Default Front end fluid swishing sound?

13 Ram 1500 sport CC 6 speed 3.92 7000kms

I was driving very slow down an icy bumpy road today (under 10km/hr) and I could hear what I thought was fluids swishing back and forth from the front end??? Is this normal to hear that??? Windshield washer fluid reservoir?

Thanks

fill the windshield washer fluid all the way to the top - if you still hear swishing, then you can rule that out.

Only time I've seen this occur is if air pockets get into the cooling system...radiator, heater core etc. If you have air pockets built up in your system there could be an underlying issue such as small leak as air pockets shouldn't develop that early on a vehicle...if at all.

Washer fluid tank is way out in the front grill of your truck, I seriously doubt you're hearing that in the cab while driving on an icy bumpy road.

If you are then you have some kind of super human K9 hearing! Lol

Seriously though, sounds like a little air in the cooling system making its way to your heater core. Check your coolant level in the overflow tank and pop the radiator cap off (Not while its hot) and make sure the rad is full. Just need to bleed the system to get the air out.

If you have the extra sized gas tank, there have been reports of swooshing .. some report the sound if the tank is less than full .. I have the extra sized tank .. never heard any sounds .. just a thought ..

i haven't heard abut this since my 1991 Buick Roadmaster. Today's system are not like that, they get the air out themselves, as far as I know. I might be wrong...
