Default What Color Antifreeze?

I have a 2007 Camry and 8 jugs of coolant which are all different. Any guidance?

Need to read the containers to determine what the coolant type is and what its claimed to be compatible with. Coolant color is just a dye and means nothing.

The car uses a Hybrid Organic Acid Technology (HOAT) type coolant also referred to as Japan or Asian formula coolant.

The coolant is silicate, borate, nitrites and amine free but does have phosphate. There are OAT coolants but the HOAT type has added phosphate.

Aftermarket coolants for Toyota have names with word Asian in them.

Don't use DEX-Cool!

I agree with toyomoho especially Dex-Cool. I use that in my Suburban.
