Is it possible to bypass the heating core w/o doing any harm to the engine?

Asked by May 10, 2012 at 04:25 PM about the 2004 Audi A4 1.8T Quattro

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Is it possible to bypass the heating core w/o doing any harm to the engine. The car is at a shop, but they are unable to pressurize the system to determine where/what the leak is and the quote is between $1360 to enter thru the dash to $2680 under the hood( I think that is if they still cannot make determination). Sound about right? Unfortunately I am without any transportation, rental is getting really expensive.
