96 Buick Park Avenue, heater wont blow hot air. How can I tell if it might be the thermostat or the heater core?

Start the car and let it warm up. After it is warmed up open the hood. Look for your top radiator hose, and see if you can squeeze the hose, if the hose is hard to squeeze, the thermastat is stuck shut. If your heater core was out, it would be leaking badly.

Were is heater core on a 1989 buick park avenue heat will blow but will not get very hot.

The heater core on your Park Avenue is under the dash on the passenger side. There are some covers that you will need to remove to access the heater core. I would invest in a service manual for the car these things can be hectic to get out. you can pickup A manual at your local parts store for around 20$ well worth the $

ARE YOU SURE THIS IS THE PROBLEM. Is the heater core leaking if so you would smell antifreeze inside your car the windows would fog on the inside and you would probably have a puddle of antifreeze on the passenger floor board. If its not leaking have the system flushed out
it could be clogged up
My first guess is that the thermostat is sticking open not allowing the coolant to get warm enough to produce much heat id have this checked first cheaper repair and easier to do, also check the antifreeze level, low level could cause this to. hope this helps

If you smell antifreeze in the vehicle it is most likely your heater core that is leaking.Look under the dash on the passenger side to see if there is any antifreeze on the botom of the heater box or under the carpet.

92 buick park avenue won't blow hot air - temp control seems to be working

Make sure there are no leaks and that the system is full to capacity. After the vehicle has warmed up check radiator hoses for temperature differecial also check heater core hoses. A significant difference in temperature may indicate a plugged heater core or thermostat failure
