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.

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.

To replace most heater cores you have to remove the dash on the passenger side.

May be a defective thermostat or heater core

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.

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.

By the firewall, up and under the dash.

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.

Behind the firewall, near the center of the engine compartment.

inside the passenger compartment behind the glove box. to find any heater core, open the cars hood and locate the 2 heater hoses. They will go through the firewall and they connect to the heater core.

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.

Raise the froth of your car. Drain the radiator. Remove the heater tube from firewall and loosen the hose clamps. Lower the vehicle after draining the antifreeze. Locate the heater core and remove the mounting clamps. Remove the heater core and replace it.
