Spectra Premium Heater Core is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 30.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not quite OEM 97 Ford F-250 LD. Job took a couple hours. The inlet and outlet tubes are not Exactly the same length and the bends are close. Be prepared to adapt the plastic piece under the dash where it goes into the engine compartment. The tubes are shorter so I used heater hose and clamps instead of the factory quick connects. Because the bends are close to OEM they will need to be carefully bent up slightly so the cover can be reinstalled.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Heater Core did not fit. I ordered one of these cores to replace a leaky one in my 2004 Dodge Stratus R/T coupe. The site assured me that was an exact fit for my car. I got the part and tried to install it in the heater box and none of the pipe bends lined up where they were supposed to be. The core itself was exactly the right size; the pipes just didn't go where they were supposed to. It looked like the pipes came out too far from the core before the first bend which threw everything else off. Anyway, nothing lined up so I returned the part and got another one, thinking the problem might have just been a QC problem at the factory. Same problem again! I do have to say that, although I am unimpressed by Spectra Premium's heater cores, I was very impressed with the parts guys at Pep Boys. They actually drove the part out to my house because my car was already torn apart and I could use it. Anyway, I eventually ordered one from a different vendor and manufacturer and it fit just fine. I hate giving Spectra this review because I have used almost exclusively Spectra radiators in my cars for years now. I love them. But this part was a complete bust.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits 1971 Mustang with A/C Part # 94574: The Pep Boys web site warns that this product may not fit a 1971 Mustang, but it does indeed fit vehicles with A/C. I had previously purchased one for a 1972 Mustang with A/C and it fit too. I have not had a problem with it after more than 2 years of use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not fit the car it was specified for This heater core was all metal and looked to be well constructed (except for one slightly bent inlet pipe), but it absolutely did not fit the vehicle it was supposed to fit. (1997 Kia Sportage) It was both taller and wider than the opening it had to fit into.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heater core worked as expected Product worked as expected. No leaks or stoppages. Heat working like new now. Installation was not easy (dash in my 2001 Taurus had to be raised on the passenger side to get to the old core), but that is a design issue, not the fault of this product. Overall, I am satisfied. It does what it is supposed to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design This heater core comes with pipes that swivel at the heater core connection. This enables the heater core to be replaced without having to entirely remove your heater and evaporater box. Therefore, you do not have to evacuate your A/C system. Vey good product at a great price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Excellent price but didn't match web image Removed my old heater core with no problems, the supply and return metal tubes slipped out of the side of the core and the core slid out. The replacement core came with the metal tubes installed and crimped in place. It was not possible to install the new heater core with the tubes installed. I had to uncrimp the supply/return tubes so I could install the heater core, then I sort of crimped them again with pliers. Not what I expected but it doesn't leak and it works just fine now. Took about 30 minutes longer than expected but it works and the price was excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The product was a direct fit The replacement part was a direct fit. I did not experience any problems related to this part. I rated the ease of installation poor because of the difficulty I encountered installing the product. However, the problems with installation were not related to the replacement part, but the vehicle design,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from exact fit product excellent shipping and pricing. only thing I would recommend would be an installation sheet stating that if you are replacing the original brass-copper heater core with the new aluminum core, be careful about the long screws originally holding core in place, because they will puncture the tank on the new core,as the original screws are too long. no big deal, just use a little common sense,and watch what you are doing. not a bad product for the money. ron m.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great piece, need long term experience to finalize my answer I just put it in, it looked very close to the original piece. Once I have some significant usage with it, I can say what I think of the piece.
