I take it the water level in the expansion tank is ok. You could have a blocked core in the heater. Also the heater could be leaking. You could try flushing the cooling system and checking for leaks and blockages.

Unfortunately, the HVAC system in the F-150 seems to have been poorly designed ... for years! My wife's 1999 model wouldn't produce hot air last winter, so she took it to the local Ford dealer. They diagnosed the problem as a broken blend door ... which seems to be a very common problem. The replacement part is cheap ... but you have to pull the entire dash out to replace it. Labor was more than $500 ... took an entire day.
Earlier this winter, I drove the truck and noticed that only slightly warm air was being blown out the vents. Back to the dealer ... only to discover the temperature control knob on the dash was cracked ... and for a mere $40 the dealer replaced it.
Drove the truck a week or so ago ... air only getting slightly warm again.
Solution ... only drive the truck in warm weather ... the AC works fine!
Someone ought to file a class action against Ford for such a faulty design.

Check your blend door, check the actuator that operates the door, go to the middle of your dash and look down, find the black cover at the bottom, on the right side you will find the motor that moves the door, either the motor is bad or the door is broken, test the motor by removing it (should be a white square box held with 3 screws), and operating the temperature control while watching the motor drive, if the motor is good check the door drive it will probably be broken, use a mirror to see it, if the door is broken, to change it is a hard job considering that the entire dash must be removed. Hope this helps, let me know.
