The heater provides warm air to the passengers’ compartment, and even if considered as part of the air conditioning system, the heater is actually linked to the cooling system. The part distributes the heat generated by the engine in action. Due to its position between the engine and the passenger compartment, this part is one of the most labour intensive to replace.

Common Causes of Failure
Much like the radiator, the heater suffers from lack of regular cooling system maintenance. In such cases, the coolant fluid’s PH level might increase or become contaminated which in turn corrodes the aluminum of the part. Due to its high position in the cooling system, the heater is affected first by low coolant level. It may also be distorted and leaking after over-heating.
Always replace the heater core at first sign of symptoms to insure that the coolant fluid does not spill in passenger cabin
