With the engine at full operating temp, locate the 2 heater hoses where they go into the firewall and feel them to see if they are both hot to the touch. If they are.

The temperature is controlled by the use of an air mix door that is operated by an electric motor/actuator. This door can be jammed or the actuator can be inoperative or have stripped plastic gears internally.

Is the engine running at normal operating temp? Are both heater core hoses hot when the heat is on and the engine is hot?

Let me know what has been done so far.
