    Check you coolant level it may be low enough to not circulate any through the heater core

    If you are getting heat into the driver area of the cabin it could be one the of the doors in the heater vent is stuck shut or only part the way opened. Alot of the vent systems will run off of vacuum to open and close the doors inside of the vent system. There would be no real way to estimate what it would take to repair this without 1st seeing what the cause was. Sorry, I think you would need to take it to a repair shop and have them 1st diagnose it before a real quote could be given.
