Question about 2002 Ford Taurus
Blows luke warm air will get warmer and cooler, both hoses to and from fire wall are hot.
Sounds like temp control valve is not working properly, or there is air in the cooling system, or the cooling sytem needs to be flushed. First thing to check for is air. Is the coolant level low? Also look in top of radiator while engine is cold and running to see if the coolant is moving and does it look dirty/sludgey.

both hoses is hot signifies thatcoolant circulation is just fine check the blend door actuator it might be stuck.pan the heater temp controller from hot to cold do you feel any change in temp of the air from the blower?if you dont feel any change check the blend door actuator

I have the same problem on my 2000 Taurus. I've been told by a Ford service technician that it is probably an intermittent problem where the blend door gets stuck in the 'heat' position. I have electronic A/C controls, and there is a diagnostic procedure I can do where it runs the blend door through its full range of motion, and which seems to get it unstuck. If the problem happens again (and as I said, mine is intermittent), you might try doing the same thing by turning the dial all the way from hot to cold and back again a few times, to see if it gets unstuck. Or you could try to repair/replace the blend door.

Check the coolant level.Feel the heater hoses going to the heater core to see if they are warm,or hot.If one of them is warm,or hot,and the other is not,remove the heater hoses,and flush the heater core out with a water hose.Bleed the coolant system,and you might want to install a new thermostat while you are at it.
