The heater core is located under the dash against the firewall on the passenger side. You'll need to remove whatever is necessary to access this area. Once you're back there, you can remove the vent box assembly, which houses the heater core. Replace your core and reassemble the vent box. Reinstall the box under the dash and reassemble whatever else you had to remove to access it. Also, you'll have to remember, before you start this, to disconnect the heater hoses from the core on the engine side of the firewall. Be prepared to catch some cooling fluids leaking out of the hoses when disconnected. BEWARE! Ethylene glycol (anti-freeze) is poison to pets and other small animals. Don't let it drain to the ground without washing (diluting) it away with fresh water. Note: This is not an easy job. I would rate it at about a 4 on a scale of 1-10, most difficult being a 10. Luck!

The heater core is inside the Hvac housing, under the dash.

no considering the front is more boxy and wider in the front. the 1990 bumper is rounded to fit the 88-98 pickups , the suburban kept the box style until 1991. your best bet would be to find a 1973-1987 silverado,custom deluxe,cheyenne, or bonanza bumper or a suburban bumper from a 1973-1991 suburban

Pretty difficult you will more than likely take have to take the whole dash out... It will be an all day job

It should work assuming the leak isn't too big. Try it you have nothing to loose.

try changing out the heater core or the therma stat may be bad
