Volvo car, truck, or SUV owners have become used to a certain level of a reputation for safety when driving their 242 around town. Your Volvo dealership isn't the only place to find genuine or original equipment quality repair parts to fix your 242. Obviously, you didn't buy your 242 unless you knew that you wanted long-lasting quality and dependability both rolled up into one car, truck, or SUV. While it may not be difficult to locate replacement parts for Volvo vehicles, these days only the highest quality are required to maintain your car or truck.
Before cars and trucks were built with the ability to cool their interiors, they had the ability to heat them. The engine of your Volvo 242 constantly pumps and turns a mixture of water and ethylene glycol through the engine block in order to absorb the heat it generates, and sends this liquid to the heater core (a small radiator) through a heater supply hose when you want to warm your vehicle's cabin. If you've ever wondered why there are two hoses leading to the passenger side of your firewall, that's where the heater core is located. Essentially, your Volvo 242 heater core is a small radiator that creates a pocket of heat for your blower motor to funnel air past as it goes through to the interior.
