If you are talking about a gas heater and the pilot light will not stay lit, you probably need to replace the thermocouple. That is the piece that is sticking into the pilot light flame. If it fails then the heater will not open the main valve. You will need to know your make, model, and serial number to get the correct part. I suggest you visit the attached website to learn about replacing the part using their video selection. To find the cheapest price for the part I suggest a web search once you find the part number.

Car starts runs and drives but stops driving if I wait 30 mins car will start and drive again

I think it is the ECU (Electronic Computer Module) that had a glitch in it. If it happens again try to remove the battery negative cable for a few minutes then reconnecting it again. If it starts, it just re-programmed itself. Make sure everything is off when you do this. Radio, heater, everything.

weird one and i do feel you should call a mechanic and stop spending money you do not need too ,something is wrong with the feed and suspect the relays that you replaced are the wrong internal connections

2002 mazda millenia 2.5 v6 just replaced timing belt that was broken...double and triple checked t belt alignment is correct put it all back no start...compression is 50% suposed to...

Can stop cranking. With compression figures that low, it will never start. Are you sure the figures are accurate? Throttle wide open when cranking up pressure? Compression has to be at least 100 psi for the spark to ignite the mixture.
If the belt broke while engine was running, and if it is an interference engine, you may have sustained some bent valves, internal damage to one or more cylinders, but not, I don't think, to all cylinders. I don't understand how you are getting such low compression on all cylinders Those figures sound like both head gaskets are failed, or the timing is way off.
Review your timing procedure and recheck compression. Something is definitely wrong. Hope you can figure it out. Good luck.

The wrong antifreeze was put in my car. It had gotten gummy and I had to get a power flush so it would stop over heating. Since then my heater has stopped working which i figure the heater core will need...

If I may ask, what color was the antifreeze that you took out of your car? If the coolant is not actually overheating, the coolant temperature sensor could be bad. Check the routing of the serpentine belt. It is possible to get the belt on wrong and turn the water pump in the wrong direction, which would cause overheating because the coolant would not be circulating as it should. That would also prevent the heater from working since the coolant would not be flowing through the heater core.

When you turn on the heater makes a clicking noise out of dash and heater doesnt blow hot air

It's the "blend door actuator." Ford part # 19E616. It's a part that basically blends cool and hot air together to provide the desired climate. There's a cheapo little part of it with plastic gears that strip-out and then you get this clicking sound as though the heat is trying to work.

The part costs ~$70...install might run you around 2 I'd have to guess it's about a $200 or so fix.

I had this part repaired just over a year ago, and now it's failed again. Nothing but endless problems with the Explorer I bought brand new...actually wouldn't start a few days after I bought it and dealer couldn't figure out what was wrong...neither could 4 other dealers. No more Ford for me...ever!
