Help. No heat

I posted this earlier, but I think I put it in the wrong section. I have a 2008 f250 with 120000 miles. I have no heat, period. With the engine at normal operating temp I get nothing but cool air. Yesterday it would blow hot for about 30 seconds before it went cold. I don't have any coolant in the floorboard or smell coolant in the cab. Coolant level for engine is good. I do not have duel climate control, just the old fashion turn knobs. Any ideas? I'm stuck and really don't want to pay a dealer to diagnose. Please Help

What was the problem? Glad to hear your coolant level was fine. Mine ended up needing a new radiator (fortunately 100% warranty!). When my heat went out, the radiator was bone dry. Not what you'd expect on a brand new truck

Just above where the lower radiator hose goes into the block, their is a small metal tube that comes out of the block and turns upwards towards the EGR coolers. This connection has a small leak at the block. I took a pic of this up to the ford dealer and they said it was part of the EGR cooler system. I add coolant and distilled water (about 1 gallon a week) and check my levels everyday. Got a appointment on November 13 to have the problem deleted. As long as the coolant level stays up, i have great heat.

How about posting up that pic?
