OK, call me crazy, but when I turn a corner I can here liquid moving back and forth behind the dash. I don't see any leaks and no anti freeze smell so I don't think it's the heater core. Has anyone else noticed this issue or does anyone have a guess as to what it might be? Thanks.

Does the fish tank have a leak? :O

is there any chance condensation is pooling in your heater vents or firewall tray?

I wonder if it's behind the cowl...When water runs down the windshield by the wipers where does it go? Is it possible to remove the wipers, remove that plastic cowl and there's room under there?

Air bubble in the coolant? Not sure, just throwing that out there.

Not sure, I'll have to look around this weekend. It sounds like it's up high on the dash (like radio level). I was thinking along the same lines as Nate. It's a good amout of fluid from the sound of it.

If you have a sunroof, sometimes the channels get clogged and you hear a gurgling effect. Mine does it in heavy rain. You can hear it down the A pillar.

CHeck the conensate drain for the a/c evaporator. If you open the hood and look at the firewall not far to the right of the passenger-side strut tower you should find it.

Might need to use a pipe cleaner to clean it out. Might have to do that from under the car.

A hint this might be a problem - a humid or musty smell from the HVAC especially the dash vents.
