Q: After having my blower motor change is there a possibility that my mechanic may have somehow damaged my heater core

asked by on

After having my blower motor change is there a possibility that my mechanic may have somehow damaged my heater core, it was less than five days after, that I discovered that I was smelling something it wasn't a sweet smell it didn't smell like antifreeze however just yesterday that I had a engine coolant temperature light on and I went to the nearest AutoZone and I was told that I needed coolant, it was empty, could they have messed with the heater core and didn't know it, or somehow damaged it when he replaced the blower motor? There is a drip of cool it now that is full when the car is turned off could there be a hose,or the heater core?

My car has 106000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. Typically the heater core or any coolant lines are not removed when replacing the blower motor, so at first glance I would assume that your cooling system issues are not related to the repair. I would recommend having a professional mobile mechanic come to your location and complete a car is overheating inspection, so they can isolate what is causing this problem and make the right repairs.
