Heater core should be behind glove box. Remove glove box and screws( approx. 8) that holds cover in place. Pop hood and look for two hot water lines running into firewall at that location(passenger side) Remove lines by loosening hose clamps(advisable to replace) Remove heater core from inside and replace.

You have to drop the steering column and pull the dash. Then after locating the heater core case below windshield you have to cut out a piece with a Dremel.

Sounds like 1: the heater core was never fixed or 2: the coolant system wasn't filled and purged properly. if the car is loosing coolant and overheating i would check the heater core. if its low on coolant or has air in the coolant lines you wont get any heat either.

86 Celica gts blows no heat?

As with most vehicles, with coolant reservoir full, engine running, warmed up and hood open, feel the heater hoses with your hands. If both hoses are luke warm or cold, you may need a new thermostat. If one hose is hot and the other is luke warm or cold, the heater core is probably plugged up, in which case you can try flushing the heater core. If both hoses are hot, you probably have a problem with the temp blend door in the HVAC system behind the dash assembly.

Heater not working in 86' Honda prelude?

You could check the hoses connected to the heater are still in good shape. You can also check the fuses associated with the heater (ie: blower motor) to make sure thay aren't blown. There's the possiblity that the heater element may have broken down, which can happen given the age of the car.

How do you change a heater core on a 86 pontaic firebird?

I have successfully completed this repair but be forewarned it is time consuming and occasionally frustrating due to the extreme tight space you will have to work in.In the Engine Compartment#1. You will need to raise the front end of the car. Either drive onto a pair of ramps or jack the car and support on jackstands.#2. Disconnect your battery's negative power cable.#3. Drain the radiator.#4. Remove the drain hose from the bottom of the heater case.#5. Place a bucket or pan beneath the heater case( near the firewall where the heater hoses attaches to the heater core).#6. Disconnect the heater hoses (2 in number). They are small tube-like hoses that are clamped to the end of the heater core. Allow any fluid in the hoses to drain into the bucket/pan. NOTICE: The hoses will be firmly fastened, if not fused to the core. You may have to cut and twist the hoses where they attache the to the metal tube ends of the heater core and replace with a new hoses upon completion.In the Interior of the Car#7. Work on the passenger side. Push the passenger seat as far back as possible. As odd as it sounds it, it may be better to sit upside down with your legs hanging over the back of the passenger seat to comfortably reach all the components. You must remove all the screws on the underside of the dashboard just above the floor mat area on the passenger side only.#8. You should make a simple drawing of where each screw you removed came from and the order that you removed it. This will make returning all screws and parts infinitely easier!. Place the screws in a secure container. Do MIX NOT THEM UP with screws that you will find in areas of the dashboard not normally visible.#9. Working from Right to Left remove all screws from the aforementioned area(s) until until you reach the radio/heater console. This will cause the dash to disassemble section by section. You will also have to allow the floor light and it's wiring to hang freely. Pay particular attention to the screws and nuts/bolts and securely place aside.Remove the heater duct outlet(large panel-like pieces of plastic)and glove box.Make a simple drawing and note where all parts go. It is not necessary to remove the heater or radio. You will find many invisible screws in the underside of the dash. This process will take approximately 3 to 5 hours over a 2 -3 day period.#10. When you have removed all the duct work/panels. You will see a plastic cover over the heater core. Pull straight back--Do not Twist! Failure to follow direction may break the core's drain pipe.#11. Remove the heater cover clamps and remove the actual core. CAUTION: The core is made of metal and has very sharp ends and corners. Wear gloves when attempting to remove/install.Reverse all instructions to install new core.
