Toyota Coolant

Help!

First time owner of a Yaris hybrid automatic. A friend bought some coolant for me to put in, but he got me red and I think the car has pink in it. I have topped it up with diluted red.

Have I done anything really stupid?

The coolant should have been the pink Super Long Life, whereas the red is Long Life. Difference is probably the service intervals the first fill from new for the pink is 10 years/100,000 miles, and the red 5 years/50,000 miles.

Thank you! So I haven't done any lasting damage then? It was only about 200 MLS diluted red as well, not masses.

Been panicking since doing it!

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
