Step one is getting the vehicle up to operating temp and grabbing both heater core hoses in the engine compartment on the firewall while heat is being commanded. Both hoses should be extremely hot meaning there is good coolant flow. If there or one is cold then you have heater core blockage which a flush may resolve and if not then a new heater core is needed.

If the hoses are hot then lets check for a broken blend door or a broken blend door cable. Remove the cable connection and try to operate the door manually to get heat.

I have attached some pictures and files showing pictures to aid in access and diag.

could there be air in the cooling system and if there is how do i bleed

There will be air in the cooling system if you have opened it to replace a component like a water pump or thermostat or hose. If the coolant is low then it can be leaking or there can be a headgasket concern which can cause air in the system. Bleeding a ford cooling system is easy. You start the engine cold with the coolant cap off and let it idle for 15 minutes to bleed all air pockets out then install the cap and its bleed.
