Re: Heater core keeps going bad

Do you have any aftermarket electric stuff which draws the ground/negative from the chassis?

Cheers,
Steve

Interesting reading about the subject...........

Antifreeze is the lifeblood of your car's cooling system

Re: Heater core keeps going bad

Had a heater core leaking in another car, and a reputable mechanic who runs a custom speed shop recommended K seal to me. He has used in many vehicles and never failed. I used one bottle and after 50k still no leaks, and I run the heck outa the motor. It has temperature sensative ceramic fibers that react and coagulate to peramanently seal the leak, without restricting flow in the cooling system. I've not changed coolant since adding it and zero issues. For just a few bucks, can't say enough about this product.

Eventhough this product can very well seal any leak, it could hide a problem named straw voltage electrolysis. If for example the ground for an electrical component is not working perfectly, the current will search for an other way back to the battery. This can go v ia the cooling system, which liquid can become a good conductor, and eat away the aluminum. Over time this can destroy the engine cooling system internally.

Re: Heater core keeps going bad

Actually besides my Fusion Hybrid, my husbands SRT8 is the only vehicle we've had that hasn't been modified. It's bone stock! Fully loaded from factory so there's enough electrical in it to cause a problem already.
