Bubbling sound in the rear trunk

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

i recently noticed a strange sound when i opened my rear trunk to take out my computer bag. it sounds like something is boiling..........like a bubbling sound when you boil water. as i listen closely i noticed its coming from the oil cap. the sound is louder if i remove the oil cap. the car drives fine and engine is not over heating. i had the AOS replaced some 20k miles ago. car has about 104k now. i brought the car to the mechanic and he has no clue on what could have caused it. its only making that noise when the car is hot, after driving for a long time. does anyone know what's going on? i just want to make sure this is not something big waiting to happen. thanks

by the way, the engine is off

Replace the coolant cap. It has been updated several times over the years.

the sound is coming from the engine oil cap and engine itself not the coolant area. as i listen closely its almost like a high pitch vacuum sound........

Replace the coolant cap. It has been updated several times over the years.

If the noise is actually caused by a strong vacuum and the oil cap is difficult to remove with the engine running, there's a good chance that your AOS is failing.

A faulty AOS is also usually accompanied by exhaust smoke on startup.,

The coolant temp rises after you shut off the engine which can overcome a weak pressure valve in the coolant cap. It's cheap/easy to replace to see if that cures the fault.

If your cap ends in 01, It should be replaced. I replaced mine last summer and I believe they end in 04 now.

i just checked the coolant cap and sure it was ending in 01......i will go pick one up and see if that fix the problem. i don't think and hopefully not another AOS issue since i had already replaced it once.

opened oil cap with engine running............there's some suction but not difficult to open. i think my replaced AOS is still holding ok. now all i have to do is to pick up a new coolant cap and hopefully its that easy.
