Heater core is located under the dash board, as Jenkins said you need to remove the dash board amd all other panel to access it, you will have to spend at least 2 hours to remove them if you're not familiar with it, becareful not to break plastic locks and tabs. Get your self a service manual for your car and it will be a great help.

If you don't know it's best to take to a shop. It involves dissembling the majority of the dash.

Suggestion: see if the blend door opens or closes completely to allow all air through the heater core. To see the blend door moving, remove the panel that says "Cut here for service" under the hood along the firewall. I have a 99 Bravada where the blend door keeps moving back and forth constantly. Changed the blend door actuator but still keeps moving. The air inside is only warm since the door keeps allowing bypassed air through.

We live in a cold climate. Our 1998 GMC Jimmy Heater will not provide cabin heat. The engine warms normally. We replaced the thermostat just to make sure the coolant was warm enough. The blower operates...

How do I flush the heater core without removing on 98 jimmy? I want to flush out the heater core but do not want to have to remove. Can someone give me step by step directions? Thanks


use the flush for the cooling system first. see if that helps. if not pull the hoses from the motor and use 40psi to blow through it should clear blockage

Got heater core need to put it in,want to now how to do it the right and fastest way


In order to replace a heater core in a 1998 gmc jimmy the coolant must be completely drained and the entire dash including radio, vents and panel covers must be removed. four screws hold the top portion(closest to the windsheild) in place. they can be found under the windshield defrost vent. after the entire dash is removed a safety harness under the steering column must be removed and the steering column must be dropped to the driver seat. The heater core housing(black plastic) is located right center of the dash and is a two part housing one piece on top of the other. the housing is attached to the fire wall and must detached before replacement can continue. after detaching the housing from the fire wall separate the housing by unscrewing the six screws that hold it together. the heater core is now exposed. disconnect the heater core from the two hoses and discard. installation is the un installation process in reverse.
Good luck, it is a very long and drawn out process that is not accomplished in just an hour or two . make sure you have most of the day or several afternoons to finish . i started this and it took me 2 afternoons to take apart and put back together

How do you get to the heater core in a 98 GMC Jimmy?


THE STEERING COLUMN (DO NOT ROTATE THE STEERING WHEEL AFTER THE INTERMEDIATE SHAFT IS REMOVE, YOU WILL BREAK THE SIR COIL), WINDSHIELD MOLDINGS, AND DASH HAVE TO BE REMOVED FIRST. UNDER THE HOOD THE BLOWER RESISTOR, R/H INNER FENDER WELL, HEATER HOSES TO THE HEATER CORE AND SEVERAL NUTS AND BOLTS HOLDING THE HEATER PLENUM TO THE FIRE WALL INCLUDING THE HIDDEN BOLT UNDER THE BLOWER RESISTOR IN THE EVAPORATOR CORE AREA. THEN FINALLY THE BOLTS ON THE INSIDE OF THE TRUCK HOLDING THE PLENUM TO THE FIREWALL.

NO DISRESPECT INTENDED BUT IF YOUR NOT A TALENTED MECHANIC I WOULD FIND ONE OR HIRE ONE THAT CAN DO THE JOB FOR YOU. THIS IS QUITE INVOLVED FOR A NOVICE.

1998 GMC Jimmy SLT warm air only from heating ducts


if you claim that your heater core is flushed properly then my bet is the temp regulator is bad.
