View Full Version : Gurgle sound in dash

I have been meaning to ask this for sometime...

In my 00GAGT - when I have been driving for sometime...and then shut down (like in the garage) I hear a gurgle/boily sound coming from inside the dash.

My guess is that its the heater core and the coolant <?> ...

The car never over heats (200F) and runs fine and the coolant level is fine too.

Anyone else notice this and if there anything to do about it or just live with it?

Thanks :)

Yeah its just the sound of your coolant.

10-25-2005, 04:13 AM just seems odd. I never had a vehicle do that.

Speaking of which...anyone have anythoughts on when to replace/flush this 100,000 mile coolant?

I at at 5yrs and 40K miles....

Dealer said not to wait until 100K, but perhaps at 50K.

OTOH, I dont ever go to the dealer...I think its been 4yrs since I went...

I did mine at 45K. I dont know if i needed to but i did just to make myself feel better.
Thats weird becuase all my vehicles you could hear the coolant after shutting down.

ok cool. Perhaps in the spring I will do that :)

I have always had foreign cars/trucks....and this will be my last American car....but I just paid it off after 5yrs of payments and I am not going to let it go that easy...I wanted to give it to my daughter, but she just got herself a 03 Sunfire.

As usual, daughter has a newer car than daddy...:hammer:
