4. How much does it cost to repair a heater core on a Dodge Stratus 2005?

Before I would invest in such things , I would be sure to check the quality and level of the coolant , next be sure that the thermostat is opening , you can test the coolant with the engine cold and a anti-freeze tester that you can buy at walmarts etc for about 8 bucks , plus you can try with the engine cold started to squeeze the thermostat hose if pressure builds up then more then likely the thermostat is okay. Next you want to make sure no leaks exist and also that no air clogs or air bubbles are in the coolant system so check under the hood I believe those vehicles have a coolant air bleeder valve around the thermostat housing area. You can try also to switch the two small hoses on the heater-core around with the engine cold and then start it up let it warm up put the heat on full and after a few mins , allow the engine to cool down and switch the hoses around again then try the heat again once the engine is restarted and warmed up again. There are shops out there that will offer you free estimates and coolant system checks , be sure you get more then one quote etc and have them show you and explain exactly what is faulty and why. I believe those are a good 7 to 9 hrs in the book so be prepared to pay several hrs of labour fees but some shops can do it perhaps in 4 to 5 hrs and may give you a brake on the book's rates.So I would look around sometimes the smaller family run shops or small town business's will be the cheapest. Hope that helps and best of luck.By the way here are two signs of a bad heater-core when the heat is on the inside of the windshield develops a mist or grease like substance on it and that means the heater-core or leaking or you will have a odd odour in the vehicle or coming out of the vents with the heat on.

.Here is the full heater core guide for those that do not want to pay the high costs of having someone else do it for you. the parts required were: new core, new heater core hoses (if the old ones are worn out) and a new restrictor (if your current hoses do not have one, otherwise just cut it out and use it in the new hoses), and a helper to help guide the new core in.. .do not buy an off brand (autozone, advance, etc) core, put up the cash for the. Ford. unit ($50) it's well worth it. the restrictor cost me $20, but I've heard of people using 1/4 drive 13mm sockets instead. either will work.. .it is recommended that you pick up two lengths of hose that are nice and long so you can hook up the new heater core to the engine outside the car and test it for leaks.. .there are a couple sites on the net that detail how to change the core without pulling the dash off, but once we got enough the dash loose to pry it up (includes removing the gauge pod) we decided that removing the whole dash was just a few more steps away.. .note that you DON'T have to remove or discharge ANY a/c components!. .ok here we go:. .underhood, remove the two heater hoses from the heater core at the firewall. (be prepared for antifreeze coming out of the hoses) next look a little to the left and you will see the black a/c accumulator. this has a bracket that secures it to the firewall. this bracket needs to come off, completely. after it is off, remove the nuts from the 2 studs that the bracket secured to. this effectively gives the evaporator casing an inch or two of play so you can open up the heater core lid later.. .now inside the car.. .i HIGHLY recommend labeling setting aside all screws with their appropriate parts that way you do not end up with 5 extra screws like i did. .remove the top dash speaker panels. (they screw in at the side) and also remove the dash screw at the inside side of each panel. i recommend removing the speakers too (when the dash is reinstalled, it is a pain to plug in the speakers while balancing a loose dash.. .remove the 2 screws on each end of the dash (you will have to pry out the trim there, (loosen the kick panels to achieve this). .remove the gauge pod, and the panels underneath the steering column. the headlight switch and hazard light switch come out by inserting a screwdriver in the outside side and pushing a tab and then pulling the switches out.. .remove the defroster grill at the top by prying it at the edges and remove all the dash screws underneath.. .remove the glove box.. .remove hvac controls and unscrew the heat/cold control from the panel and remove all the connectors except the vacuum lines. then slide the hvac panel back into the dash. this allows you to leave those vacuum lines connected to it.. .remove the stereo.. .remove the shift boot and knob. remove the armrest and the entire center console. (screws to the left and right of the hvac controls). .this might be a good time to vacuum underneat the center console as it collects large amounts of dirt and other goodies. .remove all the screws from the underside of the dash.. .remove the guage cluster. there are two snap in wire plugs on either side and then of course the speedo cable. remove this pushing in on the tab and pulling it off. after the gauge cluster comes out, remove the two screws behind it that secure that part of the dash to the metal behind it.. .remove the dimmer switch control. .after this, the dash should be pretty loose. feed all the cables that poke thru the dash back into their holes (label the holes if you can not remember). try to pry up and back (towards you) to remove the dash. there is a yellow vacuum line that runs to the middle of the dash, make sure you unhook this before removing the dash.. .with the dash gone the heater box will be staring you in the face in the middle of the car. the lid has a red/white/blue bundle of wires running by it, which is how you can tell where it is. remove the 2 screws