Hey guys, When my vt warms up then i turn it off this loud gurgling sound is made, and it is the coolant rushing into the overflow bottle, when i pinch the hose going to the overflow bottle the noise stops. So what would make the coolant start rushing to the overflow bottle?

It has never done this before, so i know its not normal. Could this be a faulty radiator cap?

I think a new cap will fix the problem.

im hoping it is the problem lol. I searched around and the 2 things i found it could be are the radiator cap or blown head gasket, but i checked under trhe oil cap and theres no steam coming out the exhaust, but if it happened today, does under the oil cap get milky straight away...

radiator cap. On the cap there is a valve that opens that leads to your overflow and sounds like its not closing.
