Took the LeBaron on another 100 mile cruise and Today was the day indeed 60 miles from the house the HEATER CORE GAVE OUT ! I thought if the heater was not on I would exempt from that . Great thanks to God , a chance of fate ,or dumb luck happened I took the wrong turn to a Walmart when the temp gauge started towards the red . I pulled into this rural of the road home I thought abandoned, and a nice elderly gentleman came out and started to admire the car and said his dad worked the Chrysler dealership as a mechanic and knew those cars well he had a 1966 Charger in the back . He immediately cooled down the engine by hosing down the radiator and quickly bypassed the heater ! I was back on the road in 5 minutes ! The heater core box I presume has a drainage hole in the firewall and all the radiator fluid was shooting out of this rubber hose, I onle had a small amount in the driver/passenger side below the dash probably because I ran the heater hoping to shoot all the excess coolant out the now disconnected hoses. I will bide my time and find the best qualified place to do the repairs I heard that the A/C has to be disconnected for the heater box so it will be more complicated that I thought or am equipped to handle. The engine and tranny are getting stronger every drive hit the 600 mile mark this day , leaks are minimal the tranny leak is somewhere from the top area and the axle to transmission connection. Will keep my fellow M body fanatic's updated.
