i can safely presume that this is water running through the heater matrix. maybe it is freezing in the matrix and the sound is like that because of icy water? Is that a long shot?

why dont you just get a compression test done, or else check the plugs

the you will know for sure

and water wont freeze in the matrix as it uses the coolant system water

true, could be the gasket. Exhaust gasses in the coolant so it could be bubbles. get a pressure test done
