Funny sound coming out of my dash...

I have a water gurggling sound coming out of my dash after my car has been sitting for more than an hour. It sounds like water being transfered from on compartment to another.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

The only possible source of the sound would be the coolant moving inside the heater core inside your dash. You may want to check the level of the water/coolant in the radiator & the coolant reservoir. Likewise to check would be the connection points leading to the heater core on the firewall in the engine compartment.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Would the water pump leak even when the car has been sitting for 9 hours? I can go to work, and when I come out, I can see the leak. Would that be the water pump?

yes, water pump could link even if it just sitting there for hours. But i would rather not jump into that conclusion, other causes of water leak could be just broken radiator hose and other water connections that simply needs retightening or replacement. check on this first before going to your water pump
