    my car does the same thing and it is just the coolant flowing from the over flow container to the radiator. don't know if that is what you are hearing but that has been my experience with the noise

    Sounds like you have air in your cooling system. With your engine cool make sure to top off the overflow bottle. Then remove the actual radiator cap. Top that off if it's not already. Now start the engine with the cap off. Wait several minutes for it to warm up (turn on your A/C to load the engine down to speed things up). You'll see the coolant raise very slightly, then suck itself into the radiator, then start to overflow (as the thermostat is opening). When it starts to overflow, tightly put the cap back on. You now should not have any air. Make sure the overflow bottle is at it's max and you're done.

    It's probably your D35 screaming for mercy!!!
    If everybody grows up with high self-esteem, who is going to dance in our strip clubs?
    What's going to happen to our porno industry?
    These women don't just grown on trees.
    It takes lots of drunk dads missing dance recitals before you decide to blow a goat on the internet for fifty bucks.

    +1. Or it could be your fluid got low and the closed loop systems now a days don't always allow radiator fluid to flow properly into the heater when refilling, so try turning your heater on full blast, waiting till it warms up and filling up the reservoir.

    I replaced the fluid , but now it won't cool down as its a delema right now because I'm not a home and I need to get to my job! I let all the old fluid drain out let it sit for 10 mins and then idol for another what did I do wrong?

    Those closed loop systems can be a pita to fill properly.
