The heat in my 2000 Ford Ranger is not as hot as it used to be and sometimes its just cold. Would that be the Heater Core?
Generally the heater core, flush your radiator out, usually solves it, unless it's to the point of just needing replaced altogether.
Verify operation of your thermostat and that your coolant is in good condition and full.
