Question about 1999 Saturn SL

Water Sloshing Sound

I have a 1999 SL2 and it make a sound like water sloshing sometimes when I take off from a stop light. I have also had my water level light come on (periodically) and the water level is fine. I havn't overheated and it runs great but I am worried there is a problem waiting to happen. I have had the car for several years and never had to put water in it. Could it be air or the water pump?

I have a 2000 jeep grand cherokee Laredo 4.0 liter, I hear a the sloshing sound of water when I turn corners or go up hill and accelerate at the same time. I have replaced the thermostat, both heater


First, open each door and give it a shake back and forth and see if you hear water sloshing. If so, check the bottom of your door. The drain holes may be plugged and not allowing water out. I have that same problem and after a big rain I check for sloshing.

Hear water sloshing around behind


is your spare tyre located under the trunk carpet ? if so i expect that the tyre well is filled with water , has the accident damage been repaired yet ? if not then thats how water is getting in so get the repair done , if has been repaired take back to the repairer , the usual place after a repair to leak is where the rear bumper/fender is bolted to the body , these bolts need sealing as they are when vehicle is manufactured

Gurgling sound dash


Depends.
It could be water trapped inside the heater box, or air in the cooling system. If the sound happens when you take off from a stop, it could be low on coolant. If it happens when you are making a turn, it could be water in the heater box. The drain could be plugged up.

2008 spectra, sounds like water in dash


Check your water / coolant level for your motor. sometimes if it is low the wate pump will push air into your heater coil macking it sould like water running. So check the level and bleed the collant system to help get the air out.

I have a 1998 Jeep Gran Cherokee, that while running, I hear water sloshing around when I turn the heater fan on. I don't see any leaks, carpets are all dry, no coolant leaks, etc. Ideas what it could...


It's air in your heater core. With truck running and radiator cap off, top off radiator with coolant. My take 10-15 mins but that will help bleed air from system.

I hear water sloshing around behind the glove box area. I hear it slosh like its cycling when I accelerate? I think I have a gasket leak in the heat maybe, but I have not seen any white smoke? The truck...


Sounds like the sloshing noise is water in the a/c-heater box. The drain is probably plugged. I don't think the sloshing noise is causing the ragged running problem.
