Re: Will a bad heater core cause the engine to overheat? (NatedoggAZ)
If the heater core is leaking then yes it will cause the car to overheat because the cooling system will slowly lose all the coolant. You can bypass the heater core, but you won't have heat in the winter time. It's a temporary fix if you don't have the time or money to fix it.
