Sounds like you better get it towed to the shop for a new heater core ASAP. Otherwise it might rupture and spew scalding coolant all over your lower legs and that will not make for a fun evening. Technically, turning the heater to the coolest setting should keep most coolant from circualting through the core, but do you want to risk it? Please for your own safety do not chance it. Spend the cash and have it done.

if you want a temporary fix until you get a chance to replace the heater core get your self
a union connector and install it in-line with the out-let and inlet hose I"m talking about the
two hoses that goes through the fire wall connect
the 2 hoses together so it will comletely bi-pass the heater core and still have coolant cool your engine.
