SilverSport I often get the gurgle when I let off the throttle and start coasting and the engine is doing the braking.

phottomatt Minr was gurgling also and I just couldn't figure out why.

There isn't any idling really beyond starting the jeep and putting into gear. Seriously about 3 secs before I start moving and then hear it. Sounds normal just wanted to check with others.

kik Normal. I would only check to see if the muffler weep hole is possibly clogged.

nwbronco Throttle up before you put it in gear for a sec. You get a carbon and water splat, clearing the rig's throat before the trek.

Was thinking that but my last jeep didn't do this. Maybe I didn't hear it because I was always driving away fast.

Muffler gurgle sound?

Anyone else experience what I'm describing? After I start my jeep and drive it for about 20-30 feet I hear what sounds like a little gurgle coming out of the back of the jeep muffler side. Do the JKs or jeeps in general build up some kind of condensation after sitting for a while and then you hear it after starting up? It only does it maybe one time after first moving then stops.

Ideas?
