My 2004 ford freestar has no heat. how do I add antifreeze or check if it is the thermostat

When the engine is cool, take off the radiator cap and add fluid till full. Also add coolant to the overflow tank if needed
To check the thermostat, leave the radiator cap off, turn heater controls to high heat, and start the engine and run it till at operating temperature (this is to remove air from the system.) Coolant level should drop a bit when the thermostat opens, so you may need to add more. Replace rad. cap when engine is warmed up.
The only way the thermostat would cause no heat is if it were stuck open. So feel the upper radiator hose as the engine warms up. It will be cold or cool till engine starts to warm up-should take about 10-15 minutes, and then the thermostat should start opening, and the upper hose will start getting hot. If the engine takes a long time to warm up, like 30 minutes, the thermostat may be stuck open, needing replacement. If all seems good, check the actuator doors (temperature blend door) on the heater case. The doors have to open properly to let air from the blower motor to pass across the heater core, and then out the vents.
Good luck. If the coolant level was low, that was likely the problem.

I have a 1996 ford explorer and my heater when I first get in and it slightly warmed up the heat works great then as i drive a little the temp gauge goes way up 2 hot then back down to normal and the...

You probably have air in the system. Take off the radiator cap and start the engine. Turn the heater on hot. Let it warm up and fill the radiator as the level drops. Make sure the thermostat opens and coolant is flowing in the radiator. Continue to add coolant until the level stops dropping. Also check for any bleed ports on the hoses or housings where they attach. If you see any bleed ports, crack them open and let any air out. Put the cap back on and see if the heater is working. If this doesn't work, please get back to me.

My car's temp gauge takes 20 min to move up and for my heat to get warm.

most likely its the thermostat. its stuck open alowing the coolant to circulate to the radiator before it warms up. the thermostat should remain closed keeping the coolant in the engine block trapped to alow it to heat up faster. when replacing thermostat its recommended to check coolant condition and replace at the same time

Bublling in the thermostat housing and very hot upper radiator hose

I recommend flushing the radiator thoroughly if not done recently. there seems to be some sort of blockage in the radiator at this time. if you get lots of metal fragments that are flushed out during this flush, i will then recommend a rebuild on the radiator or replacement of the radiator. make sure the cooling fans are cycling on time as well.
