1996 Chevrolet Blazer Owner Comments

problem #3

This cooling system failure has resulted in my having to replace the heater core and hoses as well as the radiator due to the amount and thickness of the corrosion/rust inside. The system will have to be flushed...Chevy is aware of this issue as referenced by their repair bulletins...the extend and cost of the damage is understated.... IM out of pocket $1400 to replace a radiator a heating core and other component due to not being notified sooner about the possibility of the problem occurring and thereby having the vehicle inspected for the probably issue!
