much heat as I think it should. I don't think the heater core has a leak, because I always seem to have the same amount of coolant in the radiator and the heater core is not leaking on the inside of the truck.

Front wheel bearings can be done at home rear wheel bearings will require a hydraulic press and an axle puller. Either job can be difficult depending on amount of rust and availability of tools. The front wheel bearings are an assembly and once the jeep is up on jack stands, with the tires, brake calipers, and rotors removed, it is only a matter of removing the axle nut and 3 bolts (which can be difficult depending on rust) holding in the old bearing assembly
