I had this problem once in a Honda. It turned out that mice had made a nest in the duct, which restricted air flow. Any number of causes could restrict air flow in or out of the blower. Use an inspection mirror to look into the ducts. Underhood facing the front of the truck, the heater fan squirrel cage is on top part of the firewall on your left. There are three screws that hold it in. You may have to loosen/move the washer fluid resovoir also. After the squirrel cage is loose, unplug the unit from the wiring harness. Now pop out the rubber cover from the electric fan motor. You'll be able to see the brushes and the shaft. These get dirty and lose contact. Use q-tips and some rubbing alcohol while spinning the fan to clean. Should work pretty good after that.

You should have 2 hoses running into your fire wall that goes to your heater core. They will be close together. They will also be coming from you cooling system somewhere. You can cut those hoses and get tube and a couple of clamps to join those hoses together. I wouldn't do that unless you live somewhere warm though... You will need to replace your heater core in order to have heat during the winter... I would go to your local library and check out a Chiltons or Haynes manual on that vehicle and look through there to see about the heater core.
