Question type: Maintenance & Repair

HEATER BLOWS COLD AIR BUT NOT ALL TIME. SOMETIMES IT WILL WORK AND THEN AGAIN I WILL TURN HEATER DIAL OFF AND ON AND OFF AND ON AND SOMETIMES IT WILL COME BACK ON AND SOMETIMES NOT. ONE PLACE SAID I HAD A COOLANT LEAK BUT SON IN LAW FILLED IT UP AND IT APPEARS FULL. WHAT DO YA THINK?

That's most likely a heater core beginning to plug up with sand. If you flush the core out before it completely plugs, you might be able to save a bunch of money. You certainly don't want that core replacement bill.
