augh i was trying to put those braided steel dress up sleeves over my heater hose.

when i tried to put the hose back on the heatercore neck it was so tight i had to force it on in a twisting/pushing motion, well after i got it on i saw fluid leaking from under what looked like the passenger floor.

well i guess i must have cracked the neck on the core because its pouring out inside the car from behind the glove box.

i have no idea how to fix this.

i assume i have to replace the core itself but have no idea how to get to it.

so i have a few questions

1. to do it right how do i do this? is there a ez way to swap it out?

2. if i decided to bypass the core and just feed one hose from the intake straight to the waterpump is this a bad idea?

thx for the help

i still may fix the core later but this way i can drive to the parts store lol.

I've been bypassing my heater core for the last 6yrs. Wont hurt a thing. In fact, I'd like to eliminate the whole heater core/box system and put in delete plates on the firewall.
