Pontiac Firebird 1969, Heater Core by Replace®. The heater core is located in a case under the dash, and is connected into the engine cooling system. It is usually made of copper or aluminum and consists of tubes to carry the coolant and fins to transfer heat to the passenger cabin. As the coolant circulates through the core, the blower motor blows air through the core, warming the interior. If testing proves that your heater core is leaking or clogged, don't pay the high dealer price for a replacement, when you can get an OE quality heater core for much less from Replace.

The most common cause for heater core replacement is leakage. Wet carpet and a slimy film on the windows accompanied by the somewhat sweet smell of anti-freeze are sure indicators of a leaking heater core. If in doubt the cooling system should be pressure tested. The heater core can also become plugged, in which case heat output will be less than satisfactory.

When selecting the Replace® component that is right for your model from the Product Options list, you may be offered a choice of Good, Better or Best. Good may be a part manufactured by a different company than the one that made the original part, but because it's based on the same design, it will look and function identically to the OE part. Better may be a part made by a brand name manufacturer and Best may be a part made by the same manufacturer that made the original part. Some parts labeled Best bear the seal of the Certified Automotive Parts Association (CAPA), an independent, non-profit organization that oversees a testing program to guarantee the quality of automotive parts. CAPA certified replacement parts meet the industry's toughest standards. But regardless of how the part is labeled, have confidence that whichever one you choose, it will appear and function to your satisfaction.
