When I use to get one stopped up I would take it to a car wash take the hoses off hook one to the wand on the pressure washer hose clamp it and bump the trigger untill all the rust and gunk came out I Fixed many of them like that and I looked at it like this if I was going to have to change the heater core any way it was worth a shot I am guessing I have probally fixed 6 or 7 like this through my life time for me and freinds and I have never busted one and fixed all of them.

Heater core

The mechanic was right it took me about 45 minutes to take the old one out and put the new one in. I think I paid $27 for the part.
