SOURCE: 1988 camero heater core replacement

Bossman there is no fast or simply way of fixin this problem!! However for a temperaury solution. You can take one heater hose off under the hood at the heater coreand undo the other one at the intake then connect the hoses coming out of the heater core to itself so nothing gets inside the heater core and do the same with the intake so that you dont have a mess!! To fix your problem you are going to have to remove your dash back and undo the heater box to get to the heater core!!

SOURCE: 1995 corvette heater core replacement cost estimate

225.00 bucks including parts labor, you might find a local mechanic will do it for 100.00 buck for labor and you buy the part 49.00 buck. lots of GM mechanic are laid off and economy is slow and you might want to advertise on craig list needing GM mechanic. my best secrets is drive back to the GM garage and ask any mechanic who does the side work and you will be surprise. keep in mind dont ask the shop manager, believed me every dealership has one or more does a side job and good price, no shop rate. hope that help some good luck.

How do i remove the heater core in a 1988 F250 pickup


I don't have that old of a shop manual but you usually have to open up the heater plenum case under the dash to acess the heater core. The disconnect fr the heater hoses is under the hood at the fire wall near the passenger side.

1996 version

Heater Core Removal
  1. Allow the engine to cool. Observe the safety precautions in Section 03-03 .
  1. Place a thick cloth over the radiator cap. Turn the cap slowly to its first stop to release system pressure. When the pressure has been released, tighten the radiator cap.
  1. Disconnect the heater water hoses (18472) from the heater core (18476). Plug the hoses.
  1. Remove the glove compartment.
  1. From inside the passenger compartment, remove the seven screws that attach the heater core cover (18B300) to the heater air plenum chamber (18471).
  1. Disconnect the vacuum source. Leave the A/C plenum vacuum harness (18C581) attached to the heater core cover. Remove the heater core cover.
  1. Remove the heater core from the heater air plenum chamber.
good luck
