There is no situation that cannot be improved with a small but well-placed explosive.

Strange thing that heater cores never seem to be problematic in July. Consider replacing your fan motor while you're in there, threads in the FAQ as well and it really adds nothing to the job of swapping out the heater core.

....I'm not smart, but I can lift heavy things.......

Fill out your PROFILE, and don't forget to look in the FAQ for writeups

Hahaha

I don't even have one, but I guess the warmer you are, the more sensitive to cold you become, my beautiful girlfriend was telling me the other day that the Jeep was too cold, we were at the mountains at around 54 degrees, I regretted not having the core then, I might have made her feel better, I guess I am going to go thru this... ohh the things you do for love

not that hard to do... but having a buddy to help when putting it back in will help big time. especially if you have the a/c unit to maneuver around
