View Full Version : Steering Rack gurgling?

06-02-2005, 09:46 PM

Sometimes when we start the car in the morning(summer or winter) and just start pulling away from the curb, we hear a liquid gurgling/bubbling sound from the engine bay. And it increases as you press the pedal harder. Goes away after a minute or two.

The LIM has been replaced and there aren't any leaks and I believe the coolant properly bled.

I'm taking a guess it might be an internal leak in the steering rack or air in teh PS lines. (No apparent leaks from any PS lines, but it seaps from under the PS cap and feels pressurized)

Any experience?

I would suspect air in the coolant system.
