    I had the wife start the truck and it's not the battery , but instead it sounds like it's coming from the firewall, maybe the heater core, sounds like it's bubbling almost..... /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif










    Is it just venting gasses, it was deader than dead and I charged it and now after I shut the engine down, I can hear it. I'm assuming it's doing it the hole time it's running. I've only ran it around the block and started it twice for a second after that to make sure it held a charge. Do you guys think it will eventually stabilize and stop burping or is it something else??? /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    How dangerous is it?? should I go put the tunes and lights on for awhile or just run it and not worry about it, I don't think I overcharged it and if I did , not that much...

    How bad is it burping? The battery on my 84 gurgles from time to time after I shut the engine off and I've had that battery for 6 years now.

    Oops, missed the edit. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    Sounds like you've got some air trapped in your heater core.
