gurgling sound from the engine??

Anyone ever have a gurgling sound in their engine when they hit the gas?? I just started really noticing it since i started using my bikini top. I checked for error codes and my FSM says

"# 11 error: No crank reference signal detected during engine cranking. Intermittent loss of either camshaft or crankshaft position sensor. CKP sensor target windows have too much variation. "

any ideas??

I'd say that your camshaft and/or crankshaft position sensors are malfunctioning. The engine's computer can't use the data that is or isn't being sent.

There is a little ribbon that comes out of the distributer cap and goes into the engine....that is the same code I was getting...and it was going so far as to not let the jeep start sometimes...go check that...follow the ribbon and it should have a little connector...mine was loose and would fall out completely once in a while which was keeping the jeep from running...hope that helps

I tried looking at the ribbon and it seems to be okay. Any other suggestions before i take it to the stealership??

Only time I've ever had a gurgling/water rushing sound was right before my heater core completely clogged in -20 weather.
