Best Practices
  • We recommend using a high-quality replacement heater core. Cheap heater cores tend to leak and not last very long.

  • The heater hoses should be inspected when replacing a heater core. Problems with the heater hoses can cause similar problems to a failing heater core and are less expensive to correct.

Common Symptoms
  • A failed heater core can result in the car windows fogging up, coolant leaking under the dashboard, a sweet smell inside the vehicle, and mystery coolant loss.

  • Worn engine mounts allow the engine to move more than normal, which can damage heater core connections. Worn mounts should be replaced to avoid damage to the new heater hoses.
