Is it blowing cold air? Just making sure it's blowing air at all. If it's only cold, you could have a theromstat problem - the engine may not be warming up. Check the hoses going into and coming out of the heater core. If they are both cool or luke warm, then it's a thermostat issue. If one is hot and one is cool, then you could have a heater core restriction. The exhaust fumes - make sure you do not have any exhaust leaks - this is bad all the way around. Besides that, make sure you have the reciruclation setting on, keeping air from coming in from the outside.

All the heater does is blow cold air. It does not make a difference what temp it is set on. I know it is not low on coolant, blower works, and the A/C still works. I can not get hot air to blow.
usually takes 20 to 30 minutes to get hot
The hot air stopped working on the heater. The fan is working, but it's cold air.
