check and change the heator core before it expires on you
it is easy to change but labout intensive
you have to remove the center gearshift console, the console in front of that and then remove the driver side under dash
you should see the heater core, change it asap it could go anyminute and fill the cabin with coolant.
as for me i by passed it with coolant pipe
be sure to check when the car is cold and coolant is cold and also drain coolant to change
good luck
Oncew in awhile I have the faint smell of coolant in the cars cabin. What can this be a sympton of?
