The heater core is inside the heater unit that is located under the dash. You remove the unit and the heater core is inside it. The job is alot of work, about 5.0 hours for a professional that has experience doing them. If you are going to try to do it yourself get a repair manual for your car, it will have pictures and step by step instructions for replacement.

89 merc tracer blows cold air brrrrrrr

I would recommend flushing the heater core with water thru the coolant line, then blowing compressed air thru it also. And when you refill the coolant, make sure there is no air in the system.I would also recommend replacing the thermostat if you have the time and the money and the knowledge to do so

Check your heater lines that come from the engine block and go behind the engine into the firewall. Check the sides of your engine for seepage anywhere.
