SOURCE: replace heater core on 2002 Buick Rendezvous

Hi there,

Well the heater core is located under the dash on the passenger side, usually cased in a plastic housing.You may have to remove the glove box in order to have access to. And when you get to the point, when you are disconnecting the coolant lines and remove the core you use some clothes to protect the carpet as fluid may drip. Post comments for further help or information........
Good Luck!!

Thanks for using FixYa!!

2002 Oldsmobile Aurora 3.5 I need to know how to bypass the heater core please and thank you

I'm sorry to say You can't bypass the Heater core by doing so You'd have a cold vehicle inside in the winter time plus they don't manufacture parts for such a procedure. so You'll have to replace it.

Heater core leaking

When the heater core leaks engine coolant, the sure way to fix it is to replace the core. It is a small raidator made much like the engine radiator. You can try radiator "Stop Leak". If it is a very small leak you may get lucky with the stop leak for a while. Sooner or later the core will need replacing.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Step by step directions on how to remove heater core on a 1995 old aurora

Remove the access panels(s) or the split heater/air conditioning case to gain acess to the heater core.
* Remove the heater coolant hoses.
* Remove the cable and/or vacuum control lines (if equipped).
* Remove the heater core securing brackets and/or clamps.
* Lift the core from the case. Do not use force. Take care not to damage the fins of the heater core when removing.
* To reinstall the heater core, reverse the removal steps. When the heater core leaks and must be repaired or replaced, it is a very difficult and time-consuming job primarily because of the core's location deep within the firewall of the car. For this reason always leak test a replacement heater core before installation.

Good luck.

Not enough heat out of my olds aurora's heater

If the engine temperature is correct, then I would suggest the heater core is partially blocked and needs to be replaced.

Radiator fluid leak on the passenger side

you need to replace the heater core. This can be bypassed in the engine compartment until the core is replaced (core R&R is a big job).

2001 Aurora - blows only 'warm' air

Your problem is either a clogged heater core, or the air temp control blend door actuator, in order to check for a clogged core feel the heater core hoses in the eng compartment, they should both be hot, one a little hotter than the other, if they are the core is ok and the blend door actuator needs to be replaced.
