SOURCE: heater core replacement
It's one of the easiest cores to replace that I have encountered. Disconnect heater hoses at firewall. Probably doesn't matter about hose placement, but I always mark them just in case. To remove the fiber cover under dash, take a flat blade screwdriver and pry out the center pin of the expansion clips that hold it in place. There are four 5/16 head screws that hold the bottom/drain tray cover. Core will pull through the firewall and then down. You may have to silicone/glue or replace the foam seal strips on the new core. Before you install the core, check the distance between the inlet and outlet tubes to ensure they match the openings in the firewall. This saves time. It helps if you have someone on the outside to guide you when stabbing the tubes through the firewall. Replace bottom cover. You may have to hold one of the tubes when reinstalling the first hose to the core. Replace any lost coolant and check for leaks prior to reinstalling the fiber cover. If the cover seal is in good condition, any leak should drain through the firewall, otherwise it may leak inside cab. .

what temprature did you get on temprature gauge ? When you say the heater core , i think on the heater register som are under the dash . The water flow are controled with a tap , when you have the control on warm the heated water flow , when the control on cold , the tap is closed and now water flow. It can bee the wired to the tap som are loose . You must look up under the dash and se if you see the wire.
The are 2 hoses tho the heater , and they go inside from the engine in to the heater. Look for the hose , you find them inside the engine rom and they go inside the car.
If you start the car and run it warm , then you put the heater control on warm. Then you try to feal if the hose som go to the heater are warm, if only one are warm the fault are the tap. And then you must look under the dashboard and lokate the tap.
Hoope this tips could help you

allow the system to cool down
take radiator cap loose to release pressure
once pressure is released tighten cap
loosen clamps on the heater hoses in the engine compartment on the pass. side of firewall.
plug or cap off the heater core tubes to prevent spillage when you pull it into the truck
place a trash bag on floorboard in case spillage occurs
remove the five screws holding the heatre core access cover, three on top and two on bottom
carefully pull heater core back and down and remove it from the dash
install is reverse
Hope this helps

SOURCE: heater core
No, you don't have to pull the whole dash board but you have to pull a few panels....here is the steps on how to get to it and remove and replace it:
CAUTION NEVER open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Also, when draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.
