I tried and tried to either gorge up or forge up my windows,
but no luck. What is your secret to window-gorging?
Do you forge first, then gorge it? Or do you use an aftermarket
gorge that contains 32% more forge in every drop?

If you would please consider telling us what your secret is,
many of us would be greatly appreciative. Although we might
not be familiar with the Acura "Lengend" model, I imagine
it operates in a similar fashion to a Legend.

Also, you might want to try proof-reading your post prior
to launch. Har.

I'm afraid that is very likely to be the heater core. If you smell the sweet
aroma of antifreeze in the car, that confirms the diagnosis. (Or get your
wife to sniff, if you have as useless a "guy" nose as mine.) In addition,
the coolant level will be dropping if it is the heater core. If in doubt,
carefully fill the coolant to the "cold" line when the engine is cold and
recheck it the next day.

I've tried sealants, but they never work. They also make a mess, especially
the type with cellulose in it. When I opened up the heater core (after
removing the dash in my Volvo!) I found the inside coated with what looked
like paper shreds, like when a Kleenex goes through the washing mashine.
Yuck!

The usual problem is that the solder seals around the caps - the pros
usually call those "tanks" - crack. I made the mistake once of taking the
core to a nearby shop who insisted it would be fine if they just resoldered
the tank, rather than replacing the core for $25 more. Six months later I
was removing the dash again.... Lesson learned - either get an exchange
rebuilt heater core or get yours recored.

You might want to press the A/C (air conditioner) button in, it makes the
fog/frost dissipate from the interior windows when the heater is on.
American cars do this automatically but Acura / Honda etc have to have the
A/C button depressed!

Also as someone else mentioned, the heater core may need replacing if you
smell that sweet smell of antifreeze in the mornings.
