[DML] Re: Greasy, cloudy windows

Sounds like "the Fog" (leaking heater core). People call it Fog, but
it's really more of a slime. Is caused by ethyl glycol against cold
glass, which usually makes it a winter time phenomenon (I've never
encountered it in the summer). Perhaps A/C is chilling the glass enough.

If it is a leaking heater core, for now you can simply unplug the two
heater core hoses at the firewall and tie them together with a 5/8"
barb or barrel connector (or a short piece of pipe). That will keep
antifreeze out of the passenger compartment. Will only lose the
ability to regulate A/C temp (need to repair before this winter
however if you want any heat).  

If your heater core does indeed need to come out, the bad news is DMC
followed traditional production line techniques: started with a heater
core and built the remainder of the vehicle around it. I jest of
course, but that is the way it seems when you have to disassemble so
much of the dash to get to it.
