    Angry here we go again

    i have an 02 ws6, only mod is LM1, 105k miles on it, recently swapped the water pump and radiator (radiator is for a v6 bird tho)..... today i was driving around and turned and started hearing whaling noises, first thought was power steering is low, checked it, and nope pretty full, heard a very loud bubbling from the radiator, like when water is boiling only louder, temp is normal, but the noise consists, any ideas? thanks!

    Pressure test the system to ensure its sealed, Also pressure check the Cap, if its boiling over then the cap isnt holding pressure. Did you get all the air out of the system?

    Sounds like it's time to try to burp the cooling system.
