It is a lenghty process to replace them... i suspect ford/lincoln were the worst i ever worked on. be that as it may there should be bolts in the engine compartment on the firewall that he would need to remove. also to remove the hoses attached to the heater core he will likely need a special tool which can be borrowed from autozone or if you are in canada, canadian tire.

1999 ford taurus heater core

I am assuming your core is done...first undo the clamps under the hood along the firewall ... you will see to pipe and hoses that looks like it goes into the car. Once they are unclamped pull the hoses off and put a bolt inside the hose ends (to avoid leakage). Now go under the dash of the car (passenger side) behind the glove box and remove the blower...once will see the core and remove. To replace reverse the process.

Where is the heater core located on a 1999 F250 4x4 crew cab V10 Gas Super Duty? I was told under the hood and I have been told access is in the dash. Two very different costs to get fixed.....

Heater core is under the dash, the dash will have to be remove to replace the heater core, you will also need to have the a/c system recover, evac, and recharge if the system has freon, when this repair is done, this is about a 10 hrs. job.

I have a 1996 grand prix se I believe that my heater core is leaking how hard is it to change it in this vehicle

It's a big job. The heater core is accessed from inside the car under the dash. If your car has a center console, it must be removed, along with the glove box and the under dash covers. Then you'll see the actual heater box. Removing the box will show you the core, but you'll need to go under the hood to disconnect the heater hoses before you can remove it. Obviously, you need to drain the cooling system first.
Also note, when you replace the core and put the heater box back in, the box has to be sealed for proper operation. In some cases, either RTV sealant can be used, or foam tape.

How long to change heater core on 1999 ford ranger and can this be done from engine compartment or from inside truck cab

The heater core is located inside the cab behind the glove box. The dash has to be removed to replace it. the outside evaporator case has to be unbolted to gain access to the nuts holding the heater case to the firewall. If you are not comfortable removing the dash,have a qualified person do it.
