Does any coolant flow through the intake manifold? I've replaced my radiator and thermostat an my car is still overheating. The heater core recently blew. I have a new water pump but not installed yet. Found some moisture in my manifold but there is no moisture or water in the oil.

The heater on my 2001 Hyundai Accent is not working properly. Sometimes I get hot air, sometimes I don't, sometimes mist and a funny smell come from my vents. Also there are times in which the thermostat gauge will go high, as if engine is overheating and then goes back to normal? I have been told it might be the heater core, what steps can I take to troubleshoot and make sure it is the heater core and not something minor? If it is the heater core, how do I access?
