Question about 1996 Oldsmobile Achieva
I have a '96 and I had to take out my center counsole. After that I had to remove the pan cover that it is housed by. It's like 10-12 screws that take a 5.5 mm wrench. They're pretty much all easy to get out but the ones on the bottom of the housing are a pain. Best way, I found, is to peel back the carpeting the best you can and get them with like, a wobble or a universal joint for your socket wrench. A COMBINATION WRENCH WILL NOT FIT!! It's a tedious job. It took me about 6 hours to do it, and I had absolutely no clue where to start on this thing. The reason they go bad is because they have plastic tubes coming from the heater hoses that pretty much just smashed over the heater core's barbed inlet/outlet. Your replacement will have aluminum lines that can be swiveled. Here's another pain in the ****...Twisting the tubes just right without bending them will be tough, but possible...obviously. You're looking at about a day's worth of work and about $30. Also the part number of the heater core is 398310. It's a Proliance brand.
