Car Heater Control Valve Replacement Service

What is the Heater Control Valve all about?

The heater control valve is one of the many components that are responsible for warming the interior compartment. This valve controls the flow of coolant from the engine to the heater core. Most heater control valves are operated in three basic ways. A manual cable, a thermostat type system, or even engine vacuum can control them.

Keep in mind:

  • The heater control valve cannot be repaired, only replaced.
  • When the valve is replaced, a mechanic should inspect the other heater hoses, so that they can be replaced if need be.
  • If the heater control valve is contaminated or corroded, the coolant in the system should be flushed when the new valve is installed.

How it's done:

  • Pressure check the cooling system.
  • Test operation of the valve.
  • Replace the control valve if bad/leaking.
  • Fill with coolant.
  • Test operation of the heater.

Our recommendation:

Since the air and heating system is a closed system, a mechanic won’t be checking your heater control valve during routine inspections and services. Instead, keep an eye on your air and heating system, and schedule an inspection if you notice that anything is malfunctioning. If your heater either doesn’t work or won’t adjust, then you possibly have a malfunctioning heater control valve, and you should schedule an inspection.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Heater Control Valve?

  • Coolant is leaking.
  • Heater does not work.

How important is this service?

If the heater control valve is leaking then you will end up with a loss of coolant, which will eventually cause the car to overheat. A properly working heater control valve ensures the proper functioning of the heating and AC system.

I appreciated how personable Jesse was. Would most definitely have him work on my car again. He takes the time to explain the work being done and why it's necessary.

Jaguar S-Type V8-4.2L - Car Heater Control Valve Replacement - Brentwood, California
Once Peter began working on this, he realized that the bid that "Your Mechanic" gave me was not sufficient for the time it was going to take. The company had underbid the job. However, he didn't come to me with that, and left it up to "Your Mechanic" to contact me, while he continued. The original estimate of 2.5 hours ended up being around 6 hours or so. All during that time, he remained professional, courteous, and steadfast as he worked. The end result was a completed job, and a fist bump from my new best mechanic.
