years ago the manufactures switched to lead free compound to seal the connections and the cheap replacements don't last as long,look for a better quality replacement,or when you install it there maybe a sharp edge where the core rubs against ,some cores have a rubber gasket that goes around the core to protect it,check it to see if you installed it right.

Never open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Also when draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink ant that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.

SOURCE: my heater is blowing cold
You need to have two things in order to have heat: hot coolant flowing through the heater core, and air flow through the core and into the vehicle. With the engine warmed up, feel both heater hoses where they connect to the heater core. They should both be hot. If not, then you need to find out why there is no coolant flow. If you have already replaced the core, then you probably have coolant flow. Next, check the HVAC doors to make sure they operate properly, particularly the blend door. If the door is not in the proper position, then you will not have airflow through the heater core and into the vehicle.
