Thanks rentech: replaced heater core

Recommended Posts

Had a coolant smell come through the cabin with the heat or AC on, been there since I bought it in April but its been getting worse.

Performed a search here and found a thread by loren explaining the removal. Got the part from pelican and installed it this weekend. At 1st I wasn't convinced I found my issue as the heater core casing was bone dry....every pic of this repair showed a little puddle at the bottom.

I guess mine wasnt leaking that much yet. You can see some small leaks and the side had an oily coating.....same coating that was beginning to apply itself to the bottom of my windshield when the heater was turned on.

Here some pics of the heater core. Very easy job, 2 beer job. Easier than replacing the voltage regulator [emoji1] thanks for the pointers I got here. Wish fixing my scored cylinders was this easy.

Edit: Not sure why the IMG tags don't work here...sorry...no pics

I have all the tell tale signs:

-sooty left hand exhaust

-high oil consumption

-tapping noise from bank2

Otherwise she pulls great, idles great, no check engine lights, I'm almost tempted to just keep driving it and adding oil but get a lot of different feedback. Some say stop driving it immediately, some say just add oil and drive.

What's the consensus here about scored cylinders?
