    Anyone know what one of these goes for for a late model chevy? Pretty sure that mine just went out on the ride home in my '95 tahoe. Also does anyone know if I can just connect the 2 hoses together that run to the heater coil and just bypass the coil until I have a new one?

    How'd you bust that?
    Now you get to find out if it comes out from under the dash or out the fire wall. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    already know that it comes out from under the dash. Don't know how it broke just started smelling antifreeze. At first I thought it was something in the engine, but it never overheated. Then I got home and grabbed my jacket off the floor and wham! soaking wet!. I knoew at that point it was the heater core.

    Should be $29.99 at Autozone. They list a front and rear heater core for it. Rear's not available
