Hello. Welcome ot Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. The 2000 Avalon, with ABS and traction control, will make a noise if the wheels encounter a spin condition. When this happens, the brakes are automatically applied a bit (by the ABS module) to slow down the spinning wheels, and transfer power to the other side wheel (this is what traction control is). The noise is normal, as is the weird braking feeling.
