Name is***** goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back,
I suggest you first check the coolant level .
When you start to hear coolant flow behind the dash then you have low coolant.
If coolant level is good have the shop check the thermostat it could be stuck in the open position .
This is a quick check and test and should not call more than 1 hrs labour.
Worst case would be a stuck heat control door that is stuck on cool air flow .
