CHEVY HEATER PROBLEMS

1998 Chevrolet Blazer

Heater problem
1998 Chevy Blazer 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 160000 miles

my 1998 s10 blazer is having a heater problem it blows out heat but not sufficiently enought the blower motor is pushing out the air its just not heating up as it should. Theres a slight antifreeze smell I was just wandering if it a heater core problem and I have to replace it or try to get it flushed if it could be clogged. Any answers would be great I need my heater considering its -11 out now!

If there is no coolant leakage anywhere (around heater hoses under hood or in cab on passenger side floor) then most likely the heater core needs flushed. If there is leakage then it will need replaced, or perhaps just a hose to the core needs replaced
