You dont need special tools but the dash will have to be taken part the way out and the steering column too. its a real pain in the but and i would recommend buying a haynes manual at your local parts store for use as a reference cause like i said, its a real pain

2001 s-10 4.3 pickup. How to replace heater core.

changing the heater core in this vehicle is a long and annoying task. I just went through it. You will need to remove the entire dash board in order to access the heater core.Once you have removed the dashboard it isn't that tough. Try to cover the floorboards with plastic or something so coolant doesn't soak into your carpet. Remove the screws holding the heater core to the fire wall, disconnect the intake and return lines in the engine compartment and remove the heater core. Afetr you have removed the old core installing the new one should be easy. Dealerships will tell you that this is an 8 hr job and they will want $500 or more for labor but you can do it in 4 - 5 hrs. A new heatercore will cost around $50. Don't forget to have antifeeze on hand as you will lose some.

Replacment of heater core on 01 chevy S-10

Have replaced my heater core in my 2001 regular cab 4wd in december 2009. Had to pull the complete dash including the complete metal dash behind the dash that you see. Also had to remove the right passenger side inner fender well to acess the remaining two bolts that hold the heater core cover to the firewall. Its an insane job to do but the repair shop books call for 9 1/2 hrs to do the job. I'm not an expert but this is what it takes.

first determine if the heater core is located high or low by raising the hood checking against the firewall {by following the heater hoses to the fire wall} if it is high need to remove the dash. if it is low get on your back and start removing clips and screws no special tool needed.
