Actually if your handy the heater core on this car is pretty easy..  passengers side under the dash... but here is a link to some sites that will probably help  
from .... one of the wikki sites.. LOL cant remember which now

The heater core is located under the dash, in the center above the "hump". The container holding the core looks like a black plastic box. Remove the ash tray for easier access. You may have to also remove some other covers under the dash. First drain the radiator. Then you have to disconnect the hoses. There are two hoses connected to nipples of the heater core that are thru the center of the firewall. This has to be done from underneath the car while raised. I also had to unbolt a frame support to get to the hose clamps (I have big hands; you may be able to reach them without unbolting it). Remove the screws that hold on the cover to the heater core. You should be able to get the old one out now. Just go in reverse order to put it back together.

also this link is very handy they have a pretty complete collection for MANY vehicles

OK, Ifound the problem with mine. Dont unplug your air dryer. I checked the 2 hoses coming out from the heater core and still one was hot and the other not hot. The top one comes from the radiator fill tank and the bottom one comes out of the core and goes around to the front and into the water pump. I disconnected both close to the core and could runwater through both directions so upon further examination, I disconnected the hose at the water pump and no water flow. The hose was plugged up with something. Once I cleared it with a hanger and reconnected it I had water flowing through the core and great heat. Hope this is your problem too as it is aneasy fix

SOURCE: how to replace a heater core out of 97 buick skylark

There is a free way to find out where it is which is what you'll have to do first, go to any parts place which should have a diagram or they can just tell you over the phone. i will tell you this, hope that it's on the passenger side because if it's on the driver side you will need to pull the dash to get to it. If it's on the passenger side like the blower motor you can just drop the glove box door down to get to it. It looks like a little box woth two or three small hoses or pipes going to it which are failrly easy to disconnect. Hope this helped, good luck!

For re-installation just go in reverse order to put it all back together.

You have to remove the entire front of the heater case to change thecore. This usually looks a lot easier in print than it actually IS.Theinstructions say to remove the lower part of the dash for access; usually youdon't have to remove the entire dash for this type of service, althoughsometimes it makes things easier if you loosen and remove any components notmentioned in the procedure that are in your way.
This kind of repair can be frustrating, as it involves working in tightplaces and with 1/4 drive extensions and universal sockets to get all thefasteners out, but it IS possible.Here is what I have for the factoryprocedure. I don't know of any shortcuts to make the process easier; if you can'tget it off, perhaps removing the dash completely for more room would be aviable option...

Have a 94 Buick century. Replaced thermostate. Running hot. Looks as tho is leaking underneath front near pump. And also in passenger floor board can't see the leak from inside. It's just alwa


Whenever I see a system which is leaking from more than one or two places, I do a head gasket check because that tells me that the system is experiencing above normal pressures. the wet floor is a heater core. whether it's a water pump or some other thing near it only you can tell. Actually it rarely happens, but the wet floor could be the hose where it meets the heater core at the firewall; again, only you will be able to tell the difference. if the hose connection looks dry, assume that it is the core itself.

Hi, this symptom indicates restricted flow through the heater core. Recommend you try back flushing the core by removing the heater hoses from the heater core (in the engine compartment) and hooking a garden hose to the lower port using a splice. If the core will not back-flush, replace the core. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Where is the heater core on a 1995 Buick Century?


If it is necessary to remove the heater assembly, the cooling system must be drained before removing the heater core.
When a heater core leaks, a new heater core is installed or the old one repaired.
Heater Housing
  • The heater housing is usually under the dash and must be removed to gain access to the heater core.
  • Procedures for replacing the heater core vary with the year, make, and model of car. It threfore necessary to consult the manufacturer's repair manuals for the proper procedure for replacement.
f74-01.gif The heater housing is disassembled to get to the heater core. Heater Core
  • Remove the access panels(s) or the split heater/air conditioning case to gain acess to the heater core.
  • Remove the heater coolant hoses.
  • Remove the cable and/or vacuum control lines (if equipped).
  • Remove the heater core securing brackets and/or clamps.
  • Lift the core from the case. Do not use force. Take care not to damage the fins of the heater core when removing.
  • To reinstall the heater core, reverse the removal steps.
When the heater core leaks and must be repaired or replaced, it is a very difficult and time-consuming job primarily because of the core's location deep within the firewall of the car. For this reason always leak test a replacement heater core before installation.
