Hey Chris==Some radator repair shops repair evaporator cores but I persomally am not a fan of it. If it rotted through in one place I don't think it will be long until ti rots through at another. It is a big job to replace it plus you have to have a refrigerant recycler to dispose of the refrigerant. Goodluckjoe
