Heres what you need to do to solve this its simple enough get a buddy for the day with the motor cool and off open the radiator cap have your friend start the truck and have him rev it up to about 2200 rpms and hold it there you should notice that the coolant level has now dropped top off coolant as needed replace radiator cap you may have to do this two or three times but it should puge out the air in the system leaving you with no more gurgaling thank you and i hope this helps

From take off some times traction active light comes on and the vehicle will not accelerate. And sounds like gurgling water behind dash upper left.

Check tread on tires. Gurgling usually due to air in coolant passages. Park uphill and top off coolant with engine running.

I have Chevy epica 2009 running 60 k km While accelerating a gurgle sound comes out from the beside a high engine noise over the speed of 80 and I sense low acceleration in general

That noise is associated with coolant. Check your level. Low? look for leaks. Some times it is just a water/coolant trail, because it is a small leak. It evaporates.

My 2005 Grand Prix makes gurgle noise from dash area

Your heater core is leaking its located under the glove box. If you hear it soon you will have a small wet spot. It probably just losing air for now but it sounds like a water bottle gurgling. Better to get it taken in before it goes out completely when you need it.

I get a gurgling sound coming from behind the dash

Does the sound stop after a minute or two? IF so, this is normal. When the a/c is working, there is high pressure on one side of the expansion valve, and low pressure on the other. When you turn the a/c off, the pressures equalize. That's the noise you are hearing.

Hear a gurgaling noise from the lower front passenger area when I first start moving forward

Could be several things, coolant in the heater core or water moving around in the evaporator case. Is the coolant level full and does water come out the drain tube of the evaporator on the ground when the A/C is running. Those are two things I'd check first.

2005 Kia Sorento gurgling noise behind dash

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.

Gurgle sound under driver side dash

It sounds like you may have a small air leak in your cooling system that is trapping air, and you can hear it gurgling through your heater core. I would keep an eye on your coolant level, and also you can rent a pressure tester from Auto Zone that you can hook up to your overflow tank and test your system for leaks. Most likely you will be able to tell where its leaking from, or see if its holding pressure like it's supposed to. Just follow the procedure closely and don't overpressurize the system.
