Our 1993 Plymouth Voyager takes forever to heat up and provide heat. Probably thermostat?

Good place to start. Make sure you bleed system good with rad cap off and heater on when refilling system after changing thermostat. Do you get good heat when temperature gauge at normal operating temperature?

I notice that there is not an inlet water value from the thermostat to the heater core on my 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 engine is a 5.3 but I notice heater hose is hot and one is cold for the heater...

I have seen dexcool( orange coolant ) clog many things.If it was mine i would take notice of which side is cool and remove hoses and take garden hose and flush it out in reverse.In other words push water in from the cool side in the oposite direction that it normally flows.It worked on my 2001 buick.

My heat is blowing cold air.

Could be a number of issues:
Low Engine Coolant
HVAC controls,
or Heatercore.

Check in this order:
Make sure your engine coolant is not low!

Does your engine heat up to the proper temperature? If not, change the thermostat.

To check heatercore try this:
Keep your air turned off, after the car's engine is heated up nicely, turn the heat on and see if you get some heat for a short while. If this happens, your heater core is plugged.

Hopefully one of these help fix the problem for you as diagnosing the controls is harder.

Heater does not put out hot heat just slightly warm after a while

If thermostat has been changed and still not hot enough, I'd take a look at this link for my tip regarding poor heat. Remember to bleed system good and make sure you have heater on when re-filling/bleeding the system. Quite often at idle, it's poor, and when RPM's are increased the heater feels hotter in this case.

No heat at all coming out of the heater!!

these trucks are famous for plugged heatercores,what you do is,remove both hoses to heatercore at firewall, mark there location, next cut two peices of heater hose, about 12 inches long, slide on the heatercore where the hoses where, then use a water hose and flush in both directions a few times, then you should have heat, also if its been a while i would also have the cooling system flushed out, hope this helps. good luck.

It does'nt heat ,I flushed heatercore,chaged thermostat,bled the radiator, car does'nt overheat. hoses to heatercore by firewall are cold other hoses are hot.

Need to check the valve that opens and closes the heater hoses and allows the water to travel to/thru the heater core. 1992 Chevrolet Beretta 2.2L SFI OHV 4cyl The Temperature Switch is located: Under hood, center, upper engine area, next to water outlet, driver side of block, mounted below coolant temperature sensor

What should be the heat temporture on a 5.7 motor ?

The temperature should be running in between 200 and 210 degrees and the easiest thing and cheapest would be to change the thermostat try that out and let me know also if you get a chance if you can rate me if your satisfied.
