This may or may not help. I am working on 98 at the moment. I have the heater core right in front of me. Passenger side, under the dash board, behind a plastic panel that is held in place with 8 screws. I can see it but I cannot get is out. Still working on it.
I have the exact 99 e150 v8 van. and I'm working on replacing my heater core now. the core is located as stated above. i had to remove several pieces of metal under the dash to get the heat core cover off. A top screw on the cover was particularly hard to remove.
next, the core has two connections through the firewall to rubber heater hoses. After having taken the core out, in retrospect I suggest you just cut these connections any way you can - even cutting the heater hose line (obviously close to factory coupler end). For 2 reasons; I found it nearly impossible to back the heater core out from the firewall with the factory couplers still on the ends.. AND the two ends are of no reuse to you any how.
The reason being any replacement heater core you use - a Ford part of otherwise isn't going to have the factory style clips on the two female lines that connect to the rubber heater hose lines. (one is 5/8" and the other 3/4"). You can buy a coupler kit from Ford along with their replacement heater core. Same for other OEM solutions (like from Rockauto), who will sell you a couple quick connect female couplers.
Or you can use good quality hose clamps.
The heater core is located behind the dash inside the heater core box with two ports, an inlet and an outlet port protruding through the firewall into the engine compartment.

On the 1994 BMW 530i, the heater core is located under the dash in the engine compartment. You know the heater core is bad when it starts to leak.
The temperature of the coolant entering the heater core is controlled by the engine thermostat. The engine coolant thermostat is generally located at the engine end of the upper radiator hose.
The heater coil and a heater core is the same thing. Hot water circulates from the engine and through the heater core then back to engine generating heat for your heater system.
The outlet from the engine that feeds hot coolant into the heater core is usually (but not always) located close to the thermostat. The return hose from the heater core usually returns into the water pump.

The front heater core is located behind the dash on the passengers side and heats up the front section and the rear heater core is located in the rear located behind the passengers side rear panel and it heats up the rear section..........
A very basic answer is: The hot water the engine produces is circulated thru the heater core. The heater core looks like the autos radiator only smaller. The heater core is located inside the heater box. So as the engines hot water circulates thru the heater core the heat will transfer into the heater box. As long as the engine is running and everything is working properly the heater core will stay hot inside the heater box.
