What two hoses?
1.Some sort of cooling system hose? Such as the two that go to the heater core? See how much slack you have in the hose, and cut the hose off, right after the outlet tube it attaches to. If there is enough slack you can remount the hose. Use finesse to remove the stuck piece of hose.

If the example IS the heater core, the heater core is made of brass, or aluminum, (<-Not likely), and you can easily damage it's hose outlet tubes. Careful cut along the side, and try to Not go deep enough, to scratch the outlet tube. Peel back one edge with your fingers, and grab it with a pair of pliers. Try to twist the hose. Again, use finesse. Do not twist so tight that you crimp the outlet tube! Work around the hose on the tube. Eventually you will get it broke loose, where you can twist it off of there.

2.Radiator hose? Same thing applies here as listed above. I HAVE used a flat tip screwdriver to get under the edge of the hose, then worked my way around the hose edge. This helps break it loose from the water pump, or radiator, to where you can twist the hose, and twist it off. Using a flat tip screwdriver in conjunction with a brass or aluminum radiator, is ->NOT SMART!
I used the finesse of a surgeon operating on a heart, took my time, and sweated bullets!

How to I get the rear heater core out on a 1998 chevy suburban?

If I remember correctly it is located on the right rear side of the vehicle. You will need to remove the cover to expose the housing assembly. The a/c will need to be evacuated. I believe the lines come in from under the car and disconnect inside the car. You need to disconnect all hoses and electrical to the assembly and remove it as a unit if I recall. Hope this give you and idea of how it is done.

Hi there! I'm having a major problem with the power steering fluid pouring out of my 1998 Chevy 4x4 suburban...I was wondering if the entire unit may need replacing or it could be just as simple as a hose?...

Could be either, to check fill will power steering fluid, start engine, have some one turn steering wheel, and see if it's coming out of a hose or from the back of the power steering pulley, if it's a hose replace power steering hose, if it's from the back of the pulley, replace power steering pump, hope this was very helpful.

You'll need to disconnect that line from the pump, (some metric wrenches will be needed) and disconnect the line at the steering gear box. It may help removing the A/C compressor and the power steering pump and bracket from the motor to get to the line where it attaches to the pump.
