Dude, you need an exhaust! :)

Just coolant.

Motor mounts? :rofl:

yeah I was thinking coolant as well... On my other car I could sometimes hear it flowing through the lines at startup. Was your heater in use at that moment?

Thats right, Turn up the radio or getter a louder exhaust.
My Daddy always told me: Make sure you have a good sounding exhaust, Roll up the windows, turn on the radio, Then if you hear something that sounds wrong it probably needs fixed

From some of the horror stories on here, 81,6xx actually, she's good. 3 rears, motor mounts, radio flaking. Ya beat her and she breaks. Take care of her and she lasts.

I figured it was the coolant since I saw a few small spots on the floor in the garage. I filled her back up and still hear it. Heater wasn't on, but I used it for the first time recently...

On the exhaust, I'm waiting until I have a dd truck. As far as truning up the radio, I just step on the gas. The engine is all the sound I need.

Thanks for the replies.
