Default Antifreeze

How long does the pink stuff last. Read the manual and did not see
anything about how long antifreeze last on a 2004 Toyota 4 runner.
Thank you

My 2007 Corolla manual says for Canada -- 96 months or 128000 km which
ever comes first for the initial coolant change.

Use only Toyota Super Long Life coolant which is already mixed to
specification.

US -- 50% deionized water and 50% coolant.
CDA -- 45% deionized water and 55% coolant.


I was considering changing the coolant this fall also, but after
checking my manual last week, I was surprised to discover just how long
the factory coolant remained effective.

And for the Prius with SLLC it is after 100k miles for the factory fill and
every 50k after that. Not sure about based on time.

Paid $19 at CarQuest, genuine Toyota, and NOT diluted. So, 2 gallons for
$19.

Sounds about right for 7 dollars worth of antifreeze.
