MY HEAT'S NOT HEATING RIGHT ??? HELP???

I HAVE A 2005 F-250 W/ 6.O POWERSTROKE. MY HEATER WILL NOT GET HOT MOST OF THE TIME, JUST BARELY WARM ! AND WHEN OR IF IT DOES GET HOT, IT ONLY STAYS HOT FOR AROUND 10 TO 15 MINS, THEN GOES SORT OF LUKE-WARM ! IT SEEMS TO BE HOTTER WHEN IT'S IN THE DASH VENTS, BUT WHEN YOU TURN ON THE DEFROSTER, OR FLOOR, IT GETS COOLER ??? DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT COULD BE CAUSING THIS???

THANKS, JASON

What are your coolant temps? Do you have any way to monitor them besides the dash gauge? I'd look at your thermostat first and see if that's the issue.

First check an make sure you have enough coolant. As simple as that sounds it could be a start.

These guys are right. I just went through this and I needed a new degas bottle cap ($12) and a bottle of Ford Premium Gold coolant. It was seeping out of the degas bottle. Good luck.
