The heater core is located behind the dashboard. The entire dashboard has to be completely removed in order to replace the heater core. The time it takes to remove and replace this dash is usually about a few hours, thus the high $500-$600 pricetag, which I believe is decent.

    Yes, mine was quoted at $900 dollars to replace the heater core. Between my brakes (and calipers) needing replaced and the heater core, it was more cost effective to have my son do it. He's mechanically inclined and he's willing.. The heater core only costs about 78 dollars, so he's saving me hundreds by doing it himeself.

Is it expensive to over to get a heater core changed in a 1999 Buick Century

From what I have researched the core runs 50 - 60 USD. It appears that accessing the core is not as difficult on this model as some others, and I would estimate that a shop would charge about 2-3 hours labor to do it. You would also have the cost of replacement coolant as well and possibly new hose clamps depending on the condition of the existing ones. If you are moderately capable, it is a job that can be done DIY and there are a few Google links explaining step-by-step how to do it. A shop (US) current charges 70-100 USD per hour for labor, so you can do the math.

Have a 2001 montana, ENGINE does not overheat, but has no heat out of heater core, replaced the thermostat.

Could be a blend door problem under the dash.
If one heater hose is hot and the other is not, could also be a blockage in the heater core.

No heat coming from heater. Mechanic said he will bypass the heater core but then I will never have any heat? Any suggestions

If the problem is infact the heater core, it could be very costly to put a new one in, I suggest looking at junk/scrap yards for a used one for your car.

How to change leaking heater core in a 2005 dodge caravan, 4 cyl

If you are certain the heater core is leaking, I would shop around for estimates. This repair requires complete removal of the dashboard, and is not a repair for the faint of heart.

Parts are a minor portion, and labor is the lions share. If you are inclined and have the tools/patience, you can save quite a chunk of money.

You want to only do it once though, and do it right. Might also consider replacing the A/C evap while your in there.

Expect the quotes to run in the $800-1200 dollar range.

I have a 1990 Camaro, I had the heater disconnected - cost was $150, they said to replace it with a new heater would be over $800 - is this a fair price ?- The car is not worth more than $1,000

if you mean to replace a heater core,
the heater core is about $40.00 from Autozone,So the $150.00 is labor,this job can be done in one hour and at shop rates today that would be $50.00,
you need to buy the heater core yourself and find another shop.

I believe the rear heater cord has a leak. no visible leak, just the antifreeze smell when the rear heat is on. where is this heater cord located and estimated cost to replace also , any recall?

You only have one heater core and its located up front. If you smell it in the back its all the same vent system.

Heater cores are usually less than 50 bucks but the cost to install varies depending on who does it. Best bet is it call for an estimate,
No recall on this issue
