Question Asked: Heater cores?
February 24, 2012, 06:30 PM
I just bought my 95 SAAB 9000 Griffin Edition a couple of weeks ago. The guy I bought it from said it needed a new radiator, and a heater core. I bought the new radiator, but before I buy a new heater core I want to make sure it needs a new heater core for sure. Alot of people have been saying that alot of the time it's the o-rings. Either way the guy I bought it from said the heater core was leaking into the car. When I looked at it, the hoses were cut... All in all I guess my question is, is does anyone know how to remove the heater core? Do I have to remove the dash, or anything from inside the car to take out the heater core. Or, can I just remove it from under the hood?

<p>The <a id="ce_155" class="ct_glossary tooltip" href="/automatic-transaxle">transmission</a> pressure control solenoid may fail causing erratic shifting. Our technicians tell us that partial dis-assembly of the transmission is necessary to replace a failed pressure control solenoid.</p>
Problem Reported: The Constant Control Relay Module May Fail

<p>There are reports of failures of the CCRM or Constant Control Relay Module. The CCRM has relays and switches inside that control or provide power to the <span class="ct_glossary tooltip">engine <a id="ce_58" class="ct_selected tooltip" href="/engine-cooling-fan">cooling fan</a></span>, AC clutch (to engage the <a id="[object HTMLInputElement]" class="ct_glossary tooltip" href="/air-conditioning-compressor"><span class="ct_glossary tooltip">AC compressor</span></a>), <a id="ce_77" class="ct_glossary tooltip" href="/fuel-pump">fuel pump</a> and powertrain control module (PCM). Single switches or relays can fail internally causing a number of different symptoms including no start conditions (inoperative <span class="ct_glossary tooltip">fuel pump</span> or PCM), engine running warm due to inoperative <span class="ct_glossary tooltip">cooling fan</span>, or the AC might not blow cold air.</p>
Problem Reported: Intake Manifold Gaskets May Leak Coolant or Engine Oil
