The cold weather has shown just how poor the heater in the old Rover has
become. It was very good when new.
Coolant temp is normal.
It is a major job to replace it, so any tips for a decent chemical
Not keen on using one which simply goes in the coolant, but it is quite
easy to disconnect the hoses to the heater and use some form of chemical
just in it. It is copper, with IIRC steel pipes feeding it.
I did try reverse flushing it without success.
Was wondering about a couple of plastic bottles which could be fitted to
the hoses - one of them open at the top. So you could sort of slosh the
chemical back and fore in the matrix? Can such a thing be bought - to fit
the usual 1/2" hose?
Or any tips?
