Finally did the heater core last weekend, its always had a slight leak but lately the "sweet smell" was getting bad.
then the first cold morning of the year windshield fogged
I have always has a small fog patch above cluster that seamed out of place,
it's becouse where the heater core is in these cars. its in the dead center of the dash.
Im a pretty handy guy and just did the one in my truck, only took 2 hrs.
so I gave it a go, started friday night,
step one removed dash 2-3 hrs.
removed the dash support ya the heater core is in that box dead center.
ok now what did I get myself into
took the box out the core had been leaking awhile, I think when the pressure was high it would seap out in to this case
dumped it out and then took it apart and cleaned it
we don't want to smell that anymore
then put it all back together
new heater hoses
This took all of my weekend starting friday night for 3 hrs and working all day sat, and then cleaning reassembly all day sunday.
all said the cores in these cars is a very big job, I can now go back to enjoying my ride.
