    It sounds like there is no vent on the sink. What you are hearing is the trap be siphoned.

    And let me add this:

    If you have a vent, it may be stuffed with leaves and other trash to the point that it's ineffective.

    I think that all three drains are on the same line. That's ok, but the line has to be clear of obstructions to function properly.

    Regarding positioning the toilet: every toilet is different, but the holes for the tie down bolts are standard.
