The job will go for about $900.00 for a shop and about $1100.00 from a dealer parts and labor. This is a big job and requires the AC to be evacuated and recharged.

Here are some guides to give you an idea on what is involved.

Here are some diagrams for your car.

Disconnect the battery before you begin.

Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.

I understand from the other questions and answers that replacing the heater corre is a real chore most of the time, however, one answer about a 2001 Chevy truck says that it is an easy fix.

Is it just as easy for a 1999 Chevy Silverado? I'm considering purchasing this vehicle, but don't have the $500-$700 estimated in the other answers. We are pretty handy with easy to intermediate repairs and have a good mechanic to quiz as needed.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Heater cores are sometimes hard depends on what has to be moved out of the way to get it out. Most time it is time consuming and with some of the close areas you have to work with, one wonders why they got started with it in the first place. If you take your time most anything can be done. With you having a mechanic to help with questions is great.
