New heat core?
I'm new to the forums, and don't know a whole lot about cars, but I'm looking for some advice.
I have a Suzuki Swift from 2012, it's gone 63.000 km and recently I noticed that there's no heat in the drivers side of the car.
I took it to the official suzuki car dealership and had them take a look at it.
They're telling me that the heat core is clogged with chalk and that I need to replace it at a price of $1230...
(They say they've tried flushing the system with no luck)
The car is "only" four years old, and has gone to all the required check ups.
I have never poured any kind of liquid into it - besides refilled the windshield washer fluid...
So how is it that this chalk came into the system is my question? Could it be caused by something the shop did? As they're the only ones who have ever touched the car..
Or is it really normal for something like this to happen? and will it then happen again after changing the heat core?
I'm sorry if it sounds really stupid, but I'm at a bit of a loss.
Thanks in advance to anyone that has any kind of input.
