Default traction control

This is just another newbie question. When traction control kicks on in my car It makes quite the racket. I mean its loud. It only kicked on a few times during the end of winter. I've only had my car for a couple of months. I've never delt with tc so I was just wondering if this was normal? Man, and I thought ABS caused a ruckus.

To cure the gurgling noise, let the car warm up in your driveway with the radiator cap off and them add coolant. It sounds like you have an air lock.

Is tghe coolant bottle empty, by any chance?
