Rattle and Slosh

My 06 Spectra has started doing two things: it rattles when I put it in reverse, and occasionally it sounds like there is a gallon of fluid inside the dashboard. Anyone have a clue about either problem?

The rattling seems to go away if I turn hard right or left. The sloshing sound only happens every so often but sure is weird.

The waterfall is air in the cooling system, jack up the front end, take off the radiator cap and let it burp. Top off when you're done.

I have the same ocassional sloshing sound in my 2007 Spectra EX... The dealer bled the cooling system (he says) but the sloshing noise has come back... Any suggestions??... Where is the drain for the A/C located??... Also, what is the proper type of anti-freeze coolant for this car??

Make sure you don't have a leak. It is very easy to NOT get it bled properly, go back and complain about it making the noise again, there is a TSB on it.
