Question about Cars & Trucks
If the heater core is bad you will most likely have a coolant leak inside the car on the passenger floor area or you will get a sweet smell along with the windshield fogging up on defrost or whisps of smoke/steam from the vents

The only way a heater core can cause overheating is if it's leaking and the engine is low on antifreeze. To check it for leaks it would help to use a cooling system pressure tester.

SOURCE: bad heater core
If it does not have air conditioning you can pull the heater core out through the glove compartment. But it sounds like you do have air conditioning and the bad news this is about a 3 to 5 hour job. Remove all the screws by the windshield remove the screws are bolts below the speakers that attaches the dash to the door post if it has a console remove that. The dash and console do not actually have to be removed but pulled way out of the way. In the engine compartment disconnect the aie conditioning hoses to the heater box. You will need a special tool for this that removes the round springer or pushes it back or out of way, then pull the hose loose. There's also a bolt or two that needs to be removed in this area. Also removed the glove box, you will be able to see better there's also a bolt or two holding the heater box up. Be careful not to damage any wires or vacuum hoses. Good luck.

either the heater core needs a good flush or their is a tap/valve just inside the car up under the dash normally drivers side ,and the cable has come off the lever or it could have a electric solonoid to open the valve ?' depends on where it was built and for what market as some vehicles do have small variations
