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!!

Heater core


2.3l, 4 cyl.
If you need to replace the heater core it's really easy. Maybe 30 mins if you know what your doing. Remove the hoses (truck cold) from the heater core in the engine compartment (reclaim excess coolant that comes out). Remove screws from the passenger compartment fire wall area (inside), remove and reinstall heather core. Replace lost coolant. It's that simple.

Heater core replacement 88 s15


This is never an easy job and that is why the labor charges are high for this repair. I know of no place you can get detailed instructions on how to get to the core. You basically remove enough of the dash surround to gain access to the core. Just go slow, take photos or video if necessary to remember how everything fits back in place. If you will search YouTube with the term "heater core replacement 1988 S-15" you may get some help.

When a heater core leaks, a new heater core is installed or the old one repaired.

  • Remove the access panels(s) or the split heater/air conditioning case to gain acess to the heater core.
  • Remove the heater coolant hoses.
  • Remove the cable and/or vacuum control lines (if equipped).
  • Remove the heater core securing brackets and/or clamps.
  • Lift the core from the case. Do not use force. Take care not to damage the fins of the heater core when removing.
  • To reinstall the heater core, reverse the removal steps.
When the heater core leaks and must be repaired or replaced, it is a very difficult and time-consuming job primarily because of the core's location deep within the firewall of the car. For this reason always leak test a replacement heater core before installation.

Need to replace the heater core


The first thing you need to get is a Haynes repair manual on your vehicle. Replacing the heater core will require significant disassembly of the dash board area and having that will assist you in getting it down right the first time.
