Coolant Question

My coolant level is at the Low line. I noticed that its greenish in color. Could I just add water temporarily until I can find time to flush it and add the Toyota Coolant?

you could just add water temporarily but i would flush it out as soon as possible. you should not have green coolant in your car though eek eek read many threads about this and not good to have.

yeah dude go to toyota and pick up the coolant, Its like a pinkish-red. Its like about 13-16 bucks i believe. And you would need to do a whole coolant flush to start using toyota coolant.

Green coolant works fine. But yah, just add water to top it up.

Or you can buy premixed coolant that is at a 50% mix already.

green coolant = harmful to aluminum parts and sealants

this has been said many times

oh and if you don't wanna use toyota's red-pink coolant.. other brands make the same type of coolant. just look for the same color it means that it has no silicates or borates
