SOURCE: heater core needs to be changed
when your heater core goes bad, generally it leaks inside the car and can leave a odor of antifreeze. It can effect colling of the engine...so I would change it.
It is behind the dash..but not a huge deal..take your time some saturday afternoon & youll have it

If the dash is removed you've saved about 9 10ths of the job endurance. Look around, what you believe to be, the perimeter of the heater box. I cannot, and no one else can, tell you exactly where the bolts and nuts that mount the heater box are. Therefore you must viually sixe the box and check outide in the engine compartment and inside under the dash for the mounting bolts.You'll want to start by removing the heater hoses. Then starting at the passenger side engine compartment look for a group of 10mm or 7/16ths nuts retaining the housing and remove them. Do the same inside. The housing is usually held together with screws or clips, it changes year to year. Keep a log or pix of the wires and cables and hoses(vacuum) that are connected to the housing for reassembly. You'll need to "roll" the box out from under the dash depending on how much of the dash has been removed. The core is easy to spot for is has two hoses sticking out, and, is encircled with clips or screws . Also make sure you remove the bracket around the two entry hoses if it has one. Thank you, Dana

It's been a while since I've done one of those. If my memory serves correct you have to remove the lower right bolt that holds the dash in place. Then you can pull the dash out enough to get the core out. If you can see it you have to be almost there. Do you have the glove compartment out? It seems to me there are some electrical components that sit on top of heater that have to be removed too. Hoses disconnected under the hood? I'm sorry I can't be of more help.
