    Sorry if this is a frequent repost, but I've searched and don't really see it anywhere.

    I have a 2010 Prerunner that is just about to reach 100K miles. Does everybody do the recommended coolant system flush and/or fluid replacement? I've read somewhere that the pink super long life coolant doesn't need to be changed, but I'm doubting that it literally means it "never" needs to be changed. Thoughts?

    I believe 10 years/100k miles is the recommendation. There's a DIY write up on here. 2 gallons coolant, drain petcocks on each side of the block. I did OEM thermostat and housing, and hoses at the same time.

    Thanks. I'm seeing a few other threads now saying the same thing. Not sure how I missed them the first couple of times I looked. Can't find the write-up yet, but, even if I don't find it, we aren't talking about rocket surgery...
