My son has a 1992 clio 1.4i rt auto, the heater takes forever to get luke warm, i have checked fluid levels and they are fine their also appears to be no air locks. Years ago you used to be able to get winter and summer thermostats and or temperature sensor can you still get them for this model? short of partially covering over the radiator grill i am a little stumped how to improve the heating???

Could be a faulty thermostat not letting the engine come up to proper temperature...also low fluid level could cause fluid to not circulate through the heater core.
Verify operation of thermostat, verify coolant level.
More info would be a help.
Quite a few idea's come to mind. 1) Thermostat is stuck open, causing the engine to run cool. 2) The vacuum valve that opens and closes the air "flap" is stuck open, allowing cool air in all the time. 3) The vacuum valve that opens and closes the line that feeds the heater core isn't opening all the way.
The dipstick for you car is the only thing I cannot remember.It will be to the back part of the motor and there is 2 in the engine bay.Its the one that is most probably towards the side.To check the trans oil level you warm the car up,park it and put the gears through all the gears and end up in nuetral.Now check the level.If it needs fluid,you fill it through the dipstick tube.SlowlyThe trans fluid bottles that you buy come with a tube to help fill the trans.Hope this helps
