ok so ive noticed that every once in a while a little smoke will show up into my cab, i thought it was from a oil leek getting onto the pipes but today after i went out i dropped down the dash and could see that it was coming more from the fire wall, so i stuck my hand back there to feel around and pulled out some fluid, after lookin at it, it looks like anti freeze, so wtf?

if u take your seats out and pull your intrument cluster and center console then start taking the bolts off that hold the frame to the body and the top of the dash to the body pull a few screws and wiggle the dash to find where it is still stuck at then pull asome more screws and wiggle again exc.... u can get to the heater core if u can peel the top of the dash back about a foot... it will be tight but it will save some time..

^+1. Time is money. I was short on the first one and ended up giving the Ford dealer $350.00 to do the last one in my '87 GT.
