2001 Escape started loud gulping gurgle???

Asked by Mar 19, 2014 at 11:51 AM about the 2001 Ford Escape XLT 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2001 Ford Escape I was driving it down the freeway today when it started making a gurgling sound. A loud gurgle. The spacing of the gurgle wasn't like water or liquid, it was like the seconds on a clock, it would have a big gulp sound one after another, or like an engine where it sounds like the idle isn't steady and so it gets that high and low sound. So I parked and it does it at idle. I'm sorry if I'm not explaining this well. I'm hoping someone can relate. Does anyone know what this could be?

    I just filled the tank 9/tenths full, the gas cap light on dash has been on for months. Also the tank is difficult to fill; when putting gas in the tank the pump nozzle constantly cuts out.
