Weird water sloshing noise

This is very odd and just started happening after my last oil change.

After I start my Jeep first thing in the morning and during the first two turns out of my apartment complex there is a really weird water sloshing noise that happens when I am making the first two turns. After those first two turns the noise is gone for the rest of the day, even after working for 8 hours the noise is not there.

The only thing I can think of is if the dealer put some watered down wiper fluid in and is mixed with the low temp fluid I already had in there and it is starting to slush up.

But I honestly have no idea. Can anyone else offer up any suggestions as to what this might be? It is still scheduled to be below freezing all this week so I won't be able to see if it happens when it is warmer for a while yet.

I have a 99 Grand Cherokee I6

Re: Weird water sloshing noise

Doesn' t it seem to come from the lower dash area? Sometimes air in the cooling system makes weird noises. Also possible to have water inside the HVAC housing due to a clogged ( frozen) drain. Why it would only happen the first turns is then strange though. Did you check the passengers side carpet if its wet ?

Re: Weird water sloshing noise

It does sound like it is more inside, so I could be possible it is the air in the cooling system.

I'm really confused on why it is only for the first 30 seconds as well

I have weathertech mats so i haven't noticed any extra water.

If it is one of these two situations, is it anything I need to worry about or take care of?

Re: Weird water sloshing noise

The heater is working properly? An air pocket in the heater will prevent it from transferring enough heat to the HVAC air. Other then that it should not do much harm. Was the coolant changed lately? An air pocket in a waterjacket however could create a local hotspot, which is not good for the engine.
If the problem is water in the HVAC housing, it could finally overflow into the cabin and get under the carpet, where it will stay for a very long time, with a change of corrosion of the floor.
