My kitchen sink drains ok for a while, but then starts a burbling sound as it continues to drain all the water.why ? I have cleaned the line with a snake ,but it still persists . Do you think I did not clean all the line or do you think the air vent up through the roof is partially plugged ?

I agree , plugged vent stack....or to meet code there normally is separate vents for each bathroom.. If done right you can use one stack by using a one way valve system

Get the plumber back out there- I suppose the toilets were the reason you called him in the first place?
Run the camera down the vent and see if in fact IT is clean.
