Re: 99 tahoe 5.7 Cant figure out the problem

It was gargling because it was low on coolant and air was passing through the heater core

Fill the cooling system and pressure test it. Then look for leaks.

Intake gaskets are common, radiators are common. It could be plastic fittings leaking if you have rear heat. It could be a lot of things. Its 18 years old. If it is the intake gaskets, replace them with the updated set.

mine was running out of coolant. my tech found small leak from intake gasket. seems like its a common issue. better catch it before it leaks inside as well as out.
