Check to see if the temperature control cable is moving when you slide the adjustment lever, the temperature control door under the dash should move from hot to cold when you move the temp control lever. If the temperature door operation is OK then check the heater hoses under the hood. With the engine warm, both heater hoses should be warm. If only one hose is warm then you have a coolant flow issue through the heater core. This could be caused by a faulty heater water valve if equipped or a restricted heater core.
