Auto Heater Core Replacement in Albany
Adams Autoworx Albany offers comprehensive auto cooling and heating system services, including heater core replacement. Heater core is a crucial element of automotive heating and cooling system. A clogged or leaking heater core cannot be repaired – it has to be replaced.
Located inside the car, usually on the passenger side, heater core accepts heated coolant from the engine, and uses it to warm the air that will be sent to the vents, and into interior of your vehicle.
Our full service Albany auto repair facility offers auto heating and cooling system testing and repairs. If you suspect heater core problems, we will first pressure test the system to see if the heater core is leaking, check the heater hose, and verify that the blower motor is functioning correctly. If the heater core turns out to be faulty, we will replace it, refill the radiator with proper combination of coolant/water, remove air from the system. Once these procedures are completed, we will turn on the engine and test the system under normal operating conditions. We will check that the system is indeed blowing warm air, and does it correctly under different temperature settings. We will also check for any coolant leaks, of course.
What are the typical signs of heater core problems?
- Steam coming from vents when heater is on
