Liquid-Flowing Noise When gas is pressed.

I recently (about 2-4 months ago) had a failed water pump replaced now about 4 months later i hear some weird liquid flowing noise when i rev up the engine and even while i'm driving. it does it with the heater on, and when the heaters off too. it does it when the engines cold or hot. what could this be?

THIS SOUNDS LIKE THE COOLING SYSTEM HAS AIR TRAPPED IN IT, TO PURGE THE AIR JACK THE FRONT OF THE CAR UP AS HIGH AS POSS, THEN FILL THE COOLANT BOTTLE UP AND RUN ENGINE UNTIL IT IS HOT, TURN IT OFF AND RUN COLD HOSE WATER ON THE RADIATOR, THIS WILL PURGE THE AIR (IF ANY) OUT OF THE SYSTEM, RECHECK THE COOLANT BOTTLE LEVEL..

Losing water causing overheating


My first question is make model and year.
Second, are you saying the engine is boiling over into the overflow tank and onto the ground ? Is the tank about half full when the engine is cold ?
Have you run the engine with the thermostat removed to test ?
Usually when you can hear the coolant moving around, you have air in the system and it is not full of liquid coolant.

if your sure the cooling system is full than i wouldn't be surprised if you had a head gasket that has failed.

This would explain the water noise, and overheating.

With the engine cold remove the radiator cap, start the vehicle and let it idle. continue to monitor the coolant level in the radiator. top it off if it gets low. If you see a constant perculation of air bubbles coming out of the radiator than the head gasket is bad.

Sometimes you can also smell the radiator or the overflow. If it smells like exhaust than the head gasket is leaking.

ck for excessive play in the electric cooling fan blades - theses usually only come on when the car is hot or ac is used. You can also check this by locating the fan relay(s) and removing them when you hear the noise.

i would expect that the water pump has failed and would take a look closer in the morning and make sure nothing else has cracked, i expect the pump housing has but make sure its not a crack in the block or anything.
