If the overflow is right, then it'* may not be the core. Losing the core is like losing a hose. You'd notice a loss right away. The core is on the passenger side, so that'* where the moisture would be. Check the carpet under the glovebox area, if it'* wet, then you've got a problem. Check your hoses from the intake/water pump.

Unless there'* coolant from the heater core on the floorboard on the front passenger side, it sounds like normal condensation that was still in the AC system.
