LEAKING HEATER CORE

2000 Dodge Dakota

Heater problem
2000 Dodge Dakota 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 76500 miles

MY HEATER IS STARTING TO LEAK VERY SLIGHT ODER IN CAB. I HAVE BEEN A MECHANIC FOR FORD
DEALER FOR YEARS BUT NOW I AM RETIRED. WHAT
DO YOU THINK ABOUT STOP LEAK PRODUCTS?
I ALWAYS FELT THEY WERE A TEMPORARY SOLUTION BUT THE REPAIR COST IS $725 WHICH
IS PROBABLY REASONABLE. WHATS YOUR OPINION ON THESE PRODUCTS.
THANKS FOR YOUR HELP

If it is a slight leak I have had good sucess with the aluminum flakes in a tube or bronze. The stuff only hardens when it comes out a crack and cools in air.
Hope this works because pulling dash is $$$$.
Thanks for donate
