How to replace heater core in a 1998 jeep grand cherokee

When a heater core leaks, a new heater core is installed or the old one repaired.

  • 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.

I have a 1998 Honda civic 1.4i.Turned car on this morning heater on full to defrost windscreen.After 10 minutes still blowing cold air!No noises etc and all settings work but still cold air.Help!


Are the radiator hoses from the engine to the firewall hot? If so, it's probably not the thermostat, it's probably either the heater core or the controls not allowing the heat to get in. Best advice I have (because I had to replace the heater core in my car last year) is to buy a Chilton repair manual for it. it walks you through everything. If it is a heater core, be prepared for a long job...

In my 1998 Honda Accord Lx the hot air does not come out of the heater vents in the floor, the same is true for cold air in the middle vents on the dash. The side vents on the dash work fine.

How do i remove the heater core for a 2006 honda element?


Hi:
Removing the heater core is quite a project, and I suggest you spend a little money and get step by step instructions at www.alldatadiy.com

I have a subscription for my Honda, and it helped alot.

When you are dissassembling your Element, have a sharpie and some sandwitch bags handy, and as you remove hardware for a certain part, bag it and label it, for installation ease.

1994 Honda Civic LX\overheating within 2 mile drive


Remove and raise upper hose at thermostat end and remove lower rad hose.
Fill rad with a hose and watch for flow from bottom rad hose and/ or bottom rad hose connecton.......water should fall though rad easily.
Honda rads are cheap.....any restriction....replace rad.

Remove thermostat....fill thermostat housing with hose and watch for water flow at bottom rad hose.
Flush good.

Remove heater hoses.......flush back and forth until a good flow is present "With heater control set to hot" if no or poor flow....replace heater core.

Stop leak can plug everything.

Also.......not likely causing over heating....but ....at your mileage,if you do not know if the timing belt has been changed.....CHANGE IT NOW!
Water pump is optional at this mileage.
