2005 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Q&A
2005 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Question: Why does my "Hot Engine Coolant" red warning light come on occasionally?
Every time I start the car the sound of liquid rushing or gurgling comes from underneath the center of the dashboard. This also occurs every time I depress the accelerator.Again,occasionally,the "Hot Engine Coolant" light comes on when the temperature gauge indicator goes all the way up to the maximum temperature. - rh65
If you hear a gurgling sound either the cooling system has air in it (due to a leak or possible head gasket sealing issue) or there is air trapped in the cooling system.I t certainly needs to be looked at as over looking this issue may result in serious and expensive engine damage. - patrick mannion
