Probably one of two things. either the HVAC Heater Control Valve in the heater hose, or the thermostat needs changing out. If it were the thermostat, you would notice your temperature gauge not getting to normal temp.

My temperature gauge is reaching normal temp so its not the thermostat. Where is the hvac located at?

Good morning. It is located under the hood in one of the heater hoses. Check this sight out for a picture... https://www.carid.com/four-seasons/hvac-heater-control-valve-mpn-74852.html?singleid=228464582&url=1266217

Yes that also, there are HVAC Blend Door Actuator under the dash,this sounds like its more of the problem. You can check your heater hoses to see if their both hot when the temperature control is set on hot. That would be checking the to see if the Heater Control Valve is open for heat. So this is what the Blend Door Actuator looks like... https://www.carid.com/1997-mercury-grand-marquis-air-conditioning-heating-parts/dorman-hvac-heater-blend-door-actuator-16860363.html
