I am about to attempt this same procedure on my 97 also, according to the Haynes Manual, theres a screw on the parking brake handle that you have to remove, and one on the shifter also, after that its just a bunch of plastic fastners. once you remove the console and the floor panels, its supposedly just held in by 2 clips.

The question you ask is too involved for a proper answer. you need to go to a car parts store, and get you a repair manual for your car. They cost about $16.00.
you need to replace your heater core.
I am assuming you mean there is volume from the blower but it is cold. If so, First check your coolant level, if it is low the first thing to empty is the heater core. Check this and get back.
It is about a 3 hour job. It would depend on the hourly charge of your local shop, plus the cost of the heater core. Which I think is around 30 bucks.
You will need to remove the water supply hoses from your 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue heater core. Remove the heater core retaining bolts. Reverse the process to install your new heater core.
Yes, but you will have no heat. Your heater core is leaking and needs replacing.
The heater core is locate under the center of the dashboard. To replace you'll have to remove the center consol. There is a retaining pin on the front on the Shift handle that allows the top of the shifter to be removed. The Hoses are located in the center of the firewall under the power steering assemble. Not extremely hard to do if you are patient. My 94 Achieva's original heater core had Plastic connecting tubes. Check to be sure your replacement is all metal. Note Always replace the hoses.
To replace most heater cores you have to remove the dash on the passenger side.
In the engine bay, remove the inlet and outlet hose from the firewall for the heater core, get a heater hose connector that matches the hose sizes (fair warning they are 2 different sizes but i cant remember) and just join the 2 hoses together with the connector and some clamps. you wont have heat or defrost by doing this though.
Disconnect both heater hoses from heater core and connect them together
please tell me how to remove the heater to get too the heater coil
Most likely a bad heater core
May be a defective thermostat or heater core
Sound like your heater core is leaking? I have heard about this problem from other achieva owners. I think others have figured out it is a leak from the door moulding which allows water in and it puddles in the floorboard. I don't think it would be from the heater core.
take the 2 hoses off to the heater core and get a hose and flush out the core through both hose fittings on the firewall.
By the firewall, up and under the dash.
Behind the firewall, near the center of the engine compartment.
Probably the heater core, it is a beast of a job to do, but is gratifying to say the least. If the is a smell of antifreeze you can almost bet it is the heater core.
