Hey guys, I have a 2000 SE 2.4, just had the water pump and upper and lower hoses replaced, along with the coolant flushed. For about a year and a half after I turn the car off, there is a pretty quiet gurgling noise coming from behind the dash. It only goes on for about 30 seconds and then stops. It has never done it while the car is running. I figured this work would have eliminated the noise but it is still doing it, any ideas??

My 3.4 does it as well.

Same here.

I was told by someone that it's the heater core, and not to worry about it.

It's been doing it since it was new, and no problem (with heater) yet.

I think it is just the sound off your oil bubbling or coolant flowing through your car.... I get that sometimes as well, but mainly when i run my car hard..no worries

It's normal, don't worry about it.

I feel you. I just spent $1740 to fix the LIM along with a few other things.

Its your coolent still flowing through the system. Once you shut off your engine the coolent is still flowing. KInda like when you stir your coffee with a spoon and when you take your spoon out your coffee is still "swirling". Make sense? Dont know how to explain it with words.
