95 Fleetwood Cadillac no heat changed water pump and thermostat. The heater core is not bypassed and car stays defrosted help me see why no heat is blowing out. The fan works but no heat

Sounds like a air lock in interior heater core, remove one heater hose under hood and make sure you have flow through heater core. Some vehicles have a valve that controls coolant flow through heater, check on hose for that if no coolant comming out of inter heater hoses.

How do i change the heater core?

Some heater cores are quite complex in removing. They are sometimes buried behind the dash board. Often other parts of the dash will also have to come out (Glove compartment) to reach it. You have to locate and remove the heater box under the dash (usually on the passenger side) after disconnecting the heater hoses under the hood by the firewall. The heater box will have a wire harness and/or cables connected to it that will have to be disconnected before the box will drop out. Once the heater box is out...remove the cover and heater core and reinstall in the reverse order that it was removed.

How to replace heater core in 2002 chev s-10 bottom hose is warm top hose is cold

Well first, if your talking about the radiator hoses when you say the bottom hose is warm and the top is cold, that would suggest to me a stuck thermostat. If not, then the heater core is located inside the truck under the dash. You can follow the heater hoses under the hood to the firewall and that will tell you where, under the dash the core is located. It is kind of a big job, as all the under dash covers will need to come out as well as the glove box. The heater core is inside the heater box, a black plastic box that will also need to be removed. It is important to note that when you are reinstalling the heater box after you change the core, it must be completely sealed, either with RTV or two sided insulating tape.

Need to replace heater core in 76 Eldorado convertible

You dont have to remove the dash but it might make it a easier job if you did. The heater core is removed from under the R/S dash. after removing the lower dash covers, glove BOX, A/C programmer. Then from under the hood, disconnecting heater hoses, and removing heater case mounting bolts.Then finally jockying the heater box from under the dash without spilling coolant fronm the heater core is a trick. Hope this helps.

you have to take the under part of the dash loose to get to the heater core and there are two hoses under the hood that connect to the heater core. id take those loose first and then wok on the inside part of it, its going to be right under the center of the dash down low. its hard to get to but thats what you have to do to change it out.takes a couple of hours to do it .
