You need to locate the source of the noise. It could be from the A/C system.

You would need locate the source of the noise. A rubber hose as stethoscope might be able to help you locate it. If it is anything near the cooling coil, that would most likely be the A/C system.

Hi Jasomian,

Can yuo please clarify your query. Which one is it from the below
(1) getting the bubbling sounds after the car is shut down (after use)
(2) getting the bubbling sounds after couple of hours after shut down
(3) getting the bubbling sounds just when you start

If its the 1st one I have the same problem for my 2001 Chrysler Neon 2001 SE (160,000 Km). Its the coolant sound.

But if its the 2nd or the 3rd I would recommend to check it with a car radiator specialist (a mechanic) to prevent any major damage.
Hope this helps.
