Thanks for all your help thus far. After looking under the hood I can see that fluid is leaking from my heater hose connection straight down onto a pipe which is then steaming. I'm assuming that that might be the hot exhaust or if it isn't, then it's just a hot pipe that is still burning the fluid on contact and causing the smoke. GM says that my heater hose is good but the o-rings are bad. They're saying $300 to replace it, a local mechanic that I've gone to before says that he'll replace the hose for around $80. My question is, since I can see the heater hose connection, and I see that that is where the leak is, can I do it myself? Should I get the local shop to simply replace the hose? And what in the world is GM talking about?
