SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: there is water sloshing sound from behind the dash

This could be either your AC drain blocked up or you heater core has an air lock, in which case your would have no or reduced heat from your heater.

Gurgling sound dash

It could be water trapped inside the heater box, or air in the cooling system. If the sound happens when you take off from a stop, it could be low on coolant. If it happens when you are making a turn, it could be water in the heater box. The drain could be plugged up.

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.

ac units are very well sealed and any water or liquid should normally be drained out of a tube located outside of firewall make sure that drain is cleared,heater core can also make this noise especially when engine coolant is low.

I'm loosing coolant and it sounds like it's building up under the dash. I can here it moving around when I accelerate.????

if it is sloshing around in the heater box, you need to get the drain hose cleaned out. generally a long pipe cleaner inserted into the drain, which hole should be found on the firewall under the heater hoses in the engine bay. however it is leaking so you are going to need to get in there and put a new core in it. get a repair manual or take a look on youtube for a video of someone doing this. involved procedure and you may want to pay someone who does it frequently, like a radiator and A/C shop.

Chevy truck 96 cheyenne- I hear what sounds like water gushing when I press on the accelerator. The sound is located behind the center of the dashboard. Any ideas on what it could be?

I think you have air in your cooling system.It will gurgle and sound like sloshing when you step on the gas.check the coolant jug,make sure you have enough Anti-freeze.If the jug is overfilled it can make a sloshing sound also.If you very low,look at the front of the intake where it meets the heads.I've done a few sets of intake gaskets on this engine. Good luck

Brake light flickers while driving down the road.

Check the brake fluid. It may be just low enough to occasionally turn the light on as you hit bumps and it sloshes a little. Add a little brake fluid to the reservoir and check the brake pads all around.
