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.

  • 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.

Passenger side floor board is wet.


Hi Big,

Heater core is on the passenger side under the dash.

Are your coolant levels low?

Start your engine and set the heater on high. This allows circulation through the core. Now check for leaks. Place a paper towel or two on the floor. This will allow you to see the color of whatever is leaking. (e.g. antifreeze)

Fogging will only occur when there is a temperature differential of more than one or two degrees between the inside and outside of the vehicle.

Best regards,
Mike
