SOURCE: 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.

Coolant leaking into cab of 1992 chevy s10


The heater core is leaking,this is what fills with coolant,and heats up from the engine,and the blower pushes the warm air from the heater core into the cab.The garage would be the best bet to replace the heater core for you.

1996 chevy blazer, need to change the heater core. Can someone point me in the right direction or give me a diagram?


the right hand side of the dash underneath you will find a box with water hoses attached that will be the heater core, possibly look under the hood on the pass side and see if you can get to it there . probably not though. it will be difficult. go to pep boys and pick up manual for your model of vehicle will show everthing.
