kitchen sink gurgling... really making me mad..

ok... here's what was going on, and what i have done..


3 weeks ago....
-- kitchen making a gurgling sound
--- poured bottle of drano down sink, waited 30min, dumped a bunch of water down drain, still making gurgling sounds.

1 week ago....
-- kitchen drain slowing down, getting really slow draining...

today..
-- kitchen drain very slow.
--- took pipes apart, ran snake down pipe about 5 feet, hit something, cleared it out.
-- put pipes back together, filled up sink with water, didn't even drain at all.... (#$%#$%#@$%#@$%#@$%#@$%)
-- took pipes apart, got water all over the #$#@$ place
--- snake again about 15 feet
--- 2 containers of drano down the main pipe
--- wait 30 min
---- snake again about 17 feet (no problems)
--- one more thing of drano.
-- put sink back together
--- water draining fine, but the gurgling sound is back..

How the hell do i get rid of the gurgling sound ????

The sink line could be much longer than 17 feet... The snake is the right idea, but you need an electric snake and you should run it atleast 25 or 30 feet... Run it back and forth once you get the cable all the way in just to be thorough... STOP pouring drano in there unless it is the buildup remover... The clog remover type won't do much with that type of clog...
