Hello, the heater core is a small heat exchanger located inside the truck, similar to the radiator at the front of the truck. Coolant is circulated from the engine through the heater core and back to the engine. The heater fan blows fresh, outside air through the heater core; the air is heated and sent on to the interior of the truck. For Toyota Pick-ups/Land Cruiser/4Runner 1989-1996 check this reference repair guide...

(see Figure 1)

  1. Drain the cooling system.
  2. Remove the heater unit assembly. Have a lot of towels handy for the leakage of coolant that may spill into your interior.
  3. Remove the fasteners securing the core to the unit, remove the plates and clamps. Pull upwards to remove the core from the unit.
To install:
  1. Inspect the core fins for any blockage. Using compressed air, clean them.
  2. Install the core into the unit placing the plates and clamps into position. Tighten the core screws.
  3. Install the heater unit into the vehicle.
  4. Fill the cooling system.

Temperature control does not work

There is a mode door in those that controls where the air comes out and there is a blend door that controls the temp of the air. If you cant change from hot to cold then the problem is the blend door. You should be able to see it behind the glove box. The glove box door has stoppers on it that you can remove so that it drops out of the way, then you can see the plenum that holds the heater core and the fan. There is also a filter in the plenum for in cabin air filtration. Change the temp settings and see if any of the levers on the plenum move. If they move then the blend door is either loose or broken off inside the plenum.

It sounds like your heater core is done. That is in a tight spot in behind the glove box. Get a new one for around $60.00.

No heat/defrost 01 corolla

Sounds like you have air trapped in the heater core when you flushed the heater core. loosen the upper most heater core hose and run the engine untill coolant seeps out. Wait until the coolant has reached running temperature.
