Air works fine on 97 Lincoln continental but heat does not work

Probably needs a heater core replacement. Check and make sure your coolant level is good. There are two hoses that enter the passenger side firewall. With the engine at operating temperature feel both hoses. If both are about the same temo the core is fine. If one is hot and the other is cool then heater core is clogged and will need to be flushed or replaced. Replacement is very expensive on most vehicles. The part is usually cheap...around $50...the labor is high. The entire dash board of the car has to be removed to replace the heater core. Most vehicles take around 10 hours of labor time to do.

Change out heater core

Heater cores are quite easy to change,what's hard is taking down the entire dash assembly,start by taking off the meters,lonce this is done keep working piece by piece of the entire dash until you get to the core, this would be behind the glove box you need lots of room and many long extentions and definately need screw-gun careful not to lose any screws good luck

Leaking heater core 2000 ford explorer hoe to replace

The heater core can only be removed after the dash board is removed from the vehicle. To remove the dash board the steering column needs to be dropped down or better yet also removed from the car. In addition to these two items being removed, the evaporator box in the engine compartment may need to be removed to provide access to the plenum box mounting nuts. Once the plenum is exposed, the box needs to be pulled back toward the rear of the vehicle and the core is removed through the top. It may seem like a tremendous undertaking, but it's the proper way to do it. The only short cut I can recommend, is instead of draining your radiator, pull one of the hoses off the core stubs and turn it back to the other stub while you're performing the repair. This will save you some time by not having to refill the entire system and bleed the air from the engine block. The Ford repair manual states 7.1 hours for the complete job. A good mechanic who stays at the repair can do the entire jobs in about 6 hours. TAKE YOUR TIME AND DON'T FORCE ANY COMPONENTS OR ATTEMPT TO BEND OR PRY THEM OUT OF YOUR WAY. I strongly suggest you buy a factory repair manual, you can get them on DVD from eBay for cheap. Here is a link to one such auction.

Not sure how to get to Heater Core in 01 Chevy Blazer

Their is nothing either quick or easy to changeing a heater core. Most have to have all of the duct work from the AC and heater under the dash removed. The two hoses for the outside of the cowling to the core have to be removed. Some even have to have the floor board matts removed to have enough clearance  to take out the heater core. A really rough job.

What is the easiest way to replace the heater core in a 2002 mitsubishi diamante

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.
