I cant begin to describe how to replace your heaters core however you can buy a repair manual at most any autoparts store for your 1985 Chevy Cavalier by Haynes or Chiltons that normally explains this procedure. (At Your Own Risk) As for bypassing the heaters core that's simple disconnect the two hoses from the core and install a coupling between the two simply making a loop or take one hose off completely and take the other hose off the heater core and run it to where you took the other hose off the engine either way you will be making a loop from point A to point B of your engine not the heater core.

How do you bypass heater core in 1994 CAVALIER?

On the firewall, engine side, will be 2 hoses held onto the heater core pipes with clamps. Make sure the engine is cool, and get a bypass peice from your local Autozone, or what have you. Unscrew those clamps, and take the hoses off, then put the 2 hoses on the bypass pipe, and clamp back down. Do this only when the engine is cold. You will likely have to have the car up on jackstands, or wheel ramps. Its much easier to access the pipes from under the car. If you are tackling this job, you might just consider replacing the heater core while you are there. Its only about 30 mins more work, and is fairly easy. Best to grab a service manual for detailed instructions on this.

If its just the cord, then follow the old cord to the back side of the engine ( really the side of the engine closest to the firewall ) and replace it. When the engine is cold, plug it in and you will hear the block heater heating up. If you don't hear anything, then replace the heater also. That requires a little more knowledge.

This is a common complaint with mk2 Golfs, most of which were fitted with a heater matrix bypass valves to prevent the heater matrix from bursting under certain conditions. These bypass valves can fail, cutting off supply to the heater matrix resulting in no heat. Either replace the valves or remove them and fit a heater matrix from a mk3 Golf. These are stronger units and don't require bypass valves.

If the heater core is not replaced can it cause damage?

If your heater core is LEAKING engine coolant so that your engine coolant level drops too low or the engine coolant is lost completely and causes your engine to overheat then your engine can be damaged beside the mess the leaking coolant makes inside your vehicle ( you might be able to just temporarily bypass the heater core so that no engine coolant is flowing through the heater core )

Why do you have no heat yet the engine is warm in your 1994 Chevy cavalier?

There are several reasons why this might occur. If your fluid level is low, your engine will not circulate enough antifreeze to fill your heater core ( which usually leads to your engine overheating, but not always if you are just borderline low), if your heater core is plugged (most common) or if you have a sealed system and there is air in the system which prevents your liquidfrom running through the heater core. The most likely cause is a bad heater core which is bad news because it is hard to access, therefor hard to replace.

Not necessarily. It depends on what you mean by a bad heater core. The core will either be leaking or stopped up. If it is leaking, then it can cause the engine to overheat and the only fix is to replace it. A clogged or plugged heater core can sometimes be fixed by flushing it. You can also temporarily bypass the heater core until you can get it fixed. Just connect the inlet & outlet heater hoses together.
