Without knowing your car specifically I can suggest the generic way to do it. Locate the two heater hoses going into the firewall, probably on the passenger side. They're the ones that get hot and are about an inch + in diameter. Disconnect. Measure the inside diameter of the hose and purchase a short piece of galvanized or copper pipe (6 inches) at Home Depot. Connect both ends of the hoses to the pipe to form a loop. Secure the hoses so they don't land some place that would cause a problem.
I had this problem on an 85 Tbird. I had heard about a product called Bars Leak and tried it. It worked. No leaks and I kept my heater. You should be able to find it at any parts place at less than $10. Ground black pepper also has worked for me.

You can bypass the core or fix it that's up to you but I would change or remove the thermostat first. If it still overheats then start looking at the water pump and radiator. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Yes it can be done. look at your engine on it there will be two heater hoses coming from the engine to the heater, disconnect those two heater hoses at engine, with heater hose and two hose clamps, get the hose and clamp first at auto parts, install one end and the other end of same hose, where you disconnected the heater hoses from the engine, you have just by-pass the heater, hope this was very helpful.
