2003 1.8 turbo with good cabin heat, but copious moisture on windows and sweet (yuck) smell in cabin. AC settings make no difference. No recirculate setting eventually helps. Have had to bring up coolant level several times - indicator light came on.
Pressure test by mechanic suggests small leak, perhaps heater core? No wetness on floor or obvious leak in engine compartment. Mechanic estimates ~$1800 for heater core replacement. We can see it's a many hour job. Thinking of trying a dose of Bar's aluminum cooling system stop leak. Yes, we've read the warnings about clogging, etc. Has anyone had success? Thanks!
