My friend owns a 95TT Automatic....When she steps on the accelerator, a loud water gushing sound comes from the dash.
It sounds like water is being sloshed around inside the car...
Her car runs perfect, no problems at all, but she is worried on what could be causing that sound. I checked her floormats and there is no water inside the car... The only other suggestion that I have is that it might be her heater core.

If anyone knows what this is please let me know!

Thanks,

Iv'e heard the same sounds in the past in my car but it only happened when I turned on my A/C. I don't think it's anything bad just something to do with the A/C unit. It sounds wierd doesn't it. :)

Sounds like when the coolant system was last fushed the didn't get all the air out. Reflush/fill the system. There is air trapped in the heater core is what it sounds like to me.

gurgling sound

I didnt think about that, I will flush her coolant system and see if we can get the air out. I appreciate the information.

Thanks,

Try parking the car on a slope nose up with rad cap removed (make sure the car is cold enough to remove the rad cap first of course). Start the engine and turn the heater on you should find that the air bubbles will circulate the system and be released at the now highest point in the system, the rad.

If you look to the rear of the engine cover there is a medium sized black rubber hose. When the car is parked on a level surface this hose is higher than the radiator and the trapped air is unable to escape.

Back in the day my car had that problem. I complained to the dealership and they were never able to find it.

Of course it went away once I flushed the coolent.

You guys came up with the solution in no time! Its really amazing how stupid most toyota dealerships are.

I had this SAME exact problem about a year ago. It went on for a while until one day my car overheated. I had NO coolant at all. My radiator was screwed, I had a leak somewhere. Odds are you probably have a leak too. Although it may just be trapped air sloshing around.

I had the same problem. I thought it might be a bad heat core or blown head gasket. I had my 30K checkup and they did my coolant at the time. No more noise for over a year! It probably just air in the cooling system or isn't there a drain in the ac system for condensation? Maybe its partially clogged.

I have read recently (can't remember where) that this gurgling sound may becaused by the IAC reed valve. In stock sequential turbo operation, the IAC valve opens when the 2nd turbo kicks in. A marginal reed valve will make noises such as we've heard.

It has happened to me 2 or 3 times but lately it hasn't happened.
