It is inside the vehicle towards the centre front of the floor, against the firewall and floor. If you want to remove it you will need to drain the coolant from the radiator and disconnect the 2 hoses going through the firewall. Remove the side panels from the centre console.Then comes the heater ducting and the core cover. You have very little space to work in so lots of patience is called for. And begging, followed by swearing and pleading. Once done you will have saved yourself upwards of $500 in labour costs.

I need to know how to locate and replace the heater core

On most vehicles you can find the Heater Core behind the glove box. You need to remove the Dash Board to get to it. Look under the hood on the FireWall you will see 2 rubber hoses going through the wall into the cab of the vehicle, those two hoses are the Inlet and Outlet ports of the Heater Core.

1991 corsica coolant leaking out of by firewall

Let's hope the first fix is the right one!
You should have two heater hoses running from the engine to the heater core, which you cannot see under the hood.
Typically, the hoses are about 1 & 1/4 inch diameter, and black.
That part ( the heater core) is inside, under the dashboard, sort of behind the glove box.
The heater core is just on the other side of the firewall from the two hoses, which are usually "together" (means they are about an inch apart) where the hoses attach to the heater core through the firewall.
If the problem is coolant ( you can tell by the color and/or taste), you likely have a heater hose that is old and cracked and leaking.
Take a flashlight and look carefully, you should see sign of wetness around the ends of the heater hoses and maybe on the firewall.
Those hoses usually last about 10 years before needing replacement.
If you find one leaking, you should replace both of them, unless the other one has been changed recently.
If you change them, you'll need to drain the radiator coolant and the hoses and collect the coolant for reuse or disposal.
I would also put on new stainless-steel band clamps.
Remember when you put it all back together, you will need to "burp" the air out by running the engine with the heater on full for about 10 minutes at a medium speed to get the water pump to pump accumulated air out.

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.

Heater core - where is it?

Heater cores are located in the passenger compartment, under the dash behind the glove compartment at the firewall, if you look in the engine compartment and follow the the two black hoses that are about 1" to 1-1/4" diameter as they go towards the firewall on the passenger side of the vehicle(towards glovebox area) they are connected directly to the inlet and outlet tubes that are part of the heater core. Good luck !

Replacment of heater core on 01 chevy S-10

Have replaced my heater core in my 2001 regular cab 4wd in december 2009. Had to pull the complete dash including the complete metal dash behind the dash that you see. Also had to remove the right passenger side inner fender well to acess the remaining two bolts that hold the heater core cover to the firewall. Its an insane job to do but the repair shop books call for 9 1/2 hrs to do the job. I'm not an expert but this is what it takes.
