The book time (mitchell) calls for 8.6 hrs, generally I charge 90.00 an hour. So 8.6*90.00= 774.00.

I am changing the heater core in a 97 cougar XR7 and need to know what the flat rate charge will be.

Hello heidicrebs: My name is Roger and I will answer for you. The time allowance for changing the heater core is 7.5 hrs. labor and 1.4 hrs. to evacuate and recharge the air conditioning. As for the dollar cost you will need to find out what the prevailing labor rate is at the shops in your area are. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer you received. This way I know if the answer was helpful. Thank you for using Fix Ya. Roger

The heater core in a 97 cougar i just bought has been bypassed. Could the problem have possibly (hopefully) been something else besides the heater core?

The answer is: Your first instinct is probably right. But, you're not going to know for sure until you hook it back up and check it out. Be careful, check for leaks inside and out of the car. You don't want to end up with more problems than you have now.
Hope this Helps,

How do i replace the heater core in a 1990 ford ranger

Hi! First remove the fiber cover under dash, take a flat blade screwdriver and pry out the center pin of the expansion clips that hold it in place. Then unhook heater hoses, pop the glove box out of the way,
put someting in floor to catch the antifrezze, take your time. Get the cover out of the way and it will slide right out more room then it looks.Replace any lost coolant and dont forget to test the new one for leaks before you put it in.
Please ask for further clarifications.

Please rate this solution as fixya if found useful.

Heater not working

try flushing out your heater core. sometimes it gets a scale build up and restrickes the flow thru it. what i do is remove both heater hoses to heater core and mix up some water and baking soda and pour it in the heater core and let it set for about a half hour then flush. you might also want to blow the antifreeze out of core be fore you do this as so you get enought of the solution in it. just make sure you flush it out both ways. use a garden hose for this. it makes a mess. but it could be a cheap fix. good luck.

Just got heater core replaced and now have no heat from heater or defrost. Fans work, just don't blow anything beyond "cool". The heat in my car is coming and going. I want to know how to fix...

It sounds like when they replaced your heater core, that they didn't properly hook up the blend door contros at the control panel. I would take it back to the repair shop that did the work and have them go back over things again just to make sure.

Heater core

Pull the panel under the glove box. You should be able to see the heater core. disconnect the two hoses under the hood on the firewall to the heater core. put a pan below to catch the antifreeze. Replace heater core. reconnect hoses.
