Problem Reported: Coolant Leakage from Heater Core, Possible Leakage onto Passenger Side Foot Well
January 07, 2011, 10:28 AM
<p>Electrolysis can cause repeated failures of the <a id="ce_82" class="ct_selected tooltip" href="/heater-core">heater core</a> and <a id="ce_96" class="ct_selected tooltip" href="/radiator">radiator</a>. The diagnosing technician should check for voltage present in the <a id="ce_80" class="ct_selected tooltip" href="/coolant">coolant</a>, with the battery disconnected, because electrical current in the coolant causes electrolysis. Corroded or deteriorated parts should be replaced, and the coolant should be flushed. Ground straps can be added to help prevent future corrosion of components.</p>
