Feel the hoses. If they both are hot, it is the mixing door at fault. If one is hot and the other one is just warm, it is either the control valve or the core is stopping up. If both are just warm, change the thermostat.

My 1996 Pontiac sunfire in front of engine is a cord what is it used for?

Is it an electrical cord that looks like it would plug into a standard AC outlet? If so, it's probably involved in keeping the car warm in cold weather. It could be a block heater, a battery heater or an oil dipstick heater. Some block heaters are mounted inline in one of the radiator hoses. When plugged in, it heats and circulates the coolant through the block. The battery heaters are essentially a small heating pad that sits beneath the battery.
