In most vehicles you can see two hoses that disappear into the firewall. These carry the hot water to and from the heater core. find where they come out and return to the cooling system and connect the outgoing and incoming with one single hose. You will need to have less water in the system once you do this. If you are doing this in the winter, obviously your heater will not work anymore. Also, if you have any overheating problems, you won't be able to draw heat off the engine by running the heater once you do this. You can bypass it, by unhooking the heater hoses under the hood, and installing a coupler between the two hoses, thus looping the coolant flow back to the engine, without it ever entering the heater core.
Disconnect both heater hoses going through the firewall to the heater core. Connect these two hoses together.
