what does this noise indicate??

2000 Silverado, for the first few minutes that truck is running, but not all of the time, there is a water sound coming from what appears to be behind the dashboard. located toward the center. I don't know weather to call it a sloshing or gurgling sound. neither are exactly accurate but I can't come up with a better word. I am suspecting this has something to do with the heater core. There is no apparent leakage into the inside of the truck. At least not that I have found. Any guesses as to what I might be looking at? thanks.

Floor wet??? It could be condensate water that is not draining from the A/C coils. The drain tube often gets plugged by spiders. Or it could just water circulating in the heater core, as you suggest.

I have not found any spot on the floor where the carpet is wet.

Probably water circulating as Bill suggests. If you have an air bubble in the system it is often noticable as a gurgling in the dash.

Sorry but had to laugh I allways had that noise in my '67 Skylark. ( I loved that car)

I guess GM didn't think it was worth resolving.

It's not a sign of trouble at least in my '67 but not sure about a modern vehicle.
