Question. Was noise their before the service ? Is auto trans ? If auto trans. It have 2 drain plugs. One in oil pan and one in diff area I the diff area. 2 different types of fluid are used in this auto trans. A gear oil for the diff and ATF for the automatic part of trans. Did you drain oil from both plugs and only add ATF and not gear oil. Gear oil is filled through the plug on side of trans for the diff and ATF is filled through the dip stick ( as dealer calls it ). Charge pipe I hope that you have not drive very much with no gear oil in it because damage to diff maybe result

I did nothing with the diff, i performed a 100k maintenance overlook. Just flushed transmission fluid and filled. Fluid was a little low but I have now correct reading. With a low reading would that cause that gurgling noise you think?

How does the coolant look? Is it pink? Gurgling to me indicates air. Since it was low before, was there an indication of a leak? Maybe it is mixing with your coolant?

hmm.. weird scenario. Back to "UP" asking if it's AT or MT.. Leaning towards AT.
