Lucky for you I was working on one of these today! (the stalls when hot and then after restarting immediately stalls again deals)

The alternator on this engine is easy to get to and replace. It is in the top left corner of the engine (when facing the car from the front). All you need to do is remove the two wires off the right-side (back end) of the alternator, pull the serpentine belt off the drum, and rmove the mounting bolts. I usually find something to tie the serpentine belt to like the hood or something with a rope so it is easier to put back on when putting the replacement piece in.

Drain the water from your 1990 Chevy Corsica cooling system. Remove the heater core water supply hoses. Remove the heater core retaining bolts. Reverse the process to install the new heater core.
