I believe my heater core is either clogged or its gone bad. I have a 92 acura legend.

Asked by Jan 16, 2015 at 05:14 PM about the 1992 Acura Legend Sedan FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My heater doesn't blow any hot air at
all or any air period. Im also losing
coolant very fast. Can my heater
core be the reason as to why I'm
losing coolant so fast? There isn't
any coolant leaking into my
passenger side carpet, there's just
the smell of coolant inside my car.
Can it be my water pump or a weak
radiator cap?

Where is the coolant leaking to? Sounds like you have a head gasket issue.

I'm not sure where the coolant is leaking to. I don't see any leaks on the ground.

Could be leaking only when driving, could be leaking into your oil. Check your oil and make sure there is no coolant in it and check your coolant and make sure there is no oil in it. Bottom line is that you are leaking coolant and when your coolant is low, you lose your heat. Find the leak. If you can't find the leak yourself, take the vehicle to a mechanic and they will run a simple pressure test and will find your leak fast.
