Has anyone ever bypassed the heater core in a 98-04 LH?|
My girlfriend's got a 2000 Chrysler Intpreid (2.7L, gray market canadian car), and the heat seems to be permanently on. Her mechanical engineer stepdad suggested bypassing the heater core. I've thought of two ways to do this: a u-shaped pipe to connect the hoses where they go through the firewall, behind the throttle body, or a simple valve to shut off water flow in an easier-to-access spot. To me, the valve idea seems simpler, but I have doubts as to whether just shutting off water flow would be detrimental to the water pump/cooling system.
