I noticed today that my heater is having trouble keeping the air hot. As long as the car is in motion, it's fine. But if I stop at a light or anything the air begins to get colder until it's no longer even warm. What could cause this and how expensive of a fix is it?

Sounds like a clogged heater core see if both heater hoses at the fire wall going into the heater core are too hot to hold when the engine is at operating temp?
