sounds like you have a plugged heater core, you can try to flush it out if that don't work then it will have to be replaced, and is very expensive because the dash has to come out

Sounds like plugged heater core. Inlet is good but it's to clogged up for fluid to travel through it. I've used vinegar and air compressor to blow it out through both hoses
