Sounds like either your heater core has sprung a leak or one of the hose clamps have come loose on the heater core. I'd bring it to the shop. That's not going to be a fun thing to fix........

Plus 3 cats in one week is ridiculous. Either you have someone who likes your money or someone who doesn't know how to diagnose what is wrong with your car. Is it still misfiring?

yea A1 mufler got me for two converters,they were bad ,but im wondering who was the da who decided it needed 3,lol we cut off ,stait pipe , runs great, plus 25.6mpg now interstate driving,,,,now this problem pops up... i can only hope its loose hoose, but it still sounds like costly repair,probaly dash removal..ummm or guess hoses are hiden under windshield shroud,,so back to u estamate whae it might cost for loose hoose,,i bet it is,, because its very slow leak and u can get a whif of antifreeze sometime

If that is all the issue is, a new hose is like $15 and the labor to replace plus coolant. Under $100.
