Check radiator fluid level. The heater core sets higher than the engine. If fluid gets low, air bubbles will go to the highest point. The heater core. Check temperature guage. Is engine warming up to normal range? If not change the thermostat. Also check radiator cooling fans with engine warm.
On my car if I set the heater control on anything other than "vent" both cooling fans come on and the engine will not warm up. (still haven't figured that one out) I just run the heater in "vent"
If heater warms up when engine is held at high idle(2000rpms) then cools down at idle, you most likely have air traped in the system.

Is your temperature gauge working now? That is of more concern then your heater as you wouldnt know if your engine was overheating until its too late. Your heater core could be clogged, they get clogged quite easily. You can flush them or replace. The part is inexpensive but on some models you have to take out dash to replace them, but on other models it only takes about 30 mins and a few bolts.

check the heater temp. control pot under the hood, inline on one of your heater hoses, it may be sticking causing hot water to only get to your heater core when the engine is at high r.p.m.s
