2011 Laredo : Dealer says change heater core
So last week I have noticed more or less no heat in my Jeep. I took it to the dealer in the night and picked it up the next day.
The dealer is saying it's the heater core. They did the following
- Coolant check
- Readjusted the vent door's on dash
The tech determined it was the heater core as after these checks were made the Jeep at idle had no heat but when driven at 2000 and higher rpm the heat was working fine.
When I picked it up (Saturday morning) the heat was working fine through Sunday night (was warmer then normal) Until today.
I had the Jeep running this evening for about 20 min and it was cold , went for a drive around the neighborhood and sure enough was warm again.
Normal I would take their advice but my vehicle is out of the basic warranty by 2 months (56,000km)
The service manager did manager to get the repairs done for me under goodwill but I am responsible for half ($560.00cad)
I have until Friday to make a decision, what do you guys think ? could it be the heater core or should I be checking something else?
