Antifreeze is part of your cooling system. Once it loses its hot temperature in the coolant reservoir, the antifreeze can rejoin the engine cooling system and even heat up the interior of your vehicle.
Similar to a radiator, a smaller sized variation, called the heater core, conducts heat from the coolant. This happens with help from a fan, which redirects the heat into the vehicle’s cabin. This is how your heater works.
When removed of its heat, the coolant recedes into the water pump to rejoin the engine cooling system’s circuit. If something goes wrong with the heater core, you should call 12th Street Auto Care Center. Our local Sioux Falls, SD auto repair shop employs ASE-certified mechanics who will gladly offer a heater core repair at an affordable price.
