Question about 1998 Toyota Tacoma
I have no heat, worked great last year now its ice cold, do i need to replace the heater core?
You may have a fail safe thermostat that is stuck open I would check that its cheaper and easier than the heater core

You need to tighten your fan belt,loosen the top and bottom bolts on the alterntor and pry it side ways until it is tight.If it still squeels then do it again to make it tighter.

There should be a heater control valve attached to the heater hose line, it can stick shut, and no circulation to heater core= no heat. You eliminated the core and t-stat as the problem, check autozone site, it is a $45 part, hope you have heat!!!

Sounds like you have air trapped in the heater core when you flushed the heater core. loosen the upper most heater core hose and run the engine untill coolant seeps out. Wait until the coolant has reached running temperature.

The heater core is a small heat exchanger located inside the
truck, similar to the radiator at the front of the truck. Coolant is
circulated from the engine through the heater core and back to the
engine. The heater fan blows fresh, outside air through the heater core;
the air is heated and sent on to the interior of the truck. For Toyota Pick-ups/Land Cruiser/4Runner 1989-1996 check this reference repair guide...

Have alot of towels handy for the leakage of coolant that may spill into your interior.
Hope this help (remember comment and rated this).
