gurgling? or water rushing? sounds like you might have an air pocket in your coolant lines. thats what mine is. coolant was leaking out from my bypass hose, letting air in... part was $19 from lexus, + 2 gal of coolant from TOYOTA ($20 cheaper than lexus, same exact stuff). $21 each.

Agreed.

You can't let it go, it's rather important you get the air out to avoid core damage. The normal technique didn't help me either, that's why i use the funnel method or you can drain some via rad drain, both techniques with the rad cap off. Make sure to use the coolant that's in the car. This goes into it further...
