However when I turn the heat on it does not allow the car to heat up immediately, then when my windows are fogged up it takes time to clear the windows what could this be. thank you

It takes time for an engine to warm up. The heat from the heater comes from the water running through the engine. If the engine is cold, it will take a while for the heater to work. If the engine has a thermostat problem, it takes even longer. The thermostat is not supposed to open until the engine is heated up. If it stays open, the cold water takes a lot longer to heat up. A quick check is when the engine is cold, start it up and with the radiator cap off , have a look in at the radiator water. it shouldn't be flowing as the thermostat shouldn't be open. If the water is flowing on a cold engine, I would say the thermostat has jammed open and that's why its taking so long to heat up.

When cold weather warming up car takes a long time to heat up blows out cold air then after you drive for a while it warms up

sounds like the thermostat might be stuck open. the engine uses hot antifreeze to heat up the inside of the car if the thermostat is stuck open all of the antifreeze will be circulating all the time and it will take a long time to heat up. I would try to replace the thermostat

Looking for an assembly diagram for a thermostat for a 1999 for taurus 3.0 SOHC. Or assembly order of gasket, before the thermostat or after it? Also, could lack of heat in car be due to something other...

Thermostat and then gasket. As far as your heat problem goes I would guess heater core, maybe partial blockage. 90% of the time heater core is the problem with no heat. The other thing it might be, but only if the engine itself isnt getting all the way hot, would be your temperature sending unit. That controls when your thermostat opens and closes.

My cars interior is not being heated.

If the motor over heats it may be the water pump. A motor will not run very far with a bad water pump or stuck thermostat. Most of the time a water pump won't quit pumping water they leak. If the motor won't get hot enough it is the thermostat.

Overheating, low fuel efficiency, fuel smell in cabin

Sounds like coolant ports in the engine block is gunked up. Did you maybe notice the coolant ports when you changed the head gaskets? And, or, change the radiator cap,if you haven't already done so, I've seen them heat up over that too.

97 GMC Safari heater takes forever to get warm.

It sounds like your thermostat is bad - it has become worn to the point that it will not close anymore, making the coolant circulate all the time- this is why it takes a long time to heat up, because it never builds heat before the thermostat opens.
