Question about Cars & Trucks
Nearly all coolant problems develop as acids eats away weak places. Heater cores are on e of them. They are costly to replace. We like a special kind of stop leak that works like blood. when it hits air ir coagulates - stopping and sealing the leak. A cheap fix that works. See this web page for details and online ordering.

SOURCE: Heater Core
check the interior and xterior especially on the firewall. there should be 10 to 12 screws also go ahead and take the two heater hoses off. sometime they will be adhesive around the interior of the core housing and it will take a little bit of persuasion. hope this helps:)

You can bypass the core or fix it that's up to you but I would change or remove the thermostat first. If it still overheats then start looking at the water pump and radiator. Hope this helps. Good luck.

You will also smell antifreeze/Prestone Sweet smell if the heater core is leaking and the windshield will steam up in cold winter not to mention the obvious coolant loss. i would think if it's water, unless you are using water in the cooling system, then it could be caused by the AC when it's on. This is normal for the hoses to have moisture on them and you will see it on the ground underneath the car when the AC is running.

If the copper/metal hose broke free from the heater core, the heater core will need to be removed and replaced. let me know what size engine and I can send you the removal procedures. Big job!!

SOURCE: im replacing the heater core
If it is necessary to remove the heater assembly, the cooling system must be drained before removing the heater core.
When a heater core leaks, a new heater core is installed or the old one repaired.
