A heater core is a radiator-like device used in the heating cabin of your vehicle. Hot coolant from the vehicle’s engine is passed through a tube of the core, a heat exchanger between coolant and cabin air. Fins attached to the core tubes increase surface for heat transfer to air that is forced past them which heats the passenger compartment.

The internal combustion engine in most cars and trucks is cooled by a water and antifreeze mixture that circulates through the engine and radiator by the water pump. This enables the radiator to give off heat to the car. Some of that water can be diverted through the heater core to give some engine heat to the cabin, or adjust the temperature of the conditioned air. The heater core is a small radiator, located under the dashboard. It consists of conductive aluminium or brass tubing with cooling fins.

Clogging of the piping can occur if the coolant system is not flushed or changed regularly. If clogging occurs the heater core will not work properly. If the coolant cannot flow correctly the heating capacity will be minimized and you won’t get proper air flowing through your vehicle.
