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

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~
