Question How do I change the heater core in a 1997

The temp gauge is up. The blower only throws out cold air. I've changed the thermostat; drained the radiator. Still no heat. Does anyone have a layout of the heating system in the dash?

Try the blend door actuator, I just did mine about a month ago, that is probably your problem!

Fireranger has a forum on it, it's what helped me figure out what was wrong

welcome. have to pull the dash. two bolts on the driver side behind the fuse box cover, one behind the kick panel on the passenger side, three under the black defrost trim panel along the windshield, and one that holds the steering column together right at the firewall (inside). i just pulled one at the junk yard and it took me about 15 minutes to get it out. you may not need to undo the steering column, you may be able to just swing the dash over out of the way with it still connected.
