    Hey fellas,

    Can we use anything besides the pink coolant that's in our 1GRFE motors? I mean can you drain the pink and add like green... would this be bad is the question

    Thanks,
    Richard

    Thank You for the quick response!

    I figured I would ask anyway, rather not do it and suffer problems later down the road.

    You can't mix the two, but you can drain and flush the pink out and switch to green if you wanted to.

    Make sure you mix it with distilled water and not the crap water out of your tap.