that hold the front of the lid down and pry up on the lid a little and you will see the core inside, ready to come out. now the entire casing (it goes from the center of the car all the way to the right side of the car) can be out an inch or two and tilted down (provided you removed the nuts to the bolts that the a/c accumulator bracket secured to in the engine compartment.. .go to the engine compartment and spray the gasket that surrounds the heater core pipes with WD40 and wiggle them around a bunch to loosen them up.. .now, back inside the car, pry open the lid with a long screwdriver or socket set or crowbar and place a 3/8ths rachet extension under each side of the lid. .this should give you enough room to get your hands on the core and pull it out. if not, try re-arranging the evaporator casing some so you have more clearance to pry the lid up.. .once the core is removed, you have to clean out all the old sealant. this is VITAL. when the new core is installed, if you keep this old hard sealant in there it will tweak the core and cause leaks soon. i used simple green, a small flat blade, and paper towels to clean out the gunk. it is only on the bottom of where the old core sat, none is one the underside of the lid. when you are cleaning, most of the gunk will come off in little chunks and fall down further into the casing. i recommend getting a vacuum with a hose attachment and getting all that crap out. if not, when you turn on the blower, the gunk will fly out the vents (like it did to me). .when all the gunk is cleaned out, get some black rtv (dries soft, allows the core to expand and contract with heat and cold without tweaking it) and use generous amounts to form a seal.. .now comes the installation of the new core. make sure the gasket in the firewall is WD40 would up for easy install. have your helper stay in the engine compartment to help guide the core tubes thru the holes while you insert the core into the case. we got mine lined up the 2nd try and it was pretty easy.. .make another bead of rtv or blue silicone on the lid cover and then screw it back down.. .now you have a choice: put the whole car back together, then hook up the heater core hoses to test it, or go eat something and come back, hook up the heater core, and test it before you put the car back together. the rtv needs some time to set up before you go tweaking on it while putting the core hoses on.. .installation is reverse of removal, obviously. after that you will enjoy nice heat and no green puddle of death or green haze on the glass.. .elapsed time for us was 6 hours, and 1.5 of that was trying to figure out why the evaporator case would not budge (missed the nuts in the firewall)Is there a way to get free themes & wallpaper for sidekick lx?The LX would not have the skill to apply downloaded textile as a hoop tone. the only way you may get ring tones on your lx is to get carry of them from the get carry of catalog on the telephone
Is It a Good Idea to Bypass a Heater Core This Way for Colder Air Conditioning?
It may help, But you are seating yourself up for failure. Messing with the cooling system is a bad idea. If you disrupt the flow it could change the way the system works and cause it to over heat. Ive always thought bypassing the heater core is ghetto, But admit ive done it a time or two myself. The better option, and the option I would most recommend is to remove your dash and replace the seals that are made from the factory to block the heater core from the vents when the a/c is on. But your idea would work, I do not know how well. It would depend on how much heat was making it's way from the heater core to the vents in the dash. You could also buy a 160* T-stat, that will lower the temp in the heater core by 30* 1. Central air conditioning?In the house we just moved out of, (newer, well insulated house) we set it at 68 in the winter and 72 in the summer. It did not play havoc with the utility bills and was comfortable. If we got too hot in the summer, we sat on the back porch for a couple of minutes, then came back in, so it seemed relatively much cooler.2. How do I know if my outdoor air conditioning unit needs to be replaced, or if it's just the fan motor?You have someone that knows what they are doing LOOK at the unit3. in window air conditioning question?I even have heard great things approximately those transportable ones with the exhaust hose. i replaced into thinking one for my mattress room. No usual air in my place the two. Plus, it particularly is extremely achieveable that a storage window in simple terms ought to not be stable sufficient to hold a window unit. maximum are not built with an identical wall (and window) intensity that a house has & the unit ought to not stability nicely with out some style of exterior help, like stilts for the decrease back end of the window unit. With a 4 hundred squarefeet area, you ought to be waiting to get the transportable one for particularly much less costly. do not choose a great BTU score4. Central Air Conditioning help please?I agree with tipster. My mobile home when I moved in, prior to changing over the electricity and all to our name was on continuous fan, the renters prior had ran the fan continuous to try and circulate cool air, and its cool not cold. I just had a unit and A Coil installed and it ran about 2900 but that depends on the unit, an large house will need a larger unit. I would call the people who told you it had air, and find out why its not cold. If it does have a unit, the unit could be needing coolant replaced5. How did people living in the south survive before air conditioning?they adapted to their situations and made do with what they had. the world has become so modernized and lazy that people think they can not do without the comforts