Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the problem is a lack of airflow then you either have a blower motor related problem or a physical restriction in the heater box or duct work preventing airflow. The problem could be electrical or it may require heater box removal and disassembly to repair.

Do you still hear the blower motor running when there is no airflow?

thanks for the response, but confusing, i read in the haynes manual something about a/c temp sensor, but i cannot locate it. also as a reminder when i first start the car the air blows normal but only for a few seconds.

If it's a lack of airflow then the problem is either a physical restriction to airflow or the blower motor isn't operating correctly.
