Default 1995 SE Heater Core

Hey guys, hopefully someone can help me with this, before my girlfriend kills me. I have a 1995 SE with the series II motor. It has 230,000 miles on it and the original heater core is starting to show it'* age. Whenever i turn the heater/defroster on, after a while it smells strongly of coolant/smoke/oil. Now i know it'* probably leading to worse problems but right now all i care about is getting the heat back to normal and not smelling like complete garbage. If anyone has any information on where to find, remove, install, diagnose, fix this heater core issue, i'll be more than greatful. Like i said before, my girlfriend is gettin on me about it and i enjoy my evenings, if you catch my drift. HELP PLEASE!!!!

heatercore is under the dash under all the panels and there are heater hoses running to it in the engine compartment that youll need to disconnect to remove the heater core its not that hard of a job maybe like 45 min then refill the raidiator
