Inspection

  1. NOTE: A coolant leak in the heater hose could follow the heater core tube to the heater core and appear as a leak in the heater core.

    Inspect for evidence of coolant leakage at the heater hose to heater core attachments.
  1. NOTE: Spring-type clamps are installed as original equipment. Installation and overtightening of nonspecified clamps can cause leakage at the heater hose connection and damage the heater core.

    Check the integrity of the heater hose clamps.
  1. Drain the coolant from the cooling system. Refer to Cooling System Draining, Filling, and Bleeding procedure in Group 303.
  1. Disconnect the heater hoses from the heater core.
