That does sound like a heater core issue. It's buried inside the dashboard on the passenger side - you'll likely have to remove the entire dashboard to access it. If you look under the hood, back at the firewall on the passenger side, you should see two hoses coming out of the firewall and into the back of the engine - these come out of the heater core.

It's a job that anyone with some basic knowledge and a decent set of hand tools can definitely do at home, but it's labor-intensive and will take quite awhile. Plan for a full day and maybe part of the next to do the job.

SOURCE: Engine heating up

Is the radiator or overfill jug loosing water over time? Even a small amount under the minimum can cause quicker heatups. Also, start the car and check your hoses. I've seen hoses collapse and cause problems similar to that.

The ambient temperature could also be a factor. When you're cooling the water and trying to keep it below 212; a breeze of 40 degree air is a lot better for the cooling then 90 degree air.

One other thing as well. Being as it is an older car, you may want to try blowing our the radiator. Using an air compressor with an air nozzle. Just blow air through the back (in the engine compartment) through the radiator and out the front. This will clean out the radiator from bugs, dirt, and debris.

Try those ideas and see how it turns out.

SOURCE: Air coming out of engine where you pour oil in

The piston rings are worn and combustion gas is blowing by the rings and going into the oil pan, up the timing chain cavity and out the oil cap. A certain amount is normal, a lot is engine wear. Your PCV valve may be plugged, you could try changing it as it is cheap, but you likely have a worn engine.

Oil poured from botton as well as housing unit.

housing unit? are you refering to the engine block? If oil comes out as fast as you pour it in, check your drain plug in the oilpan, holes in your oil pan. Did you run over something recently?

Usually engines hold their oil unless you've run over a big rock and knocked a hole in the oil pan.

drain plug has fallen out more than likely.

heater core is actually centered behind controls- plumbing connections are on passenger side-look in engine compartment for leak first- loose clamp or split hose- then go to core- can try BAR's Leak first if not a hose problem

Adding Transmission Fluid

Get a funnel and pour in the transmission fluid where the transmission oil dipstick is. The plastic container with the yellow cap is probably your radiator fluid (engine coolant)
