If I bypass my heater core will I still get heat in my car that is my question

My car has 93562 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello. No you will not still have heat. The heater core uses the hot coolant from your engine and radiates it into the cabin to produce the heat you feel from your vents. Also a bad heater core is a common cause for the heat inside of the vehicle not working.
