THE STEERING COLUMN (DO NOT ROTATE THE STEERING WHEEL AFTER THE INTERMEDIATE SHAFT IS REMOVE, YOU WILL BREAK THE SIR COIL), WINDSHIELD MOLDINGS, AND DASH HAVE TO BE REMOVED FIRST. UNDER THE HOOD THE BLOWER RESISTOR, R/H INNER FENDER WELL, HEATER HOSES TO THE HEATER CORE AND SEVERAL NUTS AND BOLTS HOLDING THE HEATER PLENUM TO THE FIRE WALL INCLUDING THE HIDDEN BOLT UNDER THE BLOWER RESISTOR IN THE EVAPORATOR CORE AREA. THEN FINALLY THE BOLTS ON THE INSIDE OF THE TRUCK HOLDING THE PLENUM TO THE FIREWALL.

SOURCE: I will have to change the heater core in a 2000

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.

1. Disconnect the battery ground cable
2. Drain and recycle the engine coolant.
3. Remove the instrumental panel.
4. If equipped with the 5.4L 4V engine, remove the junction block splash shield.
5. If equipped with the 5.4L 4V engine, remove the bolts and disconnect the cable ends from the starter relay.
6. If equipped with the 5.4L 4V engine, remove the junction block bracket.
7. Disconnect the heater core hose couplings.
8. Remove the retaining screw and remove the A/C plenum demister adapter.
9. Disconnect the vacuum line from the A/C plenum demister adapter.
10. Remove the heater core bracket.
11. Remove the 13 plenum chamber top retaining screws.
12. Remove the plenum chamber top.
13. Remove the blend door assembly from the case.
14. Remove the heater core.
15. The installation is the reverse of the removal.

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.

I have a 98 Olds Intrigue. It is leaking coolant and water from somwhere on the passenger side of the motor. Replaced water pump and radiator is fine. Any ideas?


Depending on what engine you have, the 3.8 has a plastic elbow coming out of the lower intake manifold that goes to the belt tensioner assembly, which has 2 hoses coming out of it for the heater hoses. That elbow likes to crack. The older 3.8 has a nipple there which also likes to crack that runs to the heater core. Either way that's where i'd be checking first.

2000 Intrigue overheating


Needs to be taken to a shop and see if there are Hydrocarbons in the cooling system. This would mean it is a head gasket problem and that would prove it. IF not it MIGHT be the heater core... But most likely not.

Do you notice antifreeze dripping from the AC drain??? IF not... It is not your heater core.

98 intrique heater core out


your right. i just finished 5 minutes ago pulling my heater core out, 1999 Intrigue. If you are good you might be able to loosen the dash, push the bottom back and up and pull off the covers over the heater core for removal, not sure. i didn't have a manual so i pulled the complete console, complete dash, removing all electronics one at a time, remove top cover to get access to the top bolts, pull the rubber door trim from the side to get to 2 13mm head bolts on each side, the metal plate under the steering wheel must come out too, unhook all lights, switches, cig lighters, etc. phisicallly remove the complete dash. then pull off the bottom pieces, 3, of the black box, which holds the heater core. lots of little bolts around the edges, and one holding the heater core pipes. don't loose any of the thousand bolts. have fun.
