    Don't dilute it - use it full strength.
    This is the Pink Fluid - Toyota also has a Red Fluid.

    I hadn't seen it before so I figured I'd snap some photos to share :cool:

    My Second Gen is a 2008 4.0L and uses the Pink fluid. I know Toyota makes a Red colored coolant but I don't know what the difference is or what vehicles use it.

    2nd Gen uses pink. At least for the 4.0L's they do.

    ...too much shit to list.
    It's not limited to second gens. Pink has been used since in all Toyotas since 2000 IIRC.

    The red is not diluted, pink is already pre diluted to 50/50.

    According to the US booklet, 10 years / 100,000 mi.

    According to the Canadian booklet, initially at the equivalent of 8 years / 80,000 mi, then every 4 years / 40,000 mi.

    Makes you wonder, doesn't it?

    It Freezes eh. You get to use a block heater.

    Simple drain and refill. My truck has 30K on it. I don't expect to see anything out of the ordinary in the catch basin.

    It does make you wonder. I'm just going to stick to a maintenance routine that has served me well with multiple Jeeps. If it's good for a Jeep it should be a breeze for my Toyota.

    You're wasting your money. It will do 100K no problem.

    It took me 3 years to get to 30K. No way am I leaving the same coolant in my truck for 10 years.

    I've wasted money on worse things. :cool:

    Buy the undiluted coolant and do a 70/30 mix with water. That will lower the freezing point to -90F/-68C.
    I hope you are using a good 0W20 or 0W30 oil at those temps. :)

    It's the next 100K you should be worried about. :) Toyota has an incentive to skimp on maintenance to 1) look good in the JDPower studies and 2) reduce costs on its free maintenance program. The harmful effects won't appear until after the powertrain warranty expires.

    The recurring 4 years / 40,000 mi interval in the Canadian booklet is a good guideline.
