99.9% the problem is with the blend door on this model. This is a very common fail mode and is very expensive to have repaired at the dealer. HeaterTreater has developed an inexpensive, 100% effective fix for the problem.

1988 ford mustang wont blow out hot air of heater relaced thermostat?

With engine warmed up and running, open the hood, locate both heater hoses, feel each heater hose with your hand. If both hoses are equally hot, I would suspect you have a temp blend door problem. Replace the temp blend door actuator. If one hose is hot and the other is only warm or cool, I would suspect you have a plugged heater core, Try flushing it.
