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

It sounds like you may have a blocked drain in the evaporator box. This is where the heater core and evaporator are located.
If you look under the vehicle about where the heater is located, you should see a small tube sticking down ( plastic or rubber ) this should be he drain.
You can squeese the tube open and see if it will drain, If not it may be clogged up with dirt and debris that may require the box to be removed and cleaned.
Check the air inlet, usually located in front of the windsheild, just under the wipers for debris. Keep this area clear. If it has a lot of leaves or other things around it, it can cause water to build up and flood the evaporator box, as well as get down inside.
You may need to take this to a shop that can put it on a lift and get at the drain from the underside, they may be able to clear it without too much troble

The 405 is renowned for having the heater matrix go bad and often it springs a leak woth an associated slooshing sound. Heater matrix is like a mini radiator which is fed by water from the engine and is located behind the dash.
It is located on the lower left hand side of the dashboard. If you look under the glove box and in towards the direction of the centre of the car you will just about see it. Check the area around passenger floor and closest to the centre console for any dampness on the carpet or signs of leaking. If this is evident you have found your problem.
One solution is replacement from breakers though companies can be found who specialise in radiator repair and if you can find one in your area this is an even better solution.
Slooshing water noise like you describe is sometimes associated with impending head gasket failure but I would check your carpets first for dampness and eliminate the heater matrix first owing to it being a known failure point on the 405.
Hope this helps.

Popular question. It's hidden unlike any other car. Outlet is behind driver side brake lines 1/2 way up in a frame weldment bracket hole. Impossible to get to. My dealer drilled a hole, inside driverside airdistribution housing (remove panel next to your accelerator leg) and blew air in it. Lasted 5 min. and plugged again. I found lowest point in righthand corner of housing. You can see molded round shape in housing that leads into firewall. Used hole drilled in line towards back of housing and ran a stiff wire down molded round shape. It went past firewall, felt it unclog some goo, and massive amount of water came out. Sill working.

your heater core is partially plugged causing water slush, if you have checked your drain plug on the evaporator heater case outlet and it is not restricted, then that is a major repair.
