Got Tesco wiper blades though as a stop gap but are fine. Chris Its probably because your on the wrong forum and have a a wee is200 that you don't know the Lexus Ls400 is reffered to in the world as the Japanese Rolls Royce. Good luck with your research. I flushed my system but then was amazed by the price so I went to and bought their ready mixed pink coolant for £25 for 10 litres. If anyone has used this, let me know what you think. The pink is premixed and you're not supposed to add water. Case and all internal parts, transaxle mounts, seals and gaskets.
They gotta be kidding - but they weren't. It is a difference in the metallurgy. There is not justmetal in your heads and block. All Genuine factory parts are backed by the manufacturer's warranty, low priced and shipped directly from Northeast Ohio! What prompted me to change fluid was the previous owners did a fair amount of towing and I started to notice a shift delay going from reverse to drive. Actually, most modern long life antifreeze is acidic. Or did you get it tested and there is something wrong? Im running the toyota red in my t100 because that's what was in it.
This one is also good to read through all the posts: Anyways, what the mfg wants you to believe. Are you changing the coolant because you want to? This Toyota does not authorize any person to program is administered by an create for it any other obligation or liability independent third party: in connection with this vehicle.

Those pesky customers can be so damn annoying. Was just having a laugh over the Rolls Royce comment, was meant to be light hearted, sorry. Asked her specifically about Mobil 1, and she talked to Roger, who stated that Mobil 1 would be ok. He didn't buy a Roller so didn't expect Rolls Royce running costs! If a Lexus dealer and Lexus Technician say the pink stuff is as good as theirs then that's good enough for me.
I wasn't trying to offend you or belittle your comment. My guess would be they are sold by the liter. Not worth saving a few dollars to find out which one is better at preventing corrosion or maintaining the integrity of gaskets. I always use Mobile 1 for my oil on my vehicles, so no questions there. Do you know if anyone has used it upwards of 15K miles? Yes, my Toyota manual says to change the Toyota original coolant at 8 Years, but afterwards change it every 4 years. And in the winter months this fluid also helps keep any water in your radiator from freezing and expanding and bursting.
Lol comparing an old Lexus with a Rolls Royce. I'm about to try this in my Tacoma and Camry. Those pesky customers can be so damn annoying. In order to avoid technical problems, we strongly recommend using? I have found those who have used the coolant in toyotas even with the 1. Also found this helpful: from Prestone faq. The language is silent on the use of silicate or borate free antifreeze. He said that these lubricants are not available from Toyota for customer purchase, and pointed to the stuff on the display shelves - Mag 1 or Max 1 or something 75W-90 synthetic - and said I should use that.
Whereas I can read the ingredients on the side of a Prestone Long-Life bottle, I can? Yes they are compatible but you still shouldn't mix them. He said that these lubricants are not available from Toyota for customer purchase, and pointed to the stuff on the display shelves - Mag 1 or Max 1 or something 75W-90 synthetic - and said I should use that. The corrosion inhibit is oat or hoat. Won't make the same mistake again. I've seen post of the 2010's with a drain bolt that connects to a drain hose maybe a carry over from Gen2's? Thought better stick to the original.
The pink super long life coolant is good for 100k, after that, every 50k miles. Are there brand name equivalent coolants to the? There's no reason to use this stuff anymore and likely any that you'll find on the shelf at a store is dead anyway. Margarita reiterated that as long as I used oil that was specified in the owner's manual then the warranty would be ok. This is done for a variety of reasons -- longevity -- metal content and seal construction. Its supposedly better for the seals and metals that make up the cooling system.

I plan to get an extended warranty since I'm planning to keep this vehicle for 10 or more years, so I need to also make sure the extended warranty isn't compromised by using inappropriate oil. Mike Just got the concentrated 5 litre coolant off Ebay £26 came from Toyota Sheffield. Coolant also known as Antifreeze is an essential part of your engine year-round. I assume that I can just drain the radiator and fill it back up , with the pink and at least have some fresh coolant with no worries about freeze protection since it is all premixed. They do their best to make you think you can't use anything else and apparently it has worked here.
