Thanks! Just to update, I pulled the blend door actuator and it wasn't turning. Replaced and now getting heat. The engine light persisted after replacing gas cap buy was just a blown fuse, replaced and that's good. Temp gauge now is doing a weird thing. If looked at like a clock, c is at 10 and h is at 2. For me the needle when the car is off is at 6 and operating puts it at the 8 position. Since the actuator change, ac now gets cool in 10 minutes or so after a cold start. Would both those still indicate a thermostat issue?
