Sounds like air in cooling system. Coolant comes through to back of glove box area for your heat supply.
Have you noticed less available heat than normal?

Check the coolant level in radiator, not just the top up bottle. DO THIS WHEN ENGINE IS COLD as hot system is under pressure.

Possibility of head gasket leak suppling gases to coolant system. IF so may be producing some persistant heavy white steamy exhaust, though not necessarily.

Topping up coolant will (should) make noise go away at least temporarily. You should look to see if any obvious leaks or wet spots at hose clamps and heater hose connections.

When engine is cold, open Radiator cap, look down (flash light helps?) to see fluid level, should be full to top.
If not, top up with correct coolant mix, leaving cap off, start motor and allow to idle till warm. If level drops top off some more. Watch the fluid as it flows past cap opening. a few bubbles for a few mins may be normal, but continous stream of bubbles indicate head gasket leak. Turn on the heat in car to full, (not the fan, just heat level) gently rev the engine and top up fluid at same time, (2 people) replace cap. Done. If there are no apparent problems.

If noise returns or does not go away, you'll need a professional inspection.

Knocking noise when in drive and stopped.


Hi,
1st thing - DO NOT DRIVE as you may be low/out of fluid.

Check both your automatic transmission fluid and your engine oil level. Both should be described in the owner's manual.

Use the .05. And if you didn't replace the plug wires there's a good chance that it separated it when you we're taking it off. You can replace the wires or get up ohmmeter and check the continuity of the wires

Why is there a gurgling sound upon starting and the antifreeze blows out


Check head gasket. Pull spark plugs and perform compression check? Check plugs for fouling. Check engine oil for water/antifreeze
Hope this helps?

Hi there; I've just started getting a "parking


The most basic check for this is - is your battery up to 100% efficiency. the handbrake module is notorious for faults with low voltage or voltage dips. Next is to check that the brake pads and cables are free and in good condition (pads not worn too far down) as these can cause fault indications. The fact that the park-brake still works and does not jam on or off would indicate that the major components are still working and may just need some attention and recalibrating. T o try a recalibration of the park brake - disconnect your battery for 10 Min's (make sure you have your radio code as this will be needed on reconnect) when battery reconnected follow the instructions on your driver display panel and see if this improves your problem. hope this helps - good luck.

Check the water coolant level because some of the hot water goes into the heater radiator behind the dash. Seems you have air in the system.
