Default when to change the coolant

I have a 2009 4 cyl. Camry I got in 2008 and it has about 60k on it. I think the owner's manual says to change this extended life coolant at 100k but it's over 5 years old now.


Should I go ahead and change it or wait till I get to 100k?

yes change it now with the extended life coolant

then decide years /km used and decide next change ok

these motors need protection from corrosion and heat

Default where to buy replacement coolant

Thanks for the tip. I'll go ahead and change it out.


I assume I should only purchase the extended life coolant directly from the dealer, right?

looks like you dont have to go to toyota but if its closer and the price suits you

just did a quick online search in usa .. "extended life coolant supplier "
do a quick search yourself

we can buy it off the shelf at most auto supply shops in australia its more expensive than most regular coolants
