Re: i need to replace the heater core in a 97 mitsubishi...
Unfortunatly there is no easy way to do this. You have to remove the entire dash to get to it. After that it's pretty easy. But it is located close to the firewall behind the dash either on the passenger side or in the middle.

Check heater core location for leakage. If no heat is coming out when you have the temp set to hot, chances are you have a blocked heater core. If you smell antifreeze from heater fan, you may have a leak in the box that contains the heater core. Your windows may fog up too, if you keep the heater on for a bit, but this happens more often if the air coming out is warm, or hot. Hope this helps!
do the same with this one. This link is for the engine electrical.
It sounds as if your husband knows what he is doing. The information in these two manuals is extensive right down to the last bolt if there is other info that you need just let me know. I hope this helps
2002 diamante heater core sits in center of the dashboard just over the on board computer for the car. To access it you need to take out the console between the seats and the entire dashboard to get to it. The only thing wrong with the heater core is the leaking gaskets (about $10 in parts). Mitsubishi knows about the problem and when the dash is taken apart you will see a plastic sheet over the onboard computer to somewhat protect it from the leaking heater core gaskets. So the expense in the repair is in the labor to get it all apart and back together again. The dealers seem to replace entire heater core when they fix this problem. I did just the gaskets and that solved the problem. I have read others who did it themselves only replaced the gaskets and that solved it for them as well. Maybe the dealers think you will feel better replacing a larger part for so much labor.
