Default Thumping/Gurgling noise from 4.0l after shutting engine off.

Hey guys, I have a 97 XLT 4.0 L and a new problem arose. I developed a thumping/gurgling sound in the engine after it warms up. I stop at a traffic light and I can feel this thumping/gurgling noise as it idles. When I get home and shut off the engine, it will sit there and thump/gurgle for 20-30 seconds. It is coming from the cooling system as I can feel it in the top rad hose. I changed the thermostat and that didn't help. I had changed the intake manifold gasket (the one piece style-the better one from Ford) at about 1000-1500 km's (600-800 miles) ago. Any suggestions? Thanks !

A head gasket leak where piston compression is forcing air into the cooling system maybe?
