I have a problem with my S10 heater. I have no

I have a problem with my S10 heater. I have no heat, I "burp the cooling system and have great heat for a number of days and then loose heat again. Burp the system, I have great heat again for a few days and then go through the burping thing again. I don't believe that I would get any heat if the heaterf core was blocked.
