Hello and welcome to Just Answer!

 

Does your temperature gauge go over to hot?

 

Do your electric rad fans work when the engine is getting hot?

 

What model of car is this?

Did you just get this car or have you had it for more than a year?

 

If you had it more than a year has it always done this or just started?

 

Does it do it if the a/c is off and not on defrost?

Expert:  Richard replied 4 years ago.

Sorry I haven't had time to get back to you sooner. I am a full time tech during the day and do this after hours.

 

I assume you coolant is full, is that correct?

 

The coolant shouldn't be boiling in your radiator if the coolant is full, the rad cap is holding pressure and the engine isn't overheating.

 

Are you positive that is where the noise is coming from?

 

Was the coolant low and maybe you have an air lock in your cooling system?

 

I wish I give you an answer, but when I can't be there to hear the noise and check the system it is very difficult for me and that is why I have to ask these questions.
