The new cores are really thin and rather cheap,it's best to just replace it.
Messing around with flush and the like might get it to unclog a little but not like a new one.

My heater core is clogged, is there any way to unclog it instead of replacement?

No easy way. You can try backflushing the heater. Might try disconnecting both heater hoses and useing a garden hose to attempt to flush water backward throught the core.

Heater core 1987 lichon signature 5.o location

heater core is located on the front passenger side next to your ac evaporator assembly, your heater unit uses engine coolant water as a heater , the reason why you smell anti freeze because your core has a leak.
you can disassemble the unit if you have the right tool and by removing the front glove box and console panel to expose and give way to check that unit, it normally fastened by screws and a few bolts and nuts.

Changed thermostat still blowing cold air

Get it warmed up, and with the heat on and running, feel the coolant lines that go from the engine compartment through the fire wall to the heater core. They should both be hot. If not you may have a plugged up heater core. If you can remove both hoses and flush water through it, sometimes this will unclog the core.

No heat

The most likely problem is a stuck heater switch. follow the heater hoses from the firewall to the engine block, somewhere along those lines will be a switch that allows the warm coolant to pass through the heater core. place your hand on both sides of the switch with the car warmed up, if the side towards the block is warm and the side towards the heater core cool then replace the switch.
