Heater core replacement
My mom owns an 07 torrent, fwd 3.4L. Last year our heater core went but the smell wasnt too bad and the heat still worked. this year its done for. car stinks, white film on window, yada yada.
I work as a service writer at a local shop and looked up the labour and it calls for 7.2, and from what my techs said, its based on a apprentice level of experience. I am by no means a master mechanic, but i have done a headgasket replacement and over haul on my 08 nox with a 3.4L and had little problems with that.
Should i tackle this myself? is it relatively easy to do but just a long process, is there any pointers? has anyone done this themselves? We really dont want to pay the $700 give or take in labour for a $100 part. She loves the car and it has been very good to us in our 8.5 year ownership.
