Question about 1992 Ford Taurus
My mechanic of 11 years told me I need to have the Heater Core replaced as the smell of antifreeze is prominent inside my car. He said the job is ENORMOUS (it envolves disengaging the air bags) and told me I could go blind from the antifreeze fumes if I don't do it....Mechanic would only replace the heater core itself and not the rubber hoses attached (I looked at my shop manual and can't understand why replacing the rubber hoses is a big deal???) ***What is the proper method for replacing a heater core and what other parts should be replaced nearby so I don't have to go through this expense again. Also, do you recommend going to a specialty shop? The car has low mileage so getting rid of it is not an option.
I would find another shop that will do the job The way you want it done. If the shop you are looking to go too don't want to change the hoses go to one that does what you want. Hoses will last twenty years in the right conditions and should last but if you want them changed your paying for it . Yes there is allot of extra work because they have to routed thru around and are a real bugger. So If they say there in good shape and shouldn't be a problem take there word. Some mechanics won't go the Extra Mile for the customer. Hope you get what you want done.
