Shop Wants a Lot of Money to Fix My Heater Problem

Volume 1 Issue 2 - 6.2/6.5 Issues and Answers

I bought my 1996 half-ton 6.5 pickup used and do not know its history. I do know that I am freezing now that winter has set in – the heater is lousy and I cannot keep the windshield free of ice. The temperature gauge stays at about 160ºF most of the time and that looks hot enough to me, so I don’t understand what is happening here. A local shop told me that the radiator and heater core were plugged and they estimated $1,085 to fix these. Can you give me some help – something better than $1,085?
