, welcome. My name is***** will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long response.
The two most common reasons to happen on these vehicles is a sticking thermostat or a restricted heater matrix inside of the dash, the thermostat is more common. What I would suggest is to have the thermostat replaced and the cooling system flushed which will take care of both.
