Yes, it is that time of year in the Kansas City area when fall quickly turns to winter and we need reliable heating in our vehicles. Here are the basics. The heater core is a center of activity in your car. The blower motor blows air through the heater core and to the passenger compartment inside of your automobile.
What happens is that hot coolant from the vehicle's engine is passed through a winding tube of the core, which is a heat exchanger between coolant and cabin air. Fins attached to the core tubes serve to increase the surface for heat transfer to air that is forced past them by a fan, thereby heating the passenger compartment.
It may seem complicated and certainly something that area garage mechanics may NOT want to tackle. That is why you begin every winter with a visit to Able Auto Service. The A-Team will check your vehicle’s heating system and make sure that it is ready for the rugged winter ahead. Just drive into 837 Osage Ave in Kansas City KS or call ahead at (913) 321-1030.
