Hi, no im afraid not it sounds like the heater matrix rad has got a leak and to get this out you are going to need to remove most of the dash, it will be a good idea to get a workshop manual a haynes one if you can get one as this will give you step by step instructions and pictures because their are loads of hidden clips and screws that you need to get to to be able to remove the dash.

sorry i couldnt give you good news and it only gets worse as its a nightmare of a job to do and if you pay a garage to do it then the charges for hourly rate will be high as its such a big job and considering the rad itself wont cost much its the labour that kicks the price up. but if you are doing it yourself then please get a workshop manual as its a right nightmare of a job to do

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

How to fix my heater?


First check the heater hoses coming through the firewall from the engine are not leaking, damaged or blocked. make sure that the water is passing through these when you turn on the heater. My guess is that is that the hot water from the engine is not circulating through these pipes to the heater radiator inside the vehicle at the bottom center of the dash board console. Check to see if the cable connecting the heater control knob has not come loose and the check that there is no leak in that heater radiator by inspecting that the surrounding areas are not damp by the foot-wells. If so remove that radiator and send in to a radiator repair center to be repaired. if they cannot repair it then te heater radiator will have to be replaced.

Where is the heater core located in a t660 ke


A QUICK FIX FOR A DAMAGE HEATER CORE?
TO REPLACE A HEATER CORE IT COST ABOUT $700..
THE COMPLETE DASHBOARD HAVE TO BE REMOVE...

BUT IM HERE TO SPARE YOU OF $700 FOR NOW.

I WILL GIVE YOU THE BEST AND QUICK AND CHEAPEST SOLUTION TO GET YOUR CAR ON THE ROAD... ASAP, A $20 FIX..

DO IT YOURSELF AND SAVE THE TOWING TO MECHANIC.

THE BAD (YOUR HEATER WILL NOT WORK).. YOUR FAN AND AC WILL WORK FINE, JUST NO HEAT. (SOLUTION>)GET A PORTABLE HEATER THAT CONNECT TO YOUR LIGHTER UNTIL YOU GET THE CASH TO PAY $700+

A HEATER CORE IS THE LITTLE RADIATOR UNDER YOUR DASH, THAT RECEIVE ANTIFREEZE FROM THE BIG RADIATOR IN FRONT OF THE ENGINE, THAT GIVES YOU HEAT DURING COLD WEATHER.

FROM THE BIG RADIATOR THERE IS 2 LITTLE HOSES THAT ATTACHES TO THE HEATER CORE, LOOK FOR IT NEAR THE BRAKE SYSTEM IN BACK OF THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT ON THE PANEL OF THE CAR. (2 RUBBER HOSES.. (SEE PIC BELOW FOR SAMPLE)

THEY WILL HAVE 2 CLAMPS, WITH REGULAR HAND TOOLS, YOU
WOULD BE ABLE TO REMOVE BOTH HOSES, ONCE YOU REMOVE THEM..
BUY A SMALL METAL TUBE IN THE SHAPE OF A (U)
AND CONNECT BOTH HOSES TO EACH OTHER, AND PLACE BOTH BRACKETS OR CLAMPS TIGHTLY FOR NO LEAKS.

ITS A 10 MIN JOB.

REMOVING BOTH HOSES FROM THE HEATER CORE AND RE-ATTACHING THEM TOGETHER, ALL YOU DOING ITS ELIMINATING THE HEATER CORE COMPLETELY, THAT'S LOCATED UNDER THE DASH FOR HEATING SUPPORT.

IF YOUR HEATER CORE WAS LEAKING ANTIFREEZE INSIDE YOUR CAR, IT WILL STOP LEAKING ONCE YOU DISCONECT THE 2 HOSES FROM OUTSIDE ENGINE COMPARTMENT, THERE WILL BE NO MORE ANTIFREEZE GOING INTO YOUR HEATER CORE SINCE YOU WILL BYPASS THE HEATER CORE.

ONCE YOU CONNECT BOTH HOSES TOGETHER, THE ANTIFREEZE WILL CIRCULATE BACK TO THE FRONT RADIATOR AND NO OVER HEATING AND NO LEAKING INSIDE YOUR CAR MO MORE. YOUR CAR WILL DRIVE FINE, YOUR AC AND FAN WILL WORK THE SAME...SO LONG THAT WAS THE ONLY PROBLEM.

THIS THE MOST AFFORDABLE AND QUICKEST SOLUTION TO GET BACK ON THE ROAD ASAP.

LEAVE ME YOUR FEEDBACK.

GOOD LUCK

THANKS

The heater was on and it made a pop and water start leaking on passager floor


Sounds like your heater core just ruptured. On most vehicles this requires the entire dash assembly be removed to access it. a few models have an access panel though. Your best bet is to get the repair manual for your vehicle to see which route you need to take to remove it.

Over heats, water on floor board


  • Hi, I can help.

  • Your heater core is leaking onto your floorboad. This lowers your antifreeze as well as looses pressure and your car overheats. Your in luck though, you don't have to remove the entire dash to replace the heater core. You get to this heater core by removing the glove box. Last one I did in the freezing cold took me about 1 1/2 hours. Not to bad of a job.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

I have antifreeze leaking into the cab through the floor heat vent


You need to replace your heater coil. That is the only place that Radiator fluid comes into the cabin area.

Hi I have a 96 eldorado and I have a leak problem. A few days ago when my girl friend was driving my car she called me up and said that the car was blowing smoke on the dash board. I took the car home and...


This sounds like the heater core radiator has a leak. After disconnnecting the negative battery terminal and draining the coolant, you will have to perform the following:
1) disconnect the heater core hoses.
2) remover right side sound insulator and glove box module.
3) Remove the programmer shield, if equipped and disconect the air mix valve link.
4) Detach the programmer vacuum and electrical connectors.
5) Remove the heater core cover, leaving the programmer attached.
6) Remove the heater core retaining screws and the heater core.
7) Take the heater core to a radiator shop for repair and re-install.
