Why would a 1998 Blazer blows cold air when the heater is on and the engine temperature is around 190?

Sounds like it could be a possible bloked heater matrix try removeing connecting hoses a jet-wash the matrix out both through the inlet and outlet until water flows free. The motor for the temperature door in the plenum isn't working. As you increase the temperature control on the dash, it sends a signal to a motor which opens the door to the heater core. Yours is sealing off the heater and allowing AC or fresh air only.

The temperature of the coolant entering the heater core is controlled by the engine thermostat. The engine coolant thermostat is generally located at the engine end of the upper radiator hose.

It's a BLOCK heater, not a radiator heater. It goes in the engine block, most of the time it goes where a freeze out plug is. You have to remove freeze plug to install it.

Thermostat stuck open or heater core clogged. I had a similar problem in feb.2005 with my 1998 S-10 Blazer and it was due to the Dex-cool had turned to sludge , and that caused lots of problems. The first thing to do is after the engine is warmed up, feel the heater hoses going into the heater . if they are hot then the problem is in the heater, probably just adjustment or fuse. If they are just warm to cool then the answer is in the engine, probably needs a thermostat. answer can also be the temperature control switch in dasboard of car
