    Heater Core Replacement (2000 Camaro LS1)

    so I am loosing some radiator fluid and I can smell it inside my car from time to time and always smell it after I get on the throttle and hardcore drive the car for miles and miles. So I know its gotta be the heater core leaking else the smell would not be inside the car and be outside.

    SO since its gotta be the heater core..
    Who has first hand experience or an idea of what its going to take to get to it.
    IS there a fast way to get at the core OR does the entire Dash have to come out to get to it.

    Also I plan on bypassing the heater core for summer time driving and WISH TO KNOW what size the heater core input and outout ports are-so any data on this would be helpfull.

    Thanks all

    I did a heater core swap but not on a Fbody. The dash has to come back some so you can clear the black box that holds it in. Its not too hard I will think as long as you know all th ebolts that need to be remove. I'm sure someone will chime in. On the bypass the sizes you need are 5/8" and 3/4".

    Service manual says you have to remove the glove box and it'll come out through the glove box opening.

    Ya, I know...sounds too good to be true. I've never done one on an F-body so I can't say for sure.
