When my car is running, whether I use cold or hot air, I smell antifreeze. The engine temp has not gone over the normal range yet. I think it's the heater core. Is this accurate? Or could it be as simple as a leaking radiator hose that attaches to the heater core?

It may be heater core especially if you see moisture on windshield. Have it pressure checked.

How much does it cost to have it pressure checked? Also if it is a heater core, what's the usual cost to replace? Ballpark estimate is good.
