What is a heater core?
The heater core is an important component of your car’s cooling system, which also includes a heater valve, water pump, cooling fan, radiator and thermostat among other items. The heater core is the main component that is responsible for the heat used in the passenger compartment. It is usually located right behind your dashboard deeply buried among a pile of several other parts. In the picture below, the heater core is shown with the blower motor fan.
Symptoms of a bad heater core
A lot of drivers fail to realize there is something wrong with their heating or cooling system until the engine starts overheating or the heater stops working. While these are the final symptoms of problematic heater core, the initial symptoms include excessive fogging and coolant smell from your AC vents. Also, if your vehicle is guzzling a lot of coolant lately, there is something wrong again. It is advisable to report your car to Everything Auto New York on the very first symptoms of a problematic heater core as this may allow us to address the issues at a minimal cost, avoiding you the expenses of replacement of major repairs.
Repair or replace?
Heater cores are expensive parts which can cost you upwards of $500! Even more on certain models of cars. Do not panic yet as we at Everything Auto NY are not here to simply replace parts and provide you exorbitant bills. All the car owners in the New York areas of Queens and Nassau County who have come to us for auto repair are well aware of our ‘Maximum quality at Minimum prices’ motto.
Our first step is to thoroughly examine your heater core and its life and provide you with an estimate for both replace and repair. In any case, we ensure that the labor costs are set to a minimum which is usually not the case with heater cores.
