I filled my radiator with antifreeze/ water this morning and when I got to work and shut it off it made this bubbling/ gurgling sound. It's been making this sound for about 2 days.

Do you
have the same problem?

Did that and when I went to lunch and came back all the fluid is gone. The cap is on correctly and the fluid didn't spill from the top but there is fluid under the car? Any ideas?

This noise is coming from where the leak is at. Fill up the radiator with water and cap. Drive around the block. Then open the hood and look for a leak. Also look under the car. This should be easy to find if its leaking that bad. If you have a empty radiator u have a leak. Fill it with water until u find the leak. Its a lot better for the envirment. Then u can drain it and put coolant back in. Ty for using 2carpros

Hi, my PT Cruiser gurgled and bubbled from under the hood, when I stopped. Smoke/steam came from under the bonnet/hood.
Two mechanics said it was 'Head Gasket' needed changing.
Quoted 800 to 1200.
They said nothing about Hoses, Radiators etc,
I don't have THAT sort of money.?
