Only at the dealer. It's Toyota's special blend. Be sure you pick up the right pink stuff from Toyota. They have the lifetime pink and the regular pink used in the early 00's vehicle. If you're topping off, water will be fine until you do the proper flush.

yeah, but it isn't like the tc MUST have pink coolant, i've been running green coolant from my b&g radiator flush for over year now and my tc stays cool as can be, weathter in traffic, supercharged, autocrossing or my 2000 mile round trip to florida. sure, toyota's long life pink coolant is great stuff, but your not going to suffer a melt down using any other quality coolant.

You can use the green stuff if your complete flush the system. Meaning that everything in the radiator, block and the heater core has to be flushed.

Are you topping off the reservoir? If so, just put water in it.

I'm pretty sure if you just put water in it won't hurt anything. Just make sure it's not tap water. You can also order the Motul orange concentrated mix. It's free of all the chemicals Toyota says (Nitrite free / Amine free / Phosphate free / Borate free / Silicate free)

does anyone know for sure if it stillhas to be dionized water or distilled water in the system,I ask cause the reason I thought it was not to use tap water was it created a static charge in iron blocks using steele heads and led to corrosion.Been so long I do not remember,I still use dionized water to this day though.

since we have an all aluminum block it should not have the same problems right......

how often do you guys flush your coolant? I'm at 32k miles on my tC and haven't flushed it yet?

car temps are ok but I know that shouldn't be my only indicator lol
