Question about 1989 Ford F 150
So you want more heat in extreme cold? block part of the radiator off with a cardbpoard sheet..not more than half of it.. old truckers trick.. some school busses use a snap-on grille cover..it stops the very cold air from cooling the radiator too much and not warming the motor enough to be of any good..

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.

SOURCE: My heater in my car
These taurus' have a notorious problem with the blend door actuator(controls hot and cold air mixture) failing.This is located in the cab of the car underneath the dash right in the center.This is not a diy project unless you have fairly extensive mechanical background.What you can check with ease though is to make sure that your coolant is full, this can cause a no heat condition.Also get your car up to normal operating temp and place your hands on the inlet and outlet if the heater core hoses, on the engine side of the firewall, and make sure both hoses are hot, if they are both hot then it is a blend door issue, if not then you have a restricted heater core, you can back flush your heater core by removing the hoses and placing a garden hose to either side and flushing it thru. I hope i could help....rate me accordingly.Thanks!!!

It is much more likely you are low on coolant or you have an air bubble trapped in the cooling system. You should bleed the cooling system to get any trapped air out and make sure it is full of coolant.
