cars heat seems to run at about 70% when car is warm and rolling. Slowing to a stop, it begins to blow cooler air. Antifreeze levels appear to be fine, and the temperature gauge is reading normal. Please point me in the right direction to remedy this issue.

    The basics - start by having your thermostat inspected. It could be sticking open too early and often. That is the first thing to rule out.

    The kit is 399.00 at Mitsubishi here in Lakeland, and if you let them do it they quote 400 in labor. I have had several mechanics say they will do it for 200, but they told me to make sure I buy the kit from Mitsubishi and not online. I need to have it done before this summer, as I cannot spend another Florida summer like I did last year with no AC. I mostly made all my grocery trips, etc., at night lol. Good thing I work and move about at night!
