THE HEATER CORE IS THE SOURCE OF HEAT FOR THE INTERIOR OF YOUR CAR, TRUCK OR SUV. IT IS TECHNICALLY PART OF THE COOLING SYSTEM IN YOUR VEHICLE.
Maintenance and Care:
Proper maintenance of your cooling system will help keep the heater in good condition. Depending on the type of coolant used in your vehicle, coolant typically should be changed about every two years or 24,000 miles. Please refer to your owner’s manual for factory recommended maintenance intervals for your specific vehicle. Typical signs of a faulty heater core are poor output from the heater, coolant on your vehicle’s interior floor, or a strange smell while the heat is on. Problems with a heater core generally get worse with time, so if you notice any of these symptoms, have the system checked by the expert technicians at AAMCO.
