Check coolant level and strength of antifreeze. Antefreeze that is too strong in a vehicle will not heat good. If that is fine replace thermostat with a 190 degree one and try that. If it still doesn't heat check heater core for blockage, flush out or check fins for debris.

Any heater that only blows luke warm air isn't getting warm or hot water to the coil. This sounds like a problem with the thermostat not closing, and allowing the engine to heat the water properly for the heater.

What can cause heat to blow cold?

check both heater hoses under the hood with engine at running temp. if only one hose is hot your heater core is restricted( try flushing it out),m low coolant will also cause no heat since the heat comes from the hot coolkant in the heater core. if both hoaes are hot chances are the blend air door in the interior heat unit is faulty or climate control is not calling for heat.

Would bypassing the heater core hoses on a 92 Taurus be safe for the engine?

This Would Not Allow Heat Inside The Car. And Would Not Damage The Engine. If You Bypass The Heater Core You Have No Heat. The Heat Comes From Yhe Water Flowing Through It From The Engine. Its Winter Try To Have The Heater Core Repaired Or Replaced. the heater core is the only thing that provides heat to the inside of your car so bypassing it would leave you cold but it will not hurt the engine as long as you couple the two hoses together
