Hearing water noises behind dash in 2009 Chevy cobalt


your heater core is behind the dash on the passenger side. The antifreeze travels through it as its cycle through the engine. Thats what gives you hot air when you turn your heater on. If you find that there is water dripping or pooling in the floor board of the passenger side then your heater core needs to be replaced and its not an easy task.

I have an 1999 chrysler 300m an it has an overheating problem. There is also water all over the driver side floor (front n back) it is soaked. It takes about 25mins b4 it starts smoking. Can som1 plz help...


Typically if your leaking coolant inside the car, it indicates your heater core is split and leaking. Replacing the heater core is quite the job. It requires removal of the dash board and heater box. i replaced one in a 97 Cirrus at work last week and it was a 6 hour job. If your not mechanically inclined i would definitley recomend phoneing around for quotes to local auto repair shops and getting it done profesionally.

Sounds like a blown heater core. It's an involved job that requires the dash board to be removed. Not specifically a dealership job but definitely a good shop. Realigning some dashes is a pain in the ****.

Where is my heater core and what is the best way to access it? Vehicle is leaking antifreeze on to driver and passenger floor.


The heater core is located behind the dash on the passenger side. You can either work on the floor looking up under the dash or remove the dashboard to access it.

Wet floor boards on both driver and passenger sides.


check the seals on the doors, also check heater core coil which is under the dash, if your smelling a sweet smell it could be antifreeze leaking out of the heater core

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

2004 Chevrolet Tahoe-front passenger side floor is wet


Check the heater core unit located underneath the dashboard on the passenger side of the vehicle. Even though your car's antifreeze is red, it may appear to be clear when there is only a small amount present. Was the liquid in the vehicle sticky and have any smell to it?
