    Your heater core could have a small leak that rusts up on itself and causes a temporary stoppage in the leak. . .

    It's probably your heater core, but it wouldn't hurt to do a good inspection under the hood for a leak.

    With the change in temperatures rubber hoses shrink and sometimes devolop leaks.

    I have checked and rechecked under the hood and everything looks good and tight no leaks as I had a waterpump installed a couple months ago and had it all checked then,except for the heatercore.. ;g

    Thanks for the suggestions..;c

    Ya'all have a nice thanksgiving..;)

    I would go get a preasure test done on the whole system to see where the leak is coming from,but like everyone else said,its probably your heater core.

    A telltale sign of a heater core leak is if there is any extra condensation build-up on the inside of your windshield.
    Older systems that are rejuvinated with a new pump also get fresh anti-freeze which flushes all of the bits'o'gunk that usually plug pinhole leaks in the radiator and/or heater core.
    Ughhh, heater core cheap. Labor not.~fnt~

    check your hoses,
    you could have a pin hole,
    this drove me nuts for about a week.
    good luck.
