Heater core bad on a 2008kk w/44k???

I have a 2008 kk and the dealer is telling me that my heater core is clogged and needs to be replaced!! They said there is something in the fluid, but they are not sure what it is or why its there. I bought the extended lifetime warranty, but of course was told the heater core is not covered.
Please help. . I need a solution. any thoughts will help

Brought the truck in because I had no heat on the driver side, but had heat on the passenger. I thought there would be no heat at all if the core was clogged. I feel I am about to get screwed at the dealer tomorrow.

Disconnect the battery for several minutes. Sounds like a control module glitch...

Is it controlled by a servo motor?

I can't remember, but it sticks and didn't seal correctly. causing no or limited heat to the drivers side. Less than $20 part if I recall.

Hope Digger doesn't mind. I copied this from LOST.

"OK there is not a tsb for this problem, however Chrysler did update the close out panel with a new version. The poor airflow to the drivers floor is caused by the poorly designed closeout panel. The panel is supposed to direct airflow to the floor, but there's two problems with it. One is the design doesn't direct the air properly and the material is too flimsy. This caused most of the air to be caught above the closeout panel. Not very effective.

Here's the part number for the new closeout panel for the poor airflow on the drivers side floor: 55197311AE "
