My heater core is leaking in one off my heaters. I've taking the core out and am wondering if it can be repaired at a radiator shop and if it can should I or souls I get a new one?

Cheap enough, I would just replace it. An unnoticed failure while steaming could have an ugly result and that would suck.

Been there. I'd do what Plowin advised. Also check both hoses really well. I had one fail while underway a couple years ago. No fun........

I just looked at my receipt
$111.98

Either I was looking at the wrong price n the shelf or they charged me too much. I'll have to find out

Still cheap for the piece of mind it will give you. Unless you have ronnieraiders radiator experience that would still be my move.
