our well used 278k miles avalon has gurgling noise from what sounds like the top side of the engine. This is our son's college car, the noise is becoming more pronounced the last 6 months. for years it had a smooth, very quite purr with a very faint tapping lifter noise. the timing belt is near the end of itts life mileage wise and the the water pump has never needed replacement (yet).
