    Seems to be a TCU (Transmission Control Unit) issue. There might be a TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) for this malfunction/symptom. Contact your nearest dealership and ask if there's an 'Upgrade" (Reprogramming of TCU) in existence for this problem. If not, try this - disconnect the battery cables from the battery and touch them together (battery disconnected) (+) cable touch to (-) cable for 15 seconds... then reconnect the battery cables -- see if this makes any difference in drivability.

Why would the sound of water flowing through a tube happen when we start to accelorate?

The sloshing noise may be caused from air in the cooling system.

If there's air in the system, it ends up in the heater core because it's the highest point in the cooling system. When you accelerate, the water pump spins faster pushing coolant into the heater core forcing the air out causing the sloshing noise.

To remove any air from the cooling system, get the engine up to operating temperature. With the engine idling loosen the upper radiator hose clamp. take a small flat bladed screwdriver and slip it between the upper radiator hose and the radiator hose neck. Allow the engine to idle until all that comes out from the radiator hose is coolant. Retighten the hose clamp.

Their is additional electrical damage. You could have done as little damage as blowing the main fuse 100amp or so, or there can be major damage such as destroying computer related components. This is a complex problem an you will have to have access to a computer scanner that can read live data which will require you to be familiar with engine sensors and electrical components. I do not recommend you tackle this yourself unless you have some level of automotive technical training.
