What's the temp reading?If it reads 210,it's not overheating.How can you HEAR it being sucked OUT and not IN?When it's hot,that's where it goes.They make noises after being stopped.It's normal.

I'm having the same problem, sounds like someone slurping on a drink when I get done driving. Also, there is a nice aroma of coolant.

after i shut off the jeep and i walk past the front of it going inside i hear like a slurping like djfuzzy said i opened up the hood and i saw coolant being sucked back into the engine from the overflow.

im thinking maybe theres too much coolant in the engine but then wouldnt it not get sucked back in ?

idk im confused

I have the same problem!

I have an 04 rubicon with 33s and it sees a lot of highway use and during the summer it always runs 210 or 215 and i already replaced the fan clutch and the thermostat and had the radiator flushed and it still does it! If i run it without the t-stat it runs about 195 or 200. Is this normal and should i be worried? Could my water pump be going out? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

200 is fine. coolant expands when its hot, so thats why its moving in and out of the coolant bottle. its supposed to do that....unless you've got a coolant leak and you're having to add coolant...thats different.

I had a hairline crack in my radiator, caused the coolant smell, resevoir to be emptied out. It was so small that I coulndt find the leak.

When you first shut the engine off, it's no longer being cooled. The over flow tank will fill more. As the cooling system cools down, the fluid is sucked back into the system...
