Heater core help...

my mechanic wants to charge $150+ to tie off the heater core cuz it's leaking onto the passenger side floor, is there anything I could do, to prevent it from leaking?, until I can afford to have it replaced?

$150 to tie it off? That's CRAZY! It will probably cost you avout $5 in parts and about 15 min of time.

reach in & disconnect the lines & go down to like home depot & get several diff sizes of chair leg protectors.

& as for changing it the core it self is like $30 from almost anywhere. get a bunch of buddies together, & buy beer & pizza & have them help you change it.

MAKE SURE THEY DRINK THE BEER AFTER CHANGINE THE CORE lol.

$150? Wow. Lol, you can do that yourself, easy. I did a heater core change for the 1st time last summer by myself mostly and it really is easier once you get the hoses off.
