This morning I replaced the heater core in THAT. My daughter had smelled coolant with the heater on and when I checked the coolant level it was a little bit low. The whole job took about 1-1/2 hours at a leisurely pace - nothing difficult or 'fiddly', just some stuff to unbolt and get out of the way.

There wasn't a puddle of coolant under it, but it was clearly leaking from the top.

I used the DIY that Meir posted a few years ago. Great detailed easy to follow instructions. I recommend that everyone download and save the .PDF files that he has linked here in case you ever need them. Post (5) in this thread:

While I was in there, I noticed that a previous owner had done Meir's heater flap foam repair.
