97 1.0 Heater Core Replacement

Heat went out in my 1.0 hatchback. Using an infared gun the outlet pipe of the heater core was roughly 45° cooler than the inlet. So the process began of changing the heater core. Let me just say, and excuse my language, this shit ain't no fun. I've got about 6.5 hours into this fuckery and it sucks. Heater core is replaced and heater suitcase, condenser, and blower motor are back in. Now all that's left is refilling the coolant system and figuring out exactly where all 74 screws belong lol. I'm seriously debating not putting half of this crap back in.

hmm-maybe you tube videos can help-I know it's too late now but I would have tried cleaning the old one first-

After removing the old one, I don't think flushing it would've done much good. Looks like a previous owner how used a ridiculous amount of stop leak. It was so gunked up with rust colored thick sludge that I understand why nothing was passing through efficiently. Oscar is almost back together. Will post up whether it fixes my "no heat" issue in a few days hopefully.

yeah I'm sure you're right I heard that stuff is nasty on cores-looking forward to an update and I'm betting your heat will be much better-

Console is put back together, coolant system is serviced, and the heat feels great! Ended up pulling over a milk jug worth of squirrel nest, nuts, and rat turds out of my vents and condenser suitcase. After clearing all the tubes and boxes of the debris it blows awesome. Drove it to work tonight (15° Memphis, TN) and it was well worth the hassle. Next project will be a new clutch kit! Throwout bearing has been grinding for quite some time now :rasp
