Here is advice:

  • Sorry friend but a repair on a heater coil is just about as much work as replacing it. Your best bet is to get a second hand one and just change it. If you attempt to fix the old one it will probably leak from another place. One thing that you can do is buy a bottle of stop leak if the leak is not too big.
  • Forget a second hand one by getting a second hand one you could be in the same boat as you were before you started the job. Go out buy a new one and be done with it. They are usually not to expensive and some places guarntee them for a lifetime. I just paid 23 dollars for mine lifetime warranty. Oh yeah that warranty does not include labor if it goes out again.
  • Forget the second hand one. replace it with a new one. it is not a big or difficult job

If the leak is around a fitting and you can see it, then it may be repairable. Unfortunately many heaters leak at the welded seams and there is no satisfactory repair for that. You may well need a new heater.

Where is the heater core on an 87 escort?

It is inside the heating A/C housing. The dash has to come out to get to it. A very involved repair. Even the most experienced master mechanics cringe at having to do a heater core repair. I would suggest putting some aluminum stop leak in the radiator. It will stop the leak in the heater core and will save you the grief of pulling the dash out.
