Heater is not getting hot whats the problem

thermostat could be bad, heater core could be bad, blower motor could be bad. See if the blower motor turns on (passenger side under the dash). if it does then i would replace the thermostat. depending on how old the vehicle is you may want to have it flushed, something could be backed up. the last resort is the heater core because that is really involved and timely. it involves (in most cars) taking the entire dashboard out. for a feel, years ago it took me around 8 hrs just to get the the heater core in my chevy beretta. good luck

Trying to put on a heater core in dash of 95 ford van and having hard time disonnecting the heater hose

they can stick good. if ur going to scrap the old one then just break them off and take it out. then u can cut the hose back just enough to get them out. make sure u dont cut urself though. the broken aluminum will be very sharp.

How do I cange the heater core in my 1995 Chevy Berretta

Start by removing the panel under the dash on the passenger side. You will need a regular phillips screwdriver and a snubby 2-3" phillips later. Also get a 1/4" socket set. First thing, go under the car and remove the heater hoses from the firewall and twist out the drain spiggot. Then go back inside the car. The heater core sits under the radio. Under the core is a tray used to catch the leaking antifreeze and drain it out the firewall. You need to remove this tray. It has 6-8 screws holding it. Once the screws are out it is tricky removing it with the center console in, but it can be done-twist and bend. Then remove the screws holding the core in place and pull out the heater core. One note on the replacement-got mine from Oreilly's for $20-the two lines coming out of the heater core swivel to line up with the holes through the firewall. If you don't swivel them it will never seem to fit. Then reverse the above order, fill up the fluid, bleed the air off and away you go. Took me about 3 hours total in a parking lot. Ruined a shirt, but got it done. You will also cuss being upside down under the dash. It's a small place for a 240 lb. guy :) This was for a 1993 Beretta. Expect some bloody knuckles and a few mental breakdowns.

Good luck, and rated the help!!!
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION CAUTION When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.

For heater core removal on these vehicles, please refer to the procedure for vehicles with A/C.

I need to know where the hoses go from the heater core?

Have had the same problem with a Corsica.The reason they bypassed the heater core is that it had a hole in it.Reccomend filling with water prior to hooking up hoses.
