    lets determine the problem first before throwing more parts at it.

    what was the original issue?? cold and hot air from the AC?? do you have ac guages to give me readings from the high and low side??

    why did you change the heater core??

    you have a leak somewhere. take it to a shop and have them install dye and let them tell you where the leak is. dont throw anymore parts at it till you know where the leak is located
