My '97 saturn is leaking coolant on the passanger carpet. I think it is the heater core what is the best solution and cheapest. thanks sarah


I would have the heater core changed on this car. Getting an aftermarket part can be a good choice since the aftermarket ones don't leak as often as the OEM part.

Hi there my heater only puts out very low heat if warm at all and i was wandering where the best place to start to find out what the problem is


You can change the thermostat. Check the valve in the heater line to see if it is opening and allowing the water to enter the heater core, and check the heater core itself for leaks or clogs.

Heater core apears to be leaking and i would like to try rad stop leak , the leak appears to be very slight


give the stop leak ago. If it DOES work consider it a cheap quick fix. i wouldn't expect it to be a permanent fix though.. it may stop the leak in one spot but shortly after another one could develop at another part of the heater core. Or you could check the hoses and make sure its not them itself around where the hose clamps are. but if your 100% sure it is the heater core itself the best way to go would be replacement.

How do i change the heater core in a 04 landrover freelander


the heater core is a very troublesome job. You need to remove the shifter cover, center console, radio, a/c assembly and remove the entire dash. The heater core is located under the dash in the center of the cab. This is a pretty big job. My dealership charges 9.0hrs for this job. If you are planning on doing it the very best thing you can do is first to get a manual for the vehicle.

Heater core


The automotive repair manuels that you can buy at the major part stores such as Autozone, Advance or ORiley's do a good job of describing how the heater core is removed. Most heater cores come out from under the dash, while a rare few are removed from the firewall.

One wonders why you are changing the heater core. Are you getting steam on the inside of your windshield? Usually the best indication your heater core is leaking, or are you getting no heat? In which case it make be duct doors.

Heater core


sorry to say, but the car at best is only worth about $1100. Most likely more like $800. A professional heater core will cost $600 to install. This is a very-very-VERY big job to do yourself...if you never done one. I say, take the $600 you would have to spend, sell the car for $300-$400 needing a core, and buy something else with that money. No offense, just the reality of the situation. Sometimes you need someone to just say it.
