Yes, thumping is something I also hear sometimes.

Was your carpet wet? Where are these plugs located (can you be more specific)?

Re: Sloshing sound from under the car

i don't believe the carpet was wet, had to get to work before i could check further. as for the body plugs, there were 2 rubber circle grommet type plugs in the passenger side floor pan when looking from under vehicle.

Thanks for your response. Did these plugs require any special instruments to open/close? Are there similar plugs under the driver seat or rear seat area?

Re: Sloshing sound from under the car

I don't yet know if I have water under the floor but I don't have skid plates. In any case I doubt skid plates would affect this.

I wonder if you had skid plates,if you could still access these plugs to release that water.

Re: Sloshing sound from under the car

I had a half tank today and heard sloshing, I pulled the drain plugs from under the pax side of vehicle and tried parking on various angles to hopefully drain any water stuck in there. I got less than an ounce. So that is not always the issue. Took it to gas station filled up until pump auto shutoff and then kept filling until it was right up to the fill port opening pretty much, basically until I could see the fuel. No more sloshing.

Re: Sloshing sound from under the car

Besides the few with the water problems. The sloshing sound will be the gas tank. The tank is split into two sections and you will hear gas slushing from one side to the other.

Also the rubber grommets in question are for the battery compartment under the passenger seat, those are not covered by a skid plate. There should definitely be no water in there. The drivers side is covered by a skid plate and not accessible without removing it.
