heat issues.

when the truck gets warm i turn on my heat and it is hot for about 15 secs then goes cold. Is this a thermostat gone bad or something different?

Wish list- regulated return, injectors,tubo this list could go on and on.

Try back flushing the heater core prior to replacing. Remove hoses and connect garden hose to return side, then reverse to check the flow.

I used 2 gallons of extended life coolant and 4-5 gallons of purified water

so i replaced my heater core today, i am glad i didnt take it to a shop and let them charge me for 8 hours worth of work it was simple. But was not the issue... i had to buy too heater cores because they offer a light duty one and a heavy duty one and i wasnt sure which one it took. any way after getting it all back together and driving back to the parts store when the truck got heated up i turned on the heat and it still blew cold air out... now i am upset ha so i returned the light duty heater core and told the guy that it didnt fix my problem. He recommended a radiator cap and sure enough for 6.99 before i left the drive way it was blowing out hot air.
