Might be some water inside of the air/heater box, or it could be some air in the cooling system and you are hearing water in the heater core.

Buick Park Avenue 1999. Little over 100k miles and started to hear a water sloshing sound from the dash. Is this a coolant system broblem 'couse it usually sloshes during the acceleration?


That is an interesting question. I experienced this once with a 1995 Taurus and it would sound like the ocean behind the dash on turns. It was a leaking radiator that caused air to get in the system as it leaked. I have also seen the drain plugs clogged for the air box during the summer that collected water due to condensation from the evaporator.

Check the coolant reservoir to see if it is at the correct level and also make sure the air box drain(s) is clear of debris. Although, if the air box is that full with liquid, it usually starts to poor out on the passenger floor so that would give you a better idea of what is happening if that is the case. I hope this gives you some Ideas of how to approach the problem.

I have a 2003 Buick LeSabre Ltd. with 165,000 miles. When I turn in one direction, it sounds like water or sand sloshing or flowing to one side of the car in the dash. It's quiet when I turn in the other...


Two possibilties. The A/C evaporator has a drain that might be plugged or hose came off. Second is the heater core might be leaking at the hose connections or internally.

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.

My passenger side floor is saturated with water when it rains. When I make right turn I hear what seems like water sloshing.


Hello,
If you can smell a little bit of a sweet smell from the water on the passenger side floor, or if it has an oily film to it, you may have a leaking heater core.

They usually leak on the passenger side floor, and that might explain why you hear water sloshing around.

If you can run the engine for about 5 minutes and then turn your heater on. Look under the dash in the area where the dash meets the floor board and see if you can see anything leaking.

I hope this helps you.

2004 LeSabre Limited - Have a noise that sounds like water sloshing under the dash when making turns or sudden stops. Mechanic checked the A/C drain and claims it is clear. Any ideas?


Its the heater core. There is air in it allowing the coolant to splash inside it. You should bleed the cooling system. Its good to flush it out completely and refill it correctly.

Where is the fuel filter located on 98 Foed Escort? Where is the drain hole located because I'm getting water on the inside of the car from under the dashboard?


you can find fuel filters near fuel tank under car or close to the carberator under bonnet. Sometimes the easy way to find is to start where fuel enters engine and carefully follow it backwards.Hope this helps.Good luck.
