Default 2003 Camry sloshing

My Camry makes a sloshing noise, it sounds like it is coming from the
driver's side dash or the engine compartment on the driver's side. This
happens only ocassionaly, but the weather is dry and the car runs fine.
Just want to see if anyone else has heard this noise?

Check your transmission oil-level is correct.

You're probably hearing the coolant from your AC system. If you can bear
it, try running without the AC for a day and see if it stops.

You may also need a recharge, or perhaps a half pound of refrigerant added.

Open the hood and look for the receiver drier, usually in front of the
radiator/condensor. It will have a blue or black plug in the top of it;
pull the plug to reveal the sight glass. Start the car and get the AC
cold. You should not see much of anything, or what looks like a steady
stream. If you see bubbles or gaps, you need refilling.

On the newer cars the sight glass has been moved from the receiver drier
and is behind the radiator, but I don't know where...

Sounds like the drain for the AC is plugged. It exits the vehicle under the
firewall, behind the engine on the passenger side. It's a rubber tube appx
3/8" in diameter and can be cleaned with a piece of wire by poking gently.

davidj92,

You are correct. Service man told me this is common on Camry but more
often in spring and fall.
Thanks.
