heater not getting warm

I have a 2002 Mitsubishi galant. The heater is not pumping out any heat at all. It is cold air only. What could be the problem? Please let me know the possibilities. And will it be expensive. THANKS FOR ANY HELP

You may be low on coolant or have a thermostat stuck open if the engine temp guage stays in the cold range. A thermostat is cheap. Check the coolant level 1st or have it checked at a full service gas station. Could be something else such as a blend door problem.

PS-have the heater core checked as well. My two cents!

Say, Four Eyes, how does one go about checking the heater core (other than for a leak)? What would one look for and how would you go about doing it? Thanks.

Does this car have a temperature gauge? If so is the car warming up? I'm also thinking thermostat).

Yeah if the engine is actually warming up but no heat it could be blend doors or heater core
If the engine is staying cold therefore no heat then that could be thermostat
The coolant level check should be first
