Unless your coolant has spilled into the driver/passenger compartment first you must drain the coolant out of the hoses and then you must remove the shifter console. Directly behind the console just below the radio you should see a square shape plastic box which contains the heater core you must open the box by unscrewing or unsnapping the fasteners. (Be patient. It's going to get a little tight but you can do it without having to remove the entire dash.)

Pay attention to how it's set up inside the box and just disconnect the old unit and replace it with the new, remember to retrace you steps when putting it all back together, it should take you about 1-2 hrs.

Don't forget refill your coolant and in most cases you have to have your A/C unit recharged after doing a heater core replacement.

Call your local auto-parts store and verify the A/C unit having to be recharged only if your vehicle comes with an A/C unit installed.

The heater would not be working on a 1990 Dodge Grand Caravan if the heater core is damaged or blocked. Hot coolant from the engine must flow through the core to allow hot air to pass into the cabin.

If it is anything like my 93, your heater hoses run from the heatercore through your firewall. Mine is located in the center most are located on the passenger side. Pop your hood look at your firewall you should see two hoses relatively close together coming out of it, those should be your heater hoses, and they are a pain. I'm trying to get them on the new heater core now...

I am not an expert on the 1990 Grand Prix but on a GM product I would look for a round flasher assembly located near the fusebox downunder on the left side of the dash.

It is a very involved procedure. Get a manual on your car from the parts store or from AUTOREPAIR2000.COM

Check on the engine block or intake manifold of your motor. Most engines are cast with that information right on it.

The question you ask is too involved for a proper answer. You may want to go to a car parts store, and get a repair manual for your car. They cost about $16.00 Or, go to a Public Library.

Your best bet is to call around to salvage yards and ask for them, Their sould be one around.
