Are you sure you are full on coolant? The heater core in my ol' Mercury gurgles when the system is low on antifreeze. A stopped up heater core will not cause you any trouble with your engine running too hot or too cool. BUT, if you have something in your system that is causing clogs in your heater core, then that could be causing you trouble.

I bet if you fill your radiator up your trouble will go away.

But that won't address the problem that you likely have of a leak in the system somewhere (internally or externally).

Do as Jason said, make sure the coolant is full and clean.

Warm up the car. Feel both heater hoses. Tell us if they are hot to the touch or not. If they are, it's a vent door problem inside the car.
