Noise From Center Dash?


 Share

Recommended Posts

I own an IS200 and for the past couple of weeks I have had a strange noise coming from what sounds like the centre dash, around the top air vents and the AC and temp control ect. It only seems to happen when I press the accelerator and it sounds a bit like a rattle, but not a metallic or plastic rattle and it’s not very loud as you can just make it out over the sound of the radio. It sounds like it could be water getting sucked (very hard to explain the type of noise, but that’s what I think of when I hear it). I did turn off all the heating and fan and AC thing, and then the rattle did disappear not straight away, but once I turned it on again after about 5mins it reappeared.

Has anyone come across this before or something similar? As I haven’t a clue what’s making it. Any help would be appreciated.

Have you enough coolant in your top-up tank. Think i read somewhere that if you havn't enough coolant in your top-up tank ( at the back of your radiator you'll see a black plastis tank with level window) you get this noise.

Hope this helps.
