How much coolant should i put?

Hi. I'm new in this forum. I want to change my coolant (flush) but am not sure how much i should put into it. I bought a toyota long life coolant and the guy told me that one gallon is enough but i shloud mix it with distilled water(50/50). Is 1 gal enough? I have a 2001 tacoma pre-runner.

Check the manual for the capacity. I think the Toyota stuff is pre mixed.

Do what the dealer does-run 100% of the 50/50 stuff-costs more but guarantees you the right mix and proper protection.

Remember not all Toyota coolant is pre-mixed so you may or may not have to add distilled water. Read the directions.
