Its actually pretty easy. The heater core is located under the hood, passenger side. Disconnect the two hoses running into the firewall. Remove the leaf guard then start pulling bolts on the black housing. (remember where they go of course, I had 3 different sizes on mine to boot!)You will need to disconnect the wiring harness on the top pf the housing and remove the blower fan before removing the housing. Once you have undone about 25 bolts you can remove the housing. If you have Air Conditioning you will see two "radiator looking things" one of them is your AC Condensor the other one is your heater core. Check a manual to be sure which one. (In my 77 Caprice the heater core was the one closer to the middle of the firewall) If you don't have AC then you should only see one "radiator looking things" that's the heater core, it should just slide out of its little home and you can then put it all back together.

WHAT????? I hope this is just a comment that you have a caprice and has nothing to do with either 110 or 220 volts Heater element implies either a furnace or a water heater. Where are you checking the voltage? If at the outlet and you only have voltage on one side of the plug it's most likely a fuse or breaker. If there is 220 at the outlet but element is not heating it is the element. Under no circumstance get 110 or 220 anywhere near a 94 Caprice classic

please tell me where this loose vacume hoes goes to on my caprice from the heater valve to where?

You have to take out the whole heater and air condiasioning system out and replace the new heater core in. When you replace the heater core, you firset have to put the air condiasoning system in then the heating system/ heater core. When you take the old systems out, you first have to take out the A.C then the heater.

could be an air lock in cooling system could be vac operated valve faulty sticking

the heater motor is under the glove box, pull out lower cover and remove side kick panel and and heater will be mounted with 3-4 screws becarefull when lowering blower motor, the fan cage is plastic and may break, I had this happen to me,

By heater element I am assuming you mean a heater core. If that is the case then you have one of two problems. Either the thermostat is stuck open and needs replacing or the heater temperature control valve is defective.

take lose your heat and air controll box turn on heat take line lose one by one which ever line is sucking would be it.
