JACUSTOMER-xd8heojy- :

Mark :

Does the car drive ok?

JACUSTOMER-xd8heojy- :

Mark :

Does the noise change with engine speed?

JACUSTOMER-xd8heojy- :

i think so, but only had the car a day

Mark :

Do you hear the noise when driving?

JACUSTOMER-xd8heojy- :

not to sure only noticed earlier

JACUSTOMER-xd8heojy- :

yes you can hear the noise when driving

Mark :

Did you buy the car from a garage or as a private sale?

JACUSTOMER-xd8heojy- :

private but had a friend who knows about cars look it over

Mark :

And he never heard the noise?

JACUSTOMER-xd8heojy- :

no just started earlier when picking my daughter up

Mark :

I would advise you first check the engine oil level and coolant level before driving the car again.

JACUSTOMER-xd8heojy- :

have done . oil ok but water was lowish

Mark :

The noise could be gurgling in the coolant system.

Mark :

Did you top it up?

JACUSTOMER-xd8heojy- :

yes and if it gurgling is that ok

Mark :

If it is gurgling then you should try bleeding the system to make sure there is no air in the system.

Mark :

Does the heater get hot?

JACUSTOMER-xd8heojy- :

don't know not used it yet

JACUSTOMER-xd8heojy- :

and i have no idea how to bleed the system

Mark :

To bleed the system do the following.

Mark :

1. With a cold engine, remove the pressure cap.

Mark :

2. Top up the coolant to the level line.

Mark :

3. Squeeze/pump the main cooling hoses to remove any air.

Mark :

4. Start engine and allow to idle.

JACUSTOMER-xd8heojy- :

is that it?

Mark :

5. With engine running, continue to squeeze hoses and top up fluid as required.

Mark :

6. Check heater blows hot air as the engine warms up.

Mark :

7. Allow engine to cool and when it does, recheck fluid level.

Mark :

8. Top up as required and then refit pressure cap.

Mark :

Job done.

Mark :

Do you require anything else?

JACUSTOMER-xd8heojy- :
