2008 noise

Post by flan48 »



I picked up a used 2008 1800 late last year. I've noticed a pulsating sound at idle that sounds like it's coming from the radiator(s) or water pump area. Can anyone shed any light for me?

The water pump and the radiators are a long way apart. My 2010 and my 08 both make (made) a pulsing sound, like a washing machine, normal.
