: Oh god, heater core :( HELP

07-18-10, 02:43 AM
I'm sad. My husband was driving and I was w/ him while in the drive-thru and all of a sudden white smoke/steam started billowing out of the top vents of the dash. Then as he tried to pull it into a spot, coolant started squirting out from by our feat. It didn't touch me, but got on my husbands foot, and burned him.

From what I've read, it seems like that would be the heater core. I know it is mostly the labor that is going to hit the pocketbook hardcore. How hard is it to get to the heater core in a Cadi? The car is only a mile from our house now. We tried to start it, but it was only running for 10 seconds before it stalled again. What now?

(It's a 1994 Sedan DeVille). :yawn:
