I just went through this nightmare with a 94 escort and it is a pain. The heater core is located in the worst possible location as the instrument panel, dash and trim, environment controllers have to be removed. The speedometer cable has to be disconnected from the engine compartment and from the instrument console. The biggest pain for me was trying to figure out where all the bolts are located that hold down the dash board. The 2 manuals I have only listed 4 bolts down below the console, and I had a hard time figuring out where the rest of them were. There are 2 bolts on each side next to the door fronts and 3 bolts right under the windshield that are accessed by removing the plastic defroster trim in front of the dash. It is held down by one central screw and a bunch of clips. I still have screws left over after putting things back together so try to document where everything comes from... Good luck

The heat exchanger is the most expensive part to replace in your heater. The recommended thing to do would be contact a professional and have it installed.

Find your owner's manual that came with the heater and they give explicit advice on taking care of your pool heater.

How do you replace a heater core in a 1999 ford f250 v10?

Keep the car's owner's manual handy. Remove the screws or bolts that hold the heater core in place. It may be that you need to remove more parts of the car in order to get to the heater core. Disconnect the intake and outtake hoses from the heater core. Remove the heater core from the car, taking special care to keep the core upright so no coolant spills out. Place the new heater core into the car, and reconnect the hoses as they were connected to the old heater core. Screw or bolt the new heater core into the car, and replace all the other removed car parts.

What could be wrong with a 1995 Ford Escort if the gas gauge and heater does not work after taking the gas tank out for leakage repairs?

Well, the sending unit for the gas gauge should be on the fuel pump. It's possible it was damaged while removing the tank, or it's possible that the electrical connector was not plugged back in. As far as the heater not working, I don't believe that to be related.
