Also added new antifreeze and clean water after flushing. I am curious if this could be the temperature sensoror a thermostat iissue. Thank you so much.

Thermostat could be stuck open. Locate the two raditor hoses going to the firewall of engine compartment. With engine warm feel theses hoses --- Is one hot and the other not? If so stopped up heater core. Is both hot? Blend door issue under dash. Is neither hot or just luke warm? Possibly stuck open thermostat.

Thanks dandyoun I'm going to try changing thermostat and hopefully that does the trick. It would be a very nice thing to have some heat with winter approaching. Thanks again
