Hello, my name is***** and thanks for your question.

This is caused by air pockets in the cooling system. Air pockets are caused by coolant loss resulting in air voids in the cooling system. As the air pockets travel through the heater core, a gurgling or moving water sound can be heard. Suspect either very slow coolant loss from leaking or burning coolant, or combustion gases in the cooling system. Usually to find the source, a long term pressure test on the cooling system is performed (6-8 hours) with visual leak inspection. If those tests pass then the cooling system can be checked for combustion gases with a block tester.

If you are satisfied with your answer, please take a moment to rate my service before you go. Experts are not compensated without a positive rating. Providing a rating does not close the question, you can reply or ask additional questions without incurring further charges. Rating my answer positive charges your account the full question value and credits me. Submitting for a refund removes the credit from my account and makes me donate my time and experience for free, which is not my intention. Please only rate positive if you are satisfied and intend on paying for the services you agreed to. Thanks!

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
