    Is the pink antifreeze that comes in the Tacoma availible at the parts stores or is it a dealer item? Also, at what interval are you guy's doing a cooling system flush?
    Thanks!

    I'm not waiting 100k, I let my Sonoma go too long and had mega cooling system problems.

    I had a barrette that was 100k. Followed the instructions to the letter and the head gasket went out at 110K. The dealers say to never go the full 100k since it will cause issues to the water pump and gaskets.
