MACS member Gordon Marks of Marks Air in Tampa, Florida shares a snap shop from one of his truck heater jobs.
This nasty part is from a 1994 Roadmaster wagon with 154,000 miles. Gordon reports he by-passed the heater core, had it flushed out to get rid of the sludge, then installed a new heater core. Where did the sludge come from? Hard to say, but it certainly looks like a 20-year-old cooling system that’s never been serviced.
