Anyone had problems with a leaky heater core????


Yup... every single one I've replaced would only last about 6 months. Till I had my friend reinforce the last one. He said they were really thin in some areas. I have a spare one (that's not reinforced) just in case.

Could you explain a bit about the reinforcement?


The core is thin in some areas (all the aftermarket replacements I installed had this issue) and causes it to expand and seperate with the pressure. He soldered the core where it needed it and I haven't had a problem since.
