On the way home from work, noticed a strong odor of antifreeze and windows fogged inside cab. No previous odor or fogging problems, just happened all of a sudden. Is this the heater core for sure, or could it be a hose going to core. Also, is this a big job on this vehicle. Have'nt done a core in 10+ years and not looking forward to it (LOL)

Very possibly could be a faulty / damaged heater hose running to the heater core. Inspect the hoses under the hood going through firewall. If OK, continue the inspection behind the dash within the cab. If hoses are OK then replacement of heater core will be necessary. Pretty long job, about 8 hours for experience shop to do this. Would you like replacement steps?
