Automotive Heater Core Replacement in Castro Valley
Welcome to Adams Autoworx, the premier Castro Valley auto repair shop. We offer heater core replacement among the many automotive a/c and heating services we provide.
Usually located inside the vehicle, underneath the dashboard, the heater core is a crucial element of your car’s heating system. As the blower motor sends air across the heater core, it gets warmed up and is then directed into the cabin.
Our Castro Valley auto repair shop offers full range of automotive heating system testing and repairs. The first step is the pressure test, to make sure there are no leaks. If it turns out that the heater core is leaking, or that it is clogged, it will need to be replaced.
After we replace the heater core, fill the radiator again, and bleed air from the system, we will turn the vehicle on and test the heating system at different settings.
At Adams Autoworx we recommend regular vehicle maintenance, including fluids inspections and replacement. When it comes to coolant replacement, the typical interval is 25,000 – 40,000 miles depending on the vehicle. Regular coolant replacement keeps the entire system functioning at optimal levels, and keeps any contaminants from clogging the heater core.
Heater core problems can manifest as:
- Coolant leaking into the car
- When heater is turned on, steam coming from vents
- Hot air coming from the heater, but not as hot as you expected
Rest assured that our nationally ASE certified technicians have both experience and state-of-the-art tools to professionally diagnose and repair heater core or other heating or a/c system issues.
