A stuck or broken thermostate would do that if the moter temp takes a really long time to warm up the thermostate is stuck open and needs to be replaced if the moter warms up to fast or over heats the thermostate is stuck shut and needs to be repalced. the heater core its self could be plugged and may be fixed by back flushing with water if you do it your self flushit seperate from the moter to prevent what ever may have plugged it from re-entering it.

I would look at bleeding the cooling system properly as the symptoms you describe are those for an airlock in your heater system. You should be toasty warm with 2 miles if everything is working properly. Do you have antifreeze in the system? Is the weather freezing at the moment? Is the thermostat working? This would be my top suspect if after bleeding all the air out there is still no heat. It is easy and cheap to replace the thermostat.
Another thing to look at is a partially worn out or not spinning water pump impeller so that the water does not circulate properly at under 2k revs....
Could you please get back to us if you have found the solution as it will help others.

I'd take it to another place to get it looked at. Does your car overheat? Are there cold spots on the radiator after the car is warmed up? The heater is very closely associated with the cooling system. Sometimes a bad radiator can cause problems with the heater. You will be able to tell if the control flaps are working if air is coming out of the proper vents on the settings they are supposed to.

Diagnostic code p0171

code p0171 refers to system too lean-bank 1===causes --intake /exhaust leak---AIR system MAF/VAF sensor--fuel pressure /pump/ regulator---injectors--HO2S IF the thermostat working ok then the engine will get hot enough up to 85 degrees minimum. May be you have an air lock in the coolant system or the heater control is not opening the flow control to the heater core properly

What could cause my truck to have no heat?

the heater radiator could be blocked or the valve controlling the heater could be faulty ,,,, carefully check the heater hoses ,, they are the small ones running from the engine bay through the bulkhead into the car,,,they both should be hot ,,, if one is cold the water is not circulating either due to a blockage or the heater valve not working ,,, if the car has climate control you need to be sure that it is serviced properly as this system mixes the hot and cold air,, also at 210 you should have some heat , the best way to check if its the thermostat is to run the carstationary until it gets hot even if the thermostat is faulty the system will build up heat due to no cold air passing through the grill and coolng the engine radiator

My heat does not work properly

sounds like you have an air lock in the system, look for a bleed screw on hose or pipe.
when vehicle is cold remove coolant resevoir cap and fill with the bleed screw loose until coolant comes out of screw.Then tighten screw refit cap and run engine.
if unable to find bleed screw raise the front of vehicle as much as possible and top up coolant.

Is there any advise to improve gas efficient, what about replace air filter hose system

NO NO NO, to replacing the air filter system. There is a lot miss leading information as to the "Cold air intake systems" We have tested and shown our clients that not very many work, and most are all "HYPE"! We have used temp reading equipment and monitored the temp from the air cleaner to the intake manifold. We found the stock equip was far cooler (60 DEGREES) than the "cold air systems" THEY WERE USING OR WANTING TO USE. The main reason for this, they where not properly insulating the tube. The cold air tube was absorbing the HOT air from under the hood, and the outside temp flowing through it was not cooling it off, like the factory one does. If done properly, the temp would be much cooler, but there is no aftermarket companys that send the insulation package with the cold air system. We have used insulation from a local heating/air condition company that they use on duct work. This made a significant difference in temp from the outside air to the throttle body, and made it a REAL COLD AIR SYSTEM. Keep the tires properly inflated, get a 4 wheel alignment to insure the tires are rolling straight and true, keep the filters clean, switch to a synthetic oil, wax the exterior of the vehicle for less wind resistance,( ever seen a high speed car dirty?) push on the gas pedal when taking off, and letting the vehicle coast down when coming to stop, using less brakes. Hope this help you
