Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The heater hoses should be as hot as the upper radiator hose, if not then the heater core is restricted, there is air in the heater core or a basic cooling system issue.

Does the engine reach normal operating temperature?

Have you tried bleeding the cooling system?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
bleeding did not help. no air in system
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
