I never really checked mine. I just knew that it had to be the heater core because the car would smell like coolant on the inside when the a/c was on!
I just took it to my friendly shop and had them replace it (too much work for me as the dash has to be removed to get access to it). $400 and a half day later it was done, and smell has never returned.
My shop told me it'* common for them to go out on H-Bodies. I don't know, though...everyone has their theories on what'* common to go wrong with these cars, so I take that with a grain of salt. There haven't been many heater core replacements here other than with my car, that I know of (and have an L36).
