Cars in good shape, water is full, oil is full, winder shield wiper fluid is good,

Normal, coolant if flowing back to expansion tank. check level to make sure it's not overfilled. only to cold level mark.


Bubbling sounds can be boiling due to a low ratio of anti-freeze to water. I would also check the coolant level and make sure it is not low and that you don't have air in the system.
