Default Sloshing sound

I've noticed a sloshing sound everytime I drive. It's very consistent, everytime I drive off it sounds like water's running out of a hose or something.

Today I did a test, put it in N and kept it at 1500 rpms, keeps hearing that sloshing sound. The car isn't moving though.

Anyone got an idea as to what it may be?

Air trapped in the cooling system and heater core? Check whether the coolant level is low in the radiator and reservoir.

I hear it more when ac/heat is on, so that makes sense. How do I fix it, drain all the coolant and refill?

I just checked it, the overflow container is wayyy below the "low" line, should I add more antifreeze?

When the engine is cold, top off the coolant in both the radiator and the reservoir. Then bleed the system as detailed in the service manual.

Thank you, I'll do it tomorrow. Would that make any difference in performance at all? I've been getting 22 mpg for a while now and I can't seem to figure out what's wrong...my dad hasn't done anything to this car for 3 years now - only oil changes.

It's possible. If air gets trapped around the coolant temperature sensor under the distributor, then the ECU will receive false temp readings that could might make the engine run rich.