of technology that we have today. the truth of the matter is, if we HAD to do without a/c for the rest of our lives, then we would adapt to our circumstances.6. How to cool a room down without air conditioning?Use a radiant barrier foil in your attic, and some thick curtains to block out the sun7. Vehicle air conditioning repair question?First off, let me say that if you are going to be your own service center than you need to have the proper tools to do the job, the training, and the experience to know what is going on in a system. This means you must have a freon recapture/vacume station and you need the set of lines and gauges to know exactly what is going on in your system. Air conditioning 101: Starting at the compressor it takes your freon from a low pressure fluid and turns it to a high pressure fluid. From there it travels to the receiver drier (which filters your freon and removes any moisture from the freon) it goes to the evaporator in your fan assembly in your dash. As it takes the heat from the air running through those coils it turns your freon into a gas form. (Your compressor cannot pump gas but only liquid) so from there it goes to the condenser in front of your car and through convection turns back into a low pressure fluid once again. Now, since you have replaced all the lines and your compressor, you did not know that once you open up your system that you expose your receiver drier to sucking in all the moisture from the humid atmosphere. So your receiver drier is most likely saturated at this point and will never allow your system to properly cool. Your system also needed to have a vacume pulled on it for at least 4-6 hours. This not only pulls the system into a good vacume to receiver the new freon, but it also burns up any moisture that could be in the system (except for the receiver drier). So in short, replace your receiver drier, vacume the system down correctly, install the correct gauges and charge the system with new freon.
I Think My Heater Core Might Be Bad?
Well, that's about it. I've done a few of those, hardly any fun. 4 to 6 hours worth of work, and the core on top of that. Sorry for the bad news1. Heater Core / Matrix Problems LEAKING Need Help & ADVICE!?Cooling systems have to be presurized to work right. If the core is leaking badly the system will never develope pressure and you are looking at serious problems. Water wo not flow right and hoses will collapse from pump suction. Just take the two hoses off the heater core and join them together with a piece of copper tubing2. What are the indications your heater core is bad on an '88 Plymouth Caravelle?You said it "antifreeze odour." Also you will lose coolant. and may notice dampness on the floor board most likely on the passenger side3. I just installed a new heater core and thermastat, and now have no heat. What could be wrong?Check your thermostat. It could of been put in the wrong way4. heater core on 1994 mbz model c280, have a mosture issue in cabin shop say $2400 to replace?That's crazy. It's about a four hour job. There are probably enough MB drivers that just pay whatever they ask, they do not have any need to give you an honest quote5. what does the heater core in my car do?It is a heat exchange. When you turn the heater on, hot coolant from the engine/radiator is pumped though it; air blown across the core then heats up.6. 1993 Chevy s10 needs heater core?outside in engine compartment plug the lines heading into the heater/disconnect hoses and plug with capped pipe from the depot7. have a 2001 pathfinder, heater won't blow heat, what could be the problem, heater core?It could be a bunch of things but I had the same thing happen to me with my van last week. It stopped blowing hot air even when it was warmed up. Turned out it was leaking water. I was almost totally out of water/antifreeze. I had the leak repaired and fill back up with antifreeze. My heat works perfectly again. Just thought I would share since it could be something as simple as this. Good luck!8. 97 VW VR6 JETTA, possible heater core leakage windshield fogs up engine area dry thermostat & H2O are ok?Usually any coolant in the interior is heater core related. I just did one on my Jeep9. HHHHEEEELLLLPPP!!!!!!! those anyone know were the heater core on a 98 dodge neon is?you have to remove the dash out of it and also remove the heater box assembly on it plus evacuate the air conditioning system on it,you need a repair manual on it because there's too many steps on here to try and explain it ,there's many wires to take loose and put back together also,its not the part that's expensive its the labor on getting it out in,get the manual for the complete instructions this way if you run in to a problem you will have the book to refer to,and if you have not ever done one you bette be really careful there's a lot of parts that you can mess up doing this job,then it will cost you more to get it back together again,good luck10. Bypassing the heater core 95 Cavalier 4cl?You should not need to get under the car to do this one. The connections in and out to the heater core should be up high on the firewall on the passenger side of the car. You will just need a fitting to connect one hose to another and a way to secure them from flopping around loose since they will not be secured to the firewall, but connected to each other. You should be able to re-use the clamps that connect them to the fittings on the firewall to connect them to the fitting you put between them to bypass. A piece of copper pipe about three inches long in a diameter that fits should be fine to connect the two hoses. Maybe use some zip ties to secure it to something nearby, even the firewall fittings you disconnect the hoses from if you can make it work. Make sure to bleed out any air,.
