My 1999 Plymouth breeze has no heat, I changed the thermostat and made sure that it is full of anti-freeze but it barely warms up according to the temp gauge

Do you
have the same problem?

Could be a clogged heater core, air in the system or a bad head gasket.

The cable operating the blend door could also be an issue.

A shop can inject air into the cylinders and see if there is any leakage into the cooling system. 1 hour in labor.
