the manual tranny doesnt require an external cooler...if you are getting a gurgiling nosie coming from the heater core area that is usually a sign of you having air within the cooling system and it needs to be removed...

PEACE OF MIND!! I just got my 05 Fronty back from the dealership, it was in for the timing chain issue (JUST made it under warranty!) as well as emission control valve flappy thingy...had them do the trans-radiator by-pass as well. They put in a second cooler on top of the factory one..No worries now, looks like a clean job, thanks to Lynnes Nissan West of Stanhope, NJ....

'05 Fronty KC 2wd SE, '03 Rav4 (Hers!), 2014 BMW R2100R.. I'd rather be Ridin' right now..

Can someone describe this a little better. When exaclty it happens and such?

When I shut my truck off, usually within say 20 seconds I hear a strange noise from behind the dash that sounds similar to a gurgle noise. It's done it since I bought the truck (18 months ago w/ 31k miles). I'm now at 41k miles, no signs of any issues though.

Best description I can give when there is air in the coolant system is that it sounds like someone is pouring a glass of water inside your upper glovebox.

Or like there is one of those waterfall fountains they sell for $20 in there.

I took mine in for this problem. They are replacing my radiator and transmission. Does anyone know if I need to do a by pass with the new hardware?

Mine makes a strange noise, but only after I shut the engine off completely. When did yours make this noise?

In theory no. However, I don't 100% know the parts used now are put together in a different fashion either.

If you have an air bubble in the coolant system or are low on coolant, the noise (running water in the glove box) will occur while running at an idle.

I was just at the Nissan Dealership yesterday getting a new drive shaft installed due to bad u joints under warrenty and while I was there they went ahead and did the by pass for me. My truck already has a external cooler that comes with the towing package so all they had to do was switch some lines around and flush out the rest of the transmission fluid that was in the internal cooler inside the radiator. I'm glad I have a Great Nissan Dealership close. One less thing I have to worry about!
