Here’s the latest reader question, along with my reply!
Rob asks: Is there anything that can be done to get rid of fog on the inside surface of a windshield? I wipe it away using glass cleaner but it seems to never go away.
The heater core is a kind of mini radiator buried inside the dashboard – a terrible idea in terms of the inevitable need to replace it when it fails. Hot coolant flows through the core and hot air flows into the car’s cabin. But over time, the core develops cracks because of fatigue/wear and then it springs a leak. This leak will get worse and eventually, you’ll have an interior soaked with sticky, impossible to get rid of coolant. You may have to replace the carpet and do a massive cleaning job to get rid of it – after you have the core replaced, of course.
I’d attend to this job sooner rather than later, to limit the mess and the expense.
