Question gurgling sinks

Why do both my bathtub and kitchen sink drain gurgle when I flush my toilet?? I dissambled my kitchen sink trap to clean and when I reinstalled it it won't retain water in the trap and both tub and sink gurgle when I flush the toilet. Are they related and what can I do??

You have a partially clogged drain pipe or a clogged vent pipe on the roof.
Check the vent pipe(s) on the roof first for debris, birdnest, etc., remove what you can by hand and then flush the stack with a water hose sprayer.
If that doesn't help, you need to open clean-out plugs and remove traps and and snake the drain pipes for a partial clog.
Use a large heavy-duty plumber's snake for the main drain, and a smaller, flexible crank-handle snake for the smaller drains.
Good Luck!
