Is the coolant full? Air blend door inoperative, plugged heater core.

I will double check coolant. Where is the air blend door? How to check the heater core?

Air blend door is inside the heater box. To check the heater core you can test the temp of the coolant going in the core to the temp coming out of it with the heater fan off, the temps should drop at least 10 degrees, but I would recommend it be checked professionally as you are dealing with hot coolant and components.
