heater core is ready to bail on you get ready to either take saturday and try it yourself or pay out some nice dollars to get it repaired professionally and with a warranty. If your AC works i recommend taking it to a dealer you will have too empty the freon from the system and put it back in when all threw

do u guys have a clue on how much it would cost for someone to do it? i seen a heater core for 40bux but i hear its a b**** to get the heater core out. I would do it but i dont have the right tools.

*btw i fired it up this morning and it didnt smoke, then like an hr later the windows started to fog and smelled that smell again.

you best luck to slow it down is to use some bars stop leak labor time is around 7 hours plus parts. In minnesota labor per hor is 70-80 bucks

I got prices anywhere from $1000 to $1300 to do. It's not fun to do, but if you can, it's worth saving the money for such a cheap part. I got it done in about 11 or 12hrs. Not my most enjoyable experience, but well worth saving $1300.
