Heater Repair

Heater Core Repair Service

You may have heard the advice that if you car is overheating, open all the windows and run the heater with the fan going at full blast. This is because the heating system is actually a secondary cooling system that mirrors the main cooling system on your car.

Heater Core Repairs

The heater core, which is located in the dashboard of your car, is really a small radiator. The heater fan blows air through the heater core and into the passenger compartment of your car. The heater core draws its hot coolant from the cylinder head and returns it to the pump - so the heater works regardless of whether the thermostat is open or closed.

Thermostat Repair

Once the coolant temperature rises to between 180 and 195 F (82 - 91 C), the thermostat starts to open, allowing fluid to flow through the radiator. When the coolant reaches 200 to 218 F (93 - 103 C), the thermostat is fully open.

The secret of the thermostat lies in the small cylinder located on the engine-side of the device. This cylinder is filled with a wax that begins to melt at around 180 F (different thermostats open at different temperatures, but 180 F is a common one). A rod connected to the valve presses into this wax. When the wax melts, it expands significantly, pushing the rod out of the cylinder and opening the valve.The wax just expands a good bit more because it is changing from a solid to a liquid in addition to expanding from the heat.
