yep go to the auto parts and get a code reader. Question you say you get smoke/steam in the car from the heater core, have you checked your coolant?

yes, pull codes. you car has an on board diagnostics system that uses sensors to determine the conditions of your car. find someone that has a scanner or take it to an auto parts store. they will most likey scan it for you.

yea but it is nice to have your own code reader so the next time you have a problem all you have to do is check it.
