    Let me guess sounds like its coming from behind the dash board? Think it is actually under the skuttle where the linkages are, there are drains there thinkg the water sits there. Only notice it after a heavy down pour or during one.

    That's the exact noise i'm hearing. Car has been sitting around for a while as i got a VXR as a company car. Hoping that your right as the damn thing is loosing coolant and was hoping that noise wasn't a result of that. Mind you, never heard it when I drove her every day and still had the coolant loss problem.

    Coolant loss may be Cylinder head m8 - i hope not, check the oil too - if this is dropping rapidly then the head gasket is on its way out.

    Take the car to a garage and get them to do a pressure test.

    Oil is still looking good thank god

    It only looses coolant when I run the A/C. I have it turned off, but the missus loves the A/C to much and thats when I run into problems.

    I would still get it pressure tested, the possiblity of a cylinder head issues is not eliminated tho m8, oil is ok then there is less likely of a head issue but I would deffo get it checked.

    I hope it isn't that, only had the major service a little while ago. I have the pressure test kit in my garrage so can check it pretty easily.

    could be head gasket or possibly a coolant leak from one of the hoses?
