1999 GMC Sierra V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 125000 miles
My son (mistake #1) was driving my truck and the plastic fitting for the heater inlet on the driver's side broke off flush with the end of the heater hose. After trouble shooting it, it appears the plastic essentially dry rotted. Can you tell me what that plastic part is called and where I might find an IPB (Illustrated Parts Breakdown) so I can look up the part number and how it goes together so I can figure out how to fix it?
At the present, I plugged one of the T-fittings from a radiator flush kit between the two hoses thus jumpering the heater core out of the circuit. Will this cause a problem? (I.E, is the heater core used as a part of the coolant system on this vehicle?)
Thanks for your help!
