HEAT IS NOT HOT

2001 Ford Taurus

Heater problem
2001 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 119, 49 miles

The heat coming out sometimes is hot but 85% of the time it is only warm.I replaced the thermastat, flushed the heater core that was replaced last summer the head gaskets were also replaced at the same time, I also checked the heat mixer door and that seems to be working fine.

P.S. The thermastat is 195 degrees

THANK-YOU

Isolate and flush heater core

make sure to block the bypass hose
check coolant

I disconnected both hoses at the heater core and flushed it out with a garden hose, water flowed out perfect.
