    Blow out the heater core with compressed air, if you cant do it have it done!

    That heater core is so easy to change, it would probably be just as quick to change it out. Core aprox $40.00 less then a 1/2 hour to change. IMO

    It is fairly simple just a cover under dash, you and i may be able to do it in say 11/2 hrs 'total' now a diy'er maybe 3 hrs. Still not a bad job but i have good luck just blowing them out, at the shop with the right equipment that is. Hell if that dont work then replace it!
    Yeah, i hear ya on the temp, that's a little too warm for me! Cant stand 'HOT' weather!
