There is either a access panel under the hood or you get to remove the heater box under the dash to get to it.

SOURCE: HEATER CORE

Going to your local public Library would be best at this point.
Also,,i should warn you that replacing the heater core is a difficult job for someone inexperienced, and even when you know what you are doing, it is difficult.

A few things you may try before the expense of a heater core, and the labor putting another one in.
First, I just want to mention I have used Bardahl stop leak, and it worked very well for me, It's a good product. Also, you're right, the a/c commpressor is a seperate issue.

Now, you mentioned you changed the thermostat, the following test is just to make sure it's working properly, and to check the coolant circulation.

1. With the heater temp and blower off, start your vehicle and let it run 6 to 8 minutes to allow it to reach normal operating temperature. then;
turn your heat temperature and blower wide open, when you do, listen very closely in the engine compartment, you should hear a small click from the thermostat opening up to allow ciculation of the coolant.

2. Turn the engine off. Carefully reach behind the engine, at the fire wall where your inlet and outlet hose, ( both about 1 inch in diameter ),hook up to your heater core. feel each one of the hoses. If both are hot, then your coolant is circualting through the core. If only one of them are hot, then the coolant is being blocked from circulating through the core, and if that is the case I would probably try flushing the whole cooling system first.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: where is the heater core located at on the 93

WOW, sorry it has taken so long for someone to see and respond to your question. You've probably figured it out on your own by now, but if not, here is your answer. The heater core in your Caprice is located behind the glove box. To gain access, you have to remove the lower right dash insulator panel (below the glove box) and than the glove box. Remove any vaccuum lines ( mark their locations.) Then remove the lower instrument panel brace and then the heater core cover. Remove the heater core clamp bolt and clamp. Disconnect the heater hoses from the heater core on the left hand side of the engine compartment( looking at the engine from the front of the car.) Then remove the heater core.

1994 Caprice LS. Little to NO heat.


It will be the heater core. If you can smell it inside the car and it's steaming up the windows the core will need to be replaced. Remove the heater core housing and check to make sure its leaking from the core itself. You might get lucky and have a leak from the hoses running to core instead. Hope that helped.

Getting water in front passenger floor boaed, what might cause it?


Clogged or disconnected drain hose from the heater core box. Or bad/leaking heater core. Does the liquid smell like coolant. If so bad heater core. If not and the water only when you use the AC then it is a drain hose issue. If neither of those pan out you could have a leaky windshield. However 99% of the time a wet passenger floor is caused by a bad heater core or drain hose.

My heater will only blow hot air once in a while. it has full anti-freeze the core is not clogged?


Low coolant level will cause this situation,and clogged heater core,but it is most likely the low coolant level.

My blower works for air/heat but only blow luke warm air. My freon is charged. Any ideas?


Look for a heater control valve under the hood connected to one of the heater hoses and make sure the valve is operating properly. This is what allows the hot water to pass through your heater core. Also your heater core may have a blockage.

1994 chevy caprice no heat. changed termostat. antifreeze full. fans in back of radiator are not moving


Heater core is plugged or you have a air pocket. If you take off the heater lines and try blowing through them both ways. The fans will not move until the engine gets hot.
