Question about 2001 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
Coolant is good. Just replaced thermostat - its good. I'm thinking the heater actuator!. Always blows cold air. Never gets hot
You could have a blocked heater core. Check for two heater hoses running into the firewall in the back of your engine. They should be together and about 5/8" in diameter. If one is hot and the other is cooler then your heater core is blocked. Unhook both hoses and use a garden hose to back flush. Be sure to catch the coolant and dispose of it properly.

Temperature Control Blend Door Failure No Heat or no AC (dependes on
where door sticks)
all modern cars there is a tiny DC electric motor driven gear drive
that moves a plastic door that blends heated and cooled air from the
AC and the heater core, this is called (interestedly enough) the air
temperature control blend door actuator. The motor that moves this
door fails because the door starts sticking from warping, most common
complaint is no heat but it can be no AC as well. To replace these
parts (blend door and blend door actuator) you must remove the entire
dash from the car. Always have this problem confirmed by a dealer or
qualified repair shop as it is a very expensive repair.
Other causes of no heat in the cabin are engine thermostats that are stuck open (engine runs cold) or air bubbles in the cooling system.
