That is where your Heater core is located. Its like a little radiater that your vents blow thru to get hot air for heating your interior. If thats leaking, its not gunna stop. Take this car in right away before you run your coolent dry and trash your car.

Hi, this symptom indicates restricted flow through the heater core. Recommend you try back flushing the core by removing the heater hoses from the heater core (in the engine compartment) and hooking a garden hose to the lower port using a splice. If the core will not back-flush, replace the core. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Where is the heater core on a 1995 Buick Century?

If it is necessary to remove the heater assembly, the cooling system must be drained before removing the heater core.
When a heater core leaks, a new heater core is installed or the old one repaired.
Heater Housing
  • The heater housing is usually under the dash and must be removed to gain access to the heater core.
  • Procedures for replacing the heater core vary with the year, make, and model of car. It threfore necessary to consult the manufacturer's repair manuals for the proper procedure for replacement.
f74-01.gif The heater housing is disassembled to get to the heater core. Heater Core
  • Remove the access panels(s) or the split heater/air conditioning case to gain acess to the heater core.
  • Remove the heater coolant hoses.
  • Remove the cable and/or vacuum control lines (if equipped).
  • Remove the heater core securing brackets and/or clamps.
  • Lift the core from the case. Do not use force. Take care not to damage the fins of the heater core when removing.
  • To reinstall the heater core, reverse the removal steps.
When the heater core leaks and must be repaired or replaced, it is a very difficult and time-consuming job primarily because of the core's location deep within the firewall of the car. For this reason always leak test a replacement heater core before installation.
