Madlock Posted December 22, 2010 Report Share Posted December 22, 2010 After Googling the phenomenon a bit, I realize I'm not the only person to have experienced it, but it sounds so freakishly strange that I had to ask for some insight from the more experienced members here. When lifting-off my foot from the accelerator after revving the engine from an idle, I hear a "gurgling" sound - almost like coffee percolating or the whoosh of water through the waste pipe when somebody upstairs flushes - or runs the shower. Many people attribute this to being a normal phenomenon that's just part of the exhaust note, but this sound seems to be coming from just in front of the firewall on the driver's side. I tried to attribute it to something specific - blower spool-down, but there was no pressure - etc. All I could tie it to was lifting my foot off the accelerator - which told me absolutely bupkus. It either didn't occur (or I didn't notice it) during the first 1,100-or-so miles, and there's nothing unusual I can otherwise tie it to. It's in the middle of a tank of 93 gas from the same trusted vendor where I always fill-up, so I'm really at a loss. Is this just part of the 5.4 L's charm?
