Forward towards the front of the car or towards the interior? To rock the engine, I'd probably first remove the motor mount on the front center of the engine, that should help you get some more room to squeeze in one way or another.

Replace alternator on 2000 Pontiac Montana


The alternator does come out from the top. You need to loosen the two motor mount on top of the radiator support and rock the engine forward and secure it. Then removed the windshield wiper module cover, and you should have access to get it out.
I recommend for safety reasons, if you are not a experienced mechanic that you take the van somewhere for that service. When it comes to rocking engines and securing them, you are better off having a professional doing it for you.
Thank you for using fixya and be safe.

Where do i locate the heater core in a 1991 pontiac 6000le


The heater core is inside the heater case. It is the same plastic case that houses the blower motor. Usually they are replaced under the hood near the firewall or under the dash. I would look at the free online repair manuals provided by parts stores such as autozone.com . They should have the info you need for your particular model.
