The heater core is located under the hood in the heater box where the blower motor is. Remove the heater hoses then the box can be unbolted and removed.

Why would the heater blow hot air all the time on my 79 Corvette?

There is a valve which controls the flow of coolant to the heater core, which is a small radiator located inside the passenger compartment. If this valve is open, hot coolant will be pumped into the heater core, which will get hot and warm the air passing over it. If the lever or temperature selector in your vehicle does not control that valve, then the cable is broken, or the electrical control device is not working.

What could be leaking into passenger floorboard in 79 corvette?

I am not sure, but it sounds like your heater core may be leaking. You may be lucky, and only have a hose leak. But most of the time its the core that goes bad and needs fixed or replaced. You may check under your hood and look at the two hoses that go into the fire wall on the right side of the car. If your lucky one may be leaking at the clamp and only need to replace that clamp. But most of the time it will be the heater core in the fire wall that's the problem and need's replaced or fixed. If you need to drive the car before getting it fixed. You can take both the hose's off the core at the fire wall. And connect them both together with a two or three inch pipe and two clamps. This way you can still drive your car until you get time to have it fixed. Be ware though that by placing both hoses together you will not have a heater. Good Luck M.C.S.

How do you replace a heater core in a 1979 trans am?

You picked an extremely difficult one.......It would be best to get a Chilton's or Haynes for this. I will tell you that it requires pulling the passenger side fender and inner fender well to gain access to it. Some of the later models....such as your '79 have an impression in the fender well that you can cut and bend down to gain access. When done, you bend it back up and seal it.

How do you replace a heater core in a 79 Firebird with AC?

boy you sure picked a good one i know this sounds bad but its the easiest way i found first remove your hood followed by your passengerside fender to get to all the bolts you need next remove the heaterr hoses next unbolt the housing and remove the outside half unfortunately you now have to go inside and remove the glove box and the ductwork from the passengerside as well you should be able to see the heater core by now if it still has the factory heater core it will probably be stuck (i used a small pry bar)after alot of twisting and turning it will com out if yours does like mine did but dont worry to much 'cause the new one slipped right in Good luck man and if it not to much trouble roll'em one time for me

Where is the blower motor located on a 79 trans am and how do I get to it?

The blower motor on all 70-81 Firebirds and T/As is located behind the passenger side fender. Complete pain to change. The best way is to pull the hood and the passenger side fender and inner fender well. Some people simply cut a hole in the inner fender well to get to the fan and heater core. Suggestion.....if you do either of these procedures, change out the heater core while you are in there. Save you from doing it again when it finally goes.
