Check your thermostat. if it is sticking, it will need to be replaced. Thermostats open at different tempature setting when they are working properly. Check with your auto parts to see what temperature rating your thermostat should be and buy one with that rating.

SOURCE: Temp Gauge Reads Hot all the time and no heat

air sometimes gets trapped in the heater hoses or heatercore itself pull the upper heater hose off the block,hold it in the air and try to fill it,that should push the air out of the line

i think it is the heater control valve i think it is mounted on the firewall by the top close to the hood it will have two black 5/8 hoses attached to it check and make sure it still has the cable attached to it before you replace

good luck here is the (how to) for your car

The heater control valve (sometimes called the water flow valve)controls the flow of coolant into the heater core from the engine.
Heater control valves are operated in three basic ways: by cable,thermostat, or vacuum. Cable-operated valves are controlled directlyfrom the heater control lever on the dashboard.
f48-04_3184.gifCable-operated heater valve used to control the flow of water or coolant through the heater core.Thermostatically controlled valves feature a liquid-filled capillarytube located in the discharge air stream off the heater core thatsenses air temperature and modulates the flow of water to maintain aconstant temperature regardless of engine speed or temperature. Mostheater valves utilized on today's car are vacuum operated. These valvesare normally located in the heater hose line or mounted directly in theengine block.
To replace a heater control valve:

  • Refer to your vehicle's service manual to locate the valve.
  • Drain or lower the fluid level in the cooling system.
  • Unclamp, unbolt and unplug the valve.
  • Reverse procedures to complete installation.
Identify the heater control valve carefully. It is easily confused with other parts.

When you turn on the heat or air car stalls out when stopped

The throttle body needs to be cleaned, grime in this area prevents the throttle plate from closing completely and allowing air to enter, making the air/fuel mixture lean.

Stalling issue

If your car has high miles and you haven't changed the coil packs, that may be your problem. Bad coil paks will cause hard starting, rough idle and stalling.
