Didn't realize this was a 3rd gen thred as I have a 4th gen, but nevertheless, this is usually what I go with, I don't do a good job of checking the engine coolant, but never had a problem yet. I just fill it to the recommended level when I catch that it's low. I just bought it today cause I'm tired of my car blowing cold air when idle... That and for my little 16 month old so she doesn't freeze. Their might be a little leak somewhere but I just put 1.5k into new tires, windshield, serpintine belt and the SAR or SAS can't remember, airbag warning light that came on.

It happens. :] That should work. I use Toyota OEM long lasting antifreeze in my older toyotas. I buy the concentrate and mix 50/50 with distilled water. The pink fluid is used in the newer Toyotas as my 09 Camry and my moms 2011 Camry use it.

If I exchange the antifreeze. I go with the long lasting red fluid. I just top off the newer vehicles I use pink.

I dont know alot about the new pink fluid as it probably replaces the older fluid.

I disagree with those saying that factory didnt put in red coolant until 99, my 98 had red coolant in it from first timing belt job.

Changing the coolant on a regular basis is just as, if not more important than the brand you use. Find one that meets the requirements and stick with it.

Tim, I also do not want to carry coolant on remote trips.
Question: If a hose blew and one had to add coolant to the system after the repair, couldn't one just put clean water into the cooling system for a few days or a week without doing harm?

Adding any water to the coolant will change your ratio and therefore your freezing/boiling points, but it will be fine in the short term. The preferred water to add is distilled water because it doesn't have as many minerals to corrode as tap or bottled water. I would flush my coolant sooner than later after adding tap water to my cooling system.

I always carry a jug of water/antifreeze on remote trips. One time I had a hose blow on a remote back road and had to make several long walks to a stream with a water bottle, at night, to refill the system so I could get out.
replaced lower rad hose and flushed system on my return to civilization.
Used duct tape and the clamp off my intake hose over the hole area...leaked...but I got out. I also now carry rescue tape.overheated the car, that's how I knew I blew a hose..no issues with head gaskets etc, so I was lucky. At first I though I did, but that poor running was related to the clamp off hose on the intake up by throttle body, so fuel air ratio was not correct.

I now use the full strength red antifreeze and mix to proportions needed to get to minus 50.
when I lived in Oregon, would mix 50/50 with distilled water.

Down here in SoCal, I mix 40/60 antifreeze/water for higher heat capacity (better engine cooling). That's a good reason to stick with the non-diluted Red...

I use Green stuff. The latest with added corrosion inhibitors, long life 5 year/100K stuff. I've never owned a Toyota that had the red stuff.

Sometimes I add "water wetter". Mostly cause I like the name and the theory. My rigs still run 189 to 192 degrees despite the claims of 20-30 degrees cooler. I dream that it somehow reduces hot spots in the heads.

If I've ever had issues from silicates I didn't realize it. The green stuff hasn't caused me any issues.
