Is it normal to hear the sound like water dropping inside car?
It is my first car, 2001 forester, just bought.

After I turn off the engine, I can hear some sound like water dropping inside car.
So is it normal things or is sth leaking?

Sounds like you have trapped air in your coolant system - take it to a shop and have them burp it and add some coolant.

if there is, it's from the turbo swap. What I did was hook everything back up, and as the car was running, added coolant to the turbo reservoir. Never opened the other radiator cap. Advice?

Thanks
Is it a serious problem?
When doing inspection today, I ask the guy who did the inspection for me the same thing.
He said it might come from the cooling system of engine.
Do I need to bring the car to a shop and have it checked?
Thanks again!

Yeah I also swear I have a faucet in my dash. It's always done it however. Even when I had the 2.5 NA engine and now with the WRX motor.

cheers

I also found some water-like things in the ground under the car.
Does this means that the coolant is leaking?

Did you have your A/C on?
Could just be condensation if it was on.

No, my A/C is definately off.
So it is so strange that I can find some water like things in the ground under the car. It is just under the front of the car.

I saw this car has a recall for the coolant conditioner on Sep.
Is it sth wrong with the coolant?

So worry about the coolant or sth else leaking.

Thanks for all replies.
