I have replaced these before. It is a complex repair and the entire dash has to come off. It is not a job for a DIY unless you are very mechanical. If you want to try it you need to get a repair manual because the steps are to lengthy to list here.

2000 dodge durango.Had a new heater core put in found out remote start not working

Take it back to whomever replaced the heater core and tell them that your remote start no longer works. They probably moved some wires around or disconnected something that is now affecting the remote start..The heater core is usually replaced by taking apart the heater housing under the dash board, where remote start devices usually are. Good luck!

Coolent leaking from rear of engine can not see from where. When I stopped the car the fluid kept coming out. Engine overheated, I checked the front hoses they are dry and no leak from the radiator. What...

You could have a leak coming from the intake or even the heads. Before digging into those difficult items, I'd check all of your freeze plugs for damage/wear/rust/leaks.

My heater blows out cold air all the time when on, what could cause warm air not to come out

either the vent system is stuck on the fresh air intake or the heater core is plugged, Does it smell funny or just cold. this is not an easy thing to fix it takes ripping apart the dash to check the intake flapper or ripping apart eh dash draining the coolant from the engine, replacing the heater core under the dash and then flushing the system.
It can be done but will take some time and thinking to get the dash apart they don't make it easy. your call

Heater core removal/instalation

Underneath the dash not visible not reachable until you take the dash off. I've never heard of any vehicle that you don't have to remove ar take apart the dash. Taking it apart should not be difficult just tedious. Get a Haynes Repair Manual. You'll learn how to take it apart step by step, no guessing.

What is the easiest way to replace the heater core in a 2002 mitsubishi diamante

2002 diamante heater core sits in center of the dashboard just over the on board computer for the car. To access it you need to take out the console between the seats and the entire dashboard to get to it. The only thing wrong with the heater core is the leaking gaskets (about $10 in parts). Mitsubishi knows about the problem and when the dash is taken apart you will see a plastic sheet over the onboard computer to somewhat protect it from the leaking heater core gaskets. So the expense in the repair is in the labor to get it all apart and back together again. The dealers seem to replace entire heater core when they fix this problem. I did just the gaskets and that solved the problem. I have read others who did it themselves only replaced the gaskets and that solved it for them as well. Maybe the dealers think you will feel better replacing a larger part for so much labor.
