Buy a kit at Wal-Mart or auto parts comes with adaptors, fittings, and instructions
The heater core is inside the hvac housing behind the dash.
It would be best to disconnect the coolant lines and flush the core after the radiator flush. This will clear any sediment from the core.
The heater core is inside the hvac housing under the dash.
I also have a 2000 jeep wrangler. This year has a problem with the heater core plugging up. You can either try to flush it out, or just replace the heater core.
You have to remove the dash and HVAC housing to access the heater core. how would i do that
Prestone makes a good inline flush kit which is available at WallyWorld. You can also just disconnect the two heater hoses and patch a water hose to one and blow water out of the other, then reverse.
Do you live in an area that you need your heater?
The two hoses that run thru the firewall into the heater core should both be hot. Check them with your hand; you may need to flush/replace your heater core. I hope this helps you. Mark
Either pull the hoses off of the heater core and flush the core out or pull the hoses off the block and flush the heater core through the hoses..............
between 6 and 8 hours
I wouldn't think you could flush a heater core. you can flush a radiator. Heater core you would have to replace if it is leaking or stopped up
The Haynes Jeep Cherokee 1984 - 1996 book has 7 different diagrams which show how to do that repair.
Check the vacuum operated valve at the hose going to the heater core.
Heater core may be defective
No, the entire dash has to be removed.
there is a whole in the heater core
No. one heater core, two airflow control doors. Called blend doors, very prone to breaking.
The heater core may be plugged or bad. You can either flush the heater core and the 2 lines running thru the firewall to the heater core or you can replace the heater core.
Yes, if it is leaking and the coolant level is low.
You can flush the block thru the line to the heater core at the firewall. This will flush the heater core also.
1. Is coolant flowing through the heater hoses and heater core? Once the care is fully warmed up, running, and the heater on, the hoses going to and from the heater core should be hot to the touch. If not, coolant may not be flowing. 2. Is the heater door, under where people's feet are, broken? This URL may help explain http://www.heatertreater.net/jeep Cherokee 97-04.html
