I have a 1994 Chrysler LeBaron convertible, and I suspect the heater core has a leak of some kind. I can smell that engine coolant smell in the passenger compartment. I first noticed it late spring, but I have the top down most of the time over the summer, so I was OK.
Well, it’s not summer any more so maybe I should have it fixed.
First question, is it probably a leak in the heater core? What else might it be?
Second, if the heater core does need to be replaced, what’s it going to run. Looking around, the part is about $35, but I found this question and response:
I’ve found similar expensive-sounding descriptions for other years of LeBarons, so I’m assuming that’s an accurate description of the work required. Can anyone give me a ball-park answer for what it would cost? $500? $1500? I’m in Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti, Michigan, if it matters.
