There is a free way to find out where it is which is what you'll have to do first, go to any parts place which should have a diagram or they can just tell you over the phone. i will tell you this, hope that it's on the passenger side because if it's on the driver side you will need to pull the dash to get to it. If it's on the passenger side like the blower motor you can just drop the glove box door down to get to it. It looks like a little box woth two or three small hoses or pipes going to it which are failrly easy to disconnect. Hope this helped, good luck!

The heater core is located under the dash, in the center. The container holding the core looks like a black plastic box. Remove the ash tray for easier access. You may have to also remove some other covers under the dash. You must first drain the radiator then you have to disconnect the hoses. There are two hoses connected to nipples of the heater core that go thru the center of the firewall. Remove the screws that hold on the cover to the heater core. Then you should be able to get the old one out. There might be a couple of other minor steps but I'm sure you can figure them out. For re-installation just go in reverse order to put it all back together.

You will need a piece of pipe about 2" to 3"long that will fit inside the diameter of the two heater hoses at the firewall and two hose clamps. (1)disconnect the two hoses at the firewall; (2)slip a clamp on each hose; (3)slip the piece of pipe into both hose ends to connect the two hoses together; (4)install and tighten clamps on each end of hoses over pipe. (You might want to put a little grease on the pipe for easier removal when you are ready to install new core.) Start engine and check for leaks at the connections.

You locate the heater core by following the heater hoses in the engine compartment. These hoses need to be disconnected. Then, working inside the passenger compartment, take off all of the control panel. You'll see screws underneath if you lie on your back. The only trick is to pop out the vent louvers -- just pop them out with a screw driver. There are screws behind them. Take out the glove box. Take off the heater outlet duct and the heater core cover. Pull the heater core straight back to avoid breaking the drain tube. Remove some clamps and that's it.

it could be the electronic switch down under the dash that is faulty, not allowing the flap to close off and cycle the water through the heater core..
