Heater core in a Dodge Intrepid 2000
My mechanic told me my heater core in my car needs to be replaced. It's $800 for the
job, but he said the car is not worth doing the repair.
I keep putting water into the reservoir, sometimes a lot and sometimes a little bit.
He said I can keep doing it until I get a different car, but is there any way to do a "band
aid" job on it?
I need the car to last about six more months and then I'm getting a different car.
You can try a radiator stop leak, it may work if the hole is small. Make sure you follow the directions, don't keep adding more because you can clog the radiator passes and cause more problems then you have now. There are brands like Royal Purple, Bars Solv-Tec, I guess you will needs to read the reviews for each of the products.
Use Bars Radiator and Cooling System Stop leak I have had very good success with this product. And just like joemom said do not continue to add more if it does not work the first time hoping it will work that is when you can clog up the cooling system.
