    Hi guys, I am getting a gurgling when i turn on the heater at the start. Do i need to bleed the system with the nose up high to get air out? I am not loosing coolant judging by the expansion tank but i do get a worrying whiff of coolant when i first turn on the heater but I have been ignoring...

    My 320D E90 has started to make a gurgling noise, I guess this is air in the system that wasn't bleed properly. Is it a case of un-doing the lowest bleed screw and filling up the expansion tank until fluid comes a out and re-tighten screws

From a recent thread on here i concluded that it is probably a power-wash of some kind given that...

    Had a little issue for some time on my car, which has now started to annoy me. At idle after the car has warmed up, I get a gurrgling tapping noise coming from the right side of the engine. The right side of the engine would be the side where the exhaust manifold is. The noise gets louder...

    Hi. When I turn it on it seems to make a rather annoying and loud gurgling or whining sound. Sometimes it sounds like a pigeon is stuck in there! It also seems to pump air out at the complete wrong speed. Even if I have it on really low it will pump air out at maximum speed but the temparature...
