    The sound of flowing water coming off idle

    OK, so this is weird.

    When I'm about to pull away from a stop light, and I first apply some gas, as the engine begins to rev, I can hear the sound of flowing water through the engine bay area.

    This doesn't happen if it only reaches idle for a moment... it's when it's been idling for some time (lets call it 15-20 secs).

    I haven't checked, but one guess is that my radiator fluid is low, so the whole system isn't completely full...?

    thats very odd. the radiator system is a pressurized system, so even if the fluid is low, there would not really be any sloshing going on that one would be able to hear. a lot of other things can sound like fluid though, but i really dont even know where to start.

    Lovely... another of the joys of buying a car cheap enough that I can afford to pay cash....

    repeating over and over: "no payment is a good thing, no payment is a good thing, no payment....."
