So that everyone can understand the circumstances, it was 2 degrees over night and 20 degrees when I got into my car and started it just a little while ago. After letting it sit and get oil flowing through the engine 6-7 minutes, I put it in gear and start down the road at a blistering speed of 28-30 MPH. (I don't hot rod my DD) After driving 5 miles or so, the heat gauge begins to move. I see this and turn the fan nob just a little, just enough to have the fan on, (very low) after making sure I'm not going to run into anyone, I look down where the heat should be coming out, and the air is stone cold. By now the car is up to 55 and has been for a few miles and the heat gauge has now moved to a point to where I should have heat. Now I'm thinking, Oh crap, I've got a stopped up heater core, RIGHT!!?? 23 miles and no heat all the way. I get to where I'm going, the temp gauge is in the right spot and still no heat. I changed the temp all the way up, then all the way down, then up once more and no heat,

, I'm PO'ed can ya tell? So, I go into the store and get supplies before the snow storm hits. I'm there maybe 30 minutes, come out, get in the car, hit the ignition, and WTF, now I got heat.
Anyone got a clue as to whats going on there? The coolant is at the proper level. It got flushed back in early Nov, with new coolant. Even the core was flushed. No head gasket leaks that I can tell, and, she doesn't use or burn oil. She is a good girl, and behaves most of the time, but now I'm scratching my head
wondering WTH is going on.
Thanks for any help in advance
