been blowing cold until then. I took it and had it checked, they vacuumed and

thermostat is opening up too soon...get a NEW 295 degree thermostat...that is a cheap solution....should open up when the engine temp gets to 295...you will HAVE HEAT then~

Did you check the center vent above the climate controls? Is the position of the vent to blue or the white center dash and not red?
