If you use water or garden hoses, then identifying a leaky hose is not difficult. All you have to do is seal the output end of the hose with a sprayer or cap and turn on the water. You will usually find the leaks as you will see water spraying out somewhere in the middle of the hose. Repairing a leaky hose is not too difficult. You can duct tape or electrical tape to seal the leaking parts of the hose. Please not that this a temporary solution and you should probably purchase a new hose if your does spring leaks.

Drain the water from the cooling system. Remove the heater core hose. Remove the retaining bolts. The heater core will come out. Reverse the process to install the new heater core.

Pull the hose and make sure that the heater core connection is in good condition. It needs to be clean and pretty round. If the hose has quite a bit of deposits or is brittle around the inside, you may want to replace it. The hose needs to be quite flexible to make a good seal. If it's more than a few years old you might want to replace it anyway

Re: How to replace 95 Achieva heater core... Drain the antifreeze. Keep the drain pan under the heater core hoses. Disconnect the battery. Remove the hose clamps/ 2 hoses fom the heater core from under the hood in the engine compartment. These hoses are hard to reach. You can try to reach the hose clamps from under the raised car. Inside the car: remove the center console if you have one (there is a little clip to pry out from the front of the trans-shift lever), heater ducts and covers and the square black plastic heater core cover. You will need various small sockets. Then just snap the 2 straps loose and replace the core. Make sure that the hoses are not the source of the leaks. Replace the hoses if they are old. One of the hoses is 3/4" on one end and 5/8" on the other end. So, you will need a hose size adapter in the hose if it not a factory hose assembly. I dont remember the size of the other hose.

Remove both heater hoses from the engine, then fabricate a fitting to attach a garden hose to one of the heater hoses. Direct the remaining hose into a bucket then slowly turn on the water until the water runs clean. Then reverse the flow by switching the garden hose over to the other heater hose and repeat until the water runs clean. Then replace the hoses to the engine and refill the coolant reservoir.
