    My heater only blows warm air,not hot.

    My air conditioner works perfectly fine, the engine temp gauge is at normal. My check engine light has been on for some time now, but the auto shop said it was my emissions, which I can't afford to take care of right now.Have to do that at the end of the year when I have to smog it.I just need to make sure this warm air thing isn't something critical that will harm my engine if I continue to drive it without fixing this warm, not hot air issue.Summer coming up,so air conditioner all I need.

    Often the radiator is low on coolant or water.

    I would check out the thermostat and as Phoenix says check the radiator maybe all it needs is a flush.   As long as the temp gauge is at normal, your engine should be fine.  My blazer did this for the last two winters the first winter was able to have heat in the car but when it started blowing cold air the next winter I decided to live with it since I was planning on getting something newer-so I kept a portable heater which I plugged into my cigarette lighter and kept warm that way.
