Well my drivers heat is still cold...so it must be the air mix actuator on the drivers side...I was hoping fixing the coolant t-stat would fix the heat...but no such luck...the passenger side is hot and good...but the drivers air is still cold....I need to find that air mix actuator on the drivers side and move it manually to hot to see if it works...Or like my mechanic said it could be the heater core is clogged and a coolant flush could fix it..what do you all think?

If you have heat on the passenger side and not the drivers side. the heater core is not clogged, it'* the actuator for the drivers side.

how much of a pain is it to replace the actuator? Do I need to remove the entire dash to change it? If so this will be a mechanic repair...I need to make sure by moving it to heat manually to see if I get heat...its under the hush gaurd on the right side of the steering column from what I hear..I will attempt this tomorrow.

I can't seem to find an "air mix actuator" from autozone or orieleys...seems all they carry is a door blend mix actuator, which is not what I need right. Where would I go about finding this elusive air mix actuator for the drivers side? Also do I need to take the entire dash out to change it? Let me know.

This is all I could find at orieleys
