Hello, The normal operating temp for this car is about 95°C. If your car is not running this temp after it warms up, you probably have a bad thermostat.
If you are not getting good air flow, have someone ck your cabin filter. It could be stopped up bad giving you weak airflow. It is located on the right side at the bottom of the dash.
If you find this information to be correct would you please enter a "fixya" rating.
Thanks, Gator241

Heater blows cold air and the temperature guage reads cold after driving for 20 minutes


Best case scenario is your thermostat is stuck open. When this happens the engine will take a long time to warm up and will never get up to full temp. Worst case could be a serious problem such as a blown head gasket. If there is no coolent in the engine the temp gauge will not register either.

No heat blowing cold air.


Do you smell coolant inside of the vehicle. If so then chances are your heater core is going.

Heat goes in and out and the temp gauge goes up and down


Your temp sensor has nothing to do with your heater. The temp sensor needs coolant in order to work properly. So first check the coolant level because if it is low your heater will act the way you describe. Once the coolant gets low enough the heater will blow cold. Another possibility is the radiator cap. After the engine has warmed up it expands when it cools down it contracts. As it is contracting if the cap is weak air can be drawn into the system and cause air pockets to form and will cause the same problem

Heater blows cold air then hot air then cold air. but mostly cold air


Check your coolant level. Especially after you drive it and it starts to cool down. You have air in the system and it needs to be purged. Sad to say but chrysler/ dodge are bad for this problem. Some times you have to remove the hose from the heater core spout to get it purge correctly. You have to do this while it is running.

You may have an air pocket in your system which some times happens.  One way to get rid of it is to take the upper hose off on the engine side,  fill your system with water until it runs out from your engine block, replace the hose, start your car turn you heater on and set to hi keep the radiator cap loose until the temp start to rise then close tight.  Once the air pocket had been remover you can drain some of the water from the radiator using the lower drain plug and add antifreeze.
