Default Weirdest sound I think I ever heard a vehicle make.

I got home tonight, parked the ranger in the garage, got out, and heard the weirdest sound coming from somewhere by my back driver side wheel. It sounded like a faucet that had air in it and water trying to come through. Like it was girgling or something. Kinda sounded like if you got a bucket of water and moved your hand through it really quick. Its a hard sound to describe so bear with me. Any ideas? I pulled it out of the garage and checked to see if it was something in the garage but it wasn't, then when I pulled it back in, the sound stopped. TIA

Sounds like the gas in your tank was sloshing around

That could be it but I heard it slosh around before, and it was never that bad.

hahaha how bout it. The more I think about it, Im pretty sure it wasnt the gas sloshing around, cause this sound wasn't stopping. Any other ideas?

Then you'll never find out what the noise is! Maybe something in the bed had water in it and it was draining out
