Tonight my heater smells like antifreeze and now it blows out a white mist. The mist smells and leaves a film on the windows that will not come off easily. It will not defrost the window so now I can't see anything. This is unsafe to drive and our van is broken right now so it can not be driven. I need help please!!!!!!!!!!If you think you can do a thing or think you can't do a thing, you're right.--Henry Ford

it's a 99. after Googling for hours last night and talking to a few people today, it does sound like the heater core crapped itself. Where is it located? Under the dash?

Is $350-$450 a good price on having the core changed out by my local machanic?

I watched that already. I'm just going to have it done. Going to bypass the core so I can run the truck without it leaking.

I ddin't watch it until this morning at work. It appears to labor intensive for me to attempt. I hate spending that kind of money on labor since the part is only $61. I would rather it be done right then me screw something up in the process.

with the dash to be removed to do this I would say 400.oo is a good price. bypass the heater core by connecting the 2 hoses together. they have fittings at the auto part stores for this.
what type coolant do you use ? dexcool gm approved or compatibles coolant ?

Sounds like you need to make friends with a good mechanic that always helps out on the price lol.

If you are looking at the engine, the coolant line on the left going into the firewall can be disconnected and re-connected back into the block by disconnecting the line on the right from the block, correct?
