To give you an idea, they placed the heater core on a stand and built the car around it. Really, it's a doable job, very time consuming, so if you take your time and don't get frustrated it'll come out alright. When you're in there though, change the heater blower and rebuild the heater valves too. If you don't you'll probably be in there again later.

You may just have a loose clamp or a defective hose.

I've no idea how much a new heater core costs, but I'd also look into taking it to a radiator shop for a rebuild. It might be cheaper...

Busted hose clamp I bet, those cores seldom leak. I added water to top up my radiator and then it turned cold overnite. I was driving and noticed the temperature go way up!
Be careful to top up the radiator with anti-freeze and water if you don't stop the leak.
