If you replace the HEATER CORE, you might want to also replace the BLEND DOOR MOTOR as well while you're in there. These units tend to go bad very often in Crown Victoria's and Grand Marquis'. The job can be difficult but there are several ways to short cut it. You had to remove the dash board but if you have a 3 ft 2x4 or bar, you can prop the dashboard open after getting 75% of the screws out. The heater box is located behind the glove box. Take screws out from the top of the dashboard(right under windshield) and sides for easy access.

When i pour water in my radiator it just runs out under the dashboard underneath the car


Your heater core is leaking. It's under the dash and looks like a small radiator. Your heater motor fan blows through this to create heat inside your car. There are 2 heater hoses that run through the firewall to the core under that dash. If it were mine, I would go to a parts store and get an adapter so I could bypass the core by hooking the 2 heater hoses together. You will not have any heat in the car then, but at least you can drive it until you decide to fix it yourself( I'm pretty handy, but would not replace most heater cores myself as the can be very difficult to get to ) or get the best local price locally to have it done.

It's a big job but nothing especially difficult (several hours at least). Recommend you buy or borrow (library?) a repair manual that has the procedure in it.

Going to your local public Library would be best at this point.
Also,,i should warn you that replacing the heater core is a difficult job for someone inexperienced, and even when you know what you are doing, it is difficult.
