Where is the heater core located on 99 Ford escort ZX2?

Typically you will find the heater core sits inside the dash just inside the fire wall of the engine compartment, from the engine bay you can follow the water lines from the cooling system and water pump that go back to the fire wall and through to the heater core, find those to hoses together and the heater core is on the other side under the dash, usually under passenger side under dash behind the heater box, they are usually labor intensive to pull, and some require pulling the dash partly off etc.

Hearing water noises behind dash in 2009 Chevy cobalt

your heater core is behind the dash on the passenger side. The antifreeze travels through it as its cycle through the engine. Thats what gives you hot air when you turn your heater on. If you find that there is water dripping or pooling in the floor board of the passenger side then your heater core needs to be replaced and its not an easy task.

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.

Water leaking into the car on the passenger side

That would be a bad heater core. You will see water leaking from the passengers side floor board. This is a complicated job to do as a do it yourself being the heater core is located behind the dash.

Where is the heater core on a pontiac aztek and how do i get to it myself

It is located on the passenger side behind the dash. They are very difficult to get to and change. If it is not leaking in the floorboard of the passenger side, then it is probably not the heater core. I am guessing that the heater is not working. If this is the case. Then check the heater control valve.

Where is the heater core located?

The heater core is located on the passenger side of you Jeep. My 1995's is under the dash behind the plastic panel for the vents. Yours will be right around there also. If you open the hood and look where the blower fan for the heater is, passenger side firewall, just behind there. Hope this helps

A heater core is located behind the dash on the passenger side. If you look under the hood you will see 2 heater hoses going to the fire wall again, on the passenger side, your heater core is located behind the hoses. You will need to take the dash loose or off to get to the air box the heater core rides in.
