    I'd flush the heater core. This is a common problem with your make and model. First check to see if it is working. With the car at operating temperature and heat on, hold both the hoses coming out of the heater core through the firewall. If they are not both hot, disconnect the hoses and flush with your garden hose, pulsing the water to dislodge the gunk. Then reconnect the hoses and refill with 50/50 mix to the proper level. That should fix the problem.
