How to take heater core out of 2000 Old's intrigue


You'll need a manual. You can get a ''Haynes'' repair manual at an auto parts store and/or on the internet for about $25 dollars. If not, you can get a factory manual, but it will cost you dearly. The job usually involves taking apart the dashboard. How far _into_ the dashboard you have to go will be explained by the manual. Sometimes, you get lucky and only the glove compartment has to be removed. Other times (especially with air conditioning in the way), you have to take the whole dashboard apart. // Yes, you'd think they would make it as easy as ''open the hood, remove the heater core'', but unfortunately, going all the way back to the 70's, they are behind the dashboard... unless it's an old truck. The heater core in my '65 Chevy Pickup is a half hour job.... Sorry :-(

The heater takes a long time to warm up


If you don't have a rear heater unit it will take a while to heat up the car. If not could be that the thermostat is getting weak and not allowing the engine to warm up as fast as it should.

Heater problems


Could be one of several things. Your car has automatic climate control that takes air temp and coolant temp into consideration in controlling the heater components.
The heater blower will not come on until the heater warms up. So the engine thermostat could be faulty and the engine is taking a longer time to warm up.
The electronic controller adjusts blower speed. And the blower motor could be going bad.
You may have to get a shop to take a look at it - someone with the books and tools to test the system.

2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited heater core replaced 3 times


if they have replaced it 3 times and still can't get the leak stopped
A. It not the heater core something else is leaking

B. there using a used heater core (which is my opinion is plain . . stupid)
C. the mechanic has no idea what he doing
First thing they should have done when car was brought in the 1st time was check for other leaks if it is the heater core still leaking the mechanic is installing it wrong or not geting hoses tight. the actual changing of the heater core takes only about 10 minutes and actually a easy process that anyone could do. What takes the most time is getting to the heater core because the majorly of the time the whole dash has to come out which takes hours

I would take your car somewhere else and have it fixed right and have them bill the dealership for the repairs

Engine heats up but takes a long time for warm air to blow. Once working, the thermostat works fine. Sometimes, warm air starts to blow and then goes cooler.


low fluid level or heater control valve may need replace..check hoses going to heater core...if cold...between heater control valve and heater core..replace control valve

Heater core replacement


You do not have to do anything with the air conditioning, its all inside car under right side of dash. 1. go under hood and unhook heater hoses and bracket( if equiped) from core tubes. 2. go under dash right side remove 13mm bolt far right under dash thats so you can pull dash out a little ways to get cover off heater where heater core is.3. 1/4 in. socket set and 1/4 in. socket take screws out holding cover on look close there is one hidden top far right can't remember how maney 5 or 6 i think, screws all out use a little finess and remove cover and there will be your heater core. Good luck.

Replace the engine thermostat, it is probably stuck open.

It is located where the top radiator hose enters the engine block and is supposed to close when the engine is cold, thus prevent coolant from going to the radiator while the engine is heating up.

At engine operating temperature, it opens up, sends the coolant to the rad, and keeps the engine coolant at that constant temperature.

99% of the time, this is the culprit.

The other 1% could be a clogged/partially clogged heater core, or a busted heater core (accompanied by a coolant leak/loss over time) which fogs up the windows even more when the heater is on defrost.

Thermostat replacement is an easy, quick job and cheap.

Heater core replacement is a little bit more time/money consuming
