is the heater core leaking? have you checked the thermostat

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
The heater core is leaking but I'm not using the heat at all. I have not checked the thermostat
Expert:  john aka eaut replied 10 months ago.

I would start by replacing the thermostat...if the heater core is leaking it really needs to be replaced...start with the thermostat..and have it checked for head and intake leaks
