Question about 2006 Kia Spectra
I can hear water sloshing in the dashboard of my 2006 kia. Why? How can i fix this?
I work for kia. what you have to do is jack the front end of the vehicle 2-3 feet off of the ground. then take radiator cap off and fill radiator. let the vehicle get to opperating temp. then add coolant again as neccessary. ohh yea make sure heater is on full blast. that should fix concern

I had the same fluid dash area sound from KIA spectra 09, especially when making a turn. I tried various ideas from the web. Such as raising the front end and trying to top off radiator to checking for any drainage plug left from dealer prep. I finally realized that the reserve/overflow reservoir (on the right of the radiator) . It was below the low line. I filled it to between the low and the full lines. Have been driving it for a month now and no sloshing sounds from the dash are. Not sure if it is the fix you need but worked for me.

I have an 06' Spectra that does the same thing...I've had service on it and no one else hears it but me...It only has 35,000...Guess it's not hurting it...Done it since I got it...

I had the same problem. The dealership had to drain air out of the cooling system. It worked!
