Learn from my stupid mistake. With the temperature control turned to the hottest setting possible, my blower would push hot air in positions 1, 2, and 3 when driving. When turned to 4, or when idling, regardless of blower setting, it would blow cold air. Such weird symptoms.

Turns out I was very low on coolant. I noticed that last week when I changed my oil, but since it wasn't overheating, it was on my to-do list, but not a high priority. It took over two quarts of coolant when I filled tonight. Tested it immediately thereafter, and hot air blows regardless of blower setting or driving or idling.

Posting in case anyone runs into a similar problem.

Now you need to find the coolant leak,most likely a cracked radiator side tank(drivers side behind rubber flap is most common area).

You just don't loose coolant for no reason since '02-'06 KJ's use a 100% sealed system.

I have not noticed any leaks, but interestingly enough, I got my oil analysis back today, and they found a high sodium content. They suspect this is due to coolant leak in the engine since Mobil1 doesn't use sodium as an additive.
