Just thought I would give an update.
The problem did end up being the heater core like you mentioned.
The job took 7 hours with 90% of the labor coming from me. I probably could of done it in 6.5 but I made a few things much harder than needed to be. Lol the brace that holds the heater core pipes down took me 30 minutes cause I didnt think of pulling the fire wall back first before removing the screw. I sat there with a bit and a small wrench loosing that damn thing. . That and I had the hardest time with the hose clamps.

Note: When inside the engine bay watch your feet. I woke up with code 1494 the next morning. A plug had been disconnected slightly which caused the code.
