Could be a cooling system problem; Ranges from a leak in the radiator, radiator hoses, coolant reservoir, low coolant, even a bad coolant reservoir cap could cause it. Also water pump is a possibility. If not those, could be a bad blend door actuator.

1 check,Feel the heater hoses,do they get hot ,both or one?They should be hot,if not flush the heater core directly with a hose,back and forth at each hose connection.
2nd check,clamp off the top rad hose and force the hot water through the heater and check heat output.If there is heat with top rad hose clamped change the thermostat,it's either leaking or defective,new or not.

The heater is blowing cold air


heater control valve not allowing radiator water to flow through the heater core where the heater blower motor blows the heat that radiates off the heater core into the vehicle cheap fix or you can bypass yourself by replacing valve with piece of 3/4 copper pipe and 2 hose clamps

Check you have coolant flow to the heater core - feel the inlet and outlet coolant hose as near as possible to the heater core- they should be both be hot and approx equal in temperature.
If the outlet hose is noticably colder you may have a blocked heater core ( a reverse flush with water from garden hose may fix it).
Check the cooling system has been properly filled, with the heater coolant valve open, bleeding off any airlocks as required.
Check any cold/hot air re-direction vane within the cab heater air ducting is operating properly (not seized or stuck).

The heater blows cold air and the anitfreeze is leakig


the clamp is definitely not tight... tighten it first and see if there is a change in heat also refill what you lost in antifreeze also see it the hose itself is not leaking if so replace both to be sure and possible flush the heater core while your at that point .

Heater blows cold air when idle


Sounds like you may have a partially plugged heater core. You could flush this out separately, from flushing radiator & engine block. Diconnect heater hoses going to your heater core and clamp off, so not to loose coolant from engine. Now hook up separate hose to one side of heater core pipe and flush out with typical garden hose. Repeat procedure on both heater core inlets. Reconnect original heater hoses and test difference. You may have to add an additional litre of antifreeze. If this don't work i suggest changing heater core. Good luck.........Ron.

Heater blows cold air


With the car warmed up,feel the heater hoses,are they both warm/hot near the firewall in the engine compartment?If they are both warm/hot,then the heater core should have circulation through it and it may be a "blend door" issue in the heater a/c assembly.If they are not warm/hot then the heater core could be dirty and plugged up and needs to be flushed.
If the above does not help,a drain and vacuum of the cooling system and vacuum refill will remove any trapped air.
Sometimes,clamping off the top rad hose and holding the engine rpm at 2000 rpm will force trapped air out of the heater core.(Watch temp gauge when trying this)
Lastly,a NEW thermostat doesn't mean its working correctly.
