Recently it got cooler down here in TX and when i turned on my heater up all the way with full blast, nothing but cool air was blowing out. Yes, the engine temperature was in operating range between C and H. Im thinking thats the result from my thermostat possibly being stuck closed for whatever reason. Luckily, its hot during the day so i run the AC most of the time but just wanted to know due to my next problem; for some reason, the trans. temp. needle stays near the "C" range. I drive, say 20 miles with the engine hot but the needle only goes up 1/4 of the way and stays there instead of normally being in the center of C and H like usual. The two issues seem connected since it sounds like a problem that affects proper cooling and heating of the climate control and transmission. Anybody have suggestions???

Is your upper radiator hose hot? If it's hot, the thermostat is not stuck closed.
