Based on their appearance (i.e. distances are in kilometers), I assumed that these schedules are for Canadian models. I have compared them with two independent sources, including Toyota Canada Web Site, and confirmed that these schedules are accurate.wxm said:Strange! The coolant replacement is at 96K interval?
Distilled water is "ideal", but most of us don't have the time (or a readily available supply of it) to do that. I wonder what dealerships use...??CincyBob said:In terms of coolant replacement, does everyone out there combine "distilled" water with the ethylene glycol coolant?
All tap water has some salt, and some municipalities add quite a bit in a softening process at the water treatment plant, so even if your home does not have a water softener the tap water might perhaps be significantly salty.Rhino said:Also, unless you water has salt in it (you are using a water softener), it will be fine.
I believe that this, from Chemicals | Toyota Owners Online, says the answer is "yes":brownmichael said:I wonder if the pink color indicates the long life antifreeze?
This page does not mention the existence of any other current Toyota coolants.Toyota said:Genuine Toyota Super Long-Life Antifreeze/Coolant is the same high quality factory-fill product found in new Toyotas. You'll know it by its distinctive pink color.
Ah, ok thanks.robo5 said:On the bottom of the pdf it says '72 months or 144,000KM, whichever occurs first'. I can see where it is confusing. But no you do not have to replace the second belt more frequent. It is a time vrs. KM (mileage) thing.
