That is strange for them to leak. Is there an 'O' ring that can be replaced or do you need to replace the whole heater core?

I'm not sure but it would have to be re-crimped if you replaced the o-rings and I don't have those kind of tools I think I may order the original Mopar part from Geno's it has a solid pipe soldered to the heater core no swivels.

Have a Great weekend!

That's odd... I've got a aluminum heater core just like than in my truck and no issues here.

I guess it was just luck of the draw that I have a defective part its just a time consuming job & the wife & kids take most of my time so it will be a while before I get around to replacing it. Thanks for ya'll's input good to know there are some out there that haven't had an issued with this heater core.

Merf, you got luck like mine. Most of the time if it weren't for bad luck I'd have no luck at all........... EXCEPT when it comes to my truck. So far (knock on wood) I have not had any real problems except for a couple of head gaskets. Now I probably jinxed myself...
