So I did some searching around the forums and havnt found what Im looking for so here is my issue. When I start the my jeep (2003 TJ) in the mornings, down around the passenger side floorboard it sounds like a growling/sucking/blowing noise. It seems like it may only be doing it when I first start up in the morning and only recently. It has been fairly cold lately, not sure if that has anything to do with it. I have only just noticed it recently and I thought if anyone knew what it was, it would be a fellow wrangler owner. Any thoughts??
The three most common expressions (or famous last words) in aviation are:
- "Why is it doing that?",
- "Where are we?"
- and "Oh Sh!t!"
Isn't the heater core right behind the dash on the passenger side? If you get air in your collant system it makes a noise similar to the one your describeing.
I was thinking the same thing....which is why I never really worried about it. The sound that mine makes is identical to the sound my air conditioner makes when I shut it off....somewhat like a hissing sound.
You definatly don't want air in the system that's for sure. It coud cause you engine to overheat and that could cause even more problems, expensive problems
Dammit! Just when I thought I was in the clear....I'll have to check it out as well then. I'm gonna be optimistic about this situation since I've had my Rubicon for a year now and no overheating engine. I've been hearing that noise only during cold mornings since I purchased it. I guess I'll just have to wait and see.....
