Hi Everyone,

Has anyone noticed that the engine heat seaps through
from behind the CD player and all other holes from the center console and dash board.

Is this a normal issue for a car with this size of an engine?
Does anyone care?

Regards,
Bill

No, I don't care! :bigSmile: Actually, I have never noticed this. The CD Player probably heats up itself, I am guessing. Haven't noticed from the other holes. You don't mean the vents, do you?

I never heard of heat coming from behind the cd player, but the middle console where the shifter is does warm up since the transmission is right under there.

Heat is from the heater core lines

I checked out the heat source behind the passenger side dash/glovebox area.

The heater core line is where the heat is coming from.

The line is not insulated in certain areas.
