Coolant

Asked by Mar 30, 2016 at 08:18 PM about the 2000 Toyota Camry Solara SLE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I bought my 2000 Toyota Solara SLE V6 3.0L about
a year ago. At that time it had 92k miles on it. It now
has 100k miles. I just found out 2 days ago that it
had the wrong coolant in it. The color of the coolant
is green when it's suppose to be pink or light red.
Would that have any major effect on my car?

None really as long as it is changed when it is supposed to be changed. What most likely happened is something went out on the cooling system and they just pressure flushed it with green coolant at a shop somewhere. There are green coolants out there that are universal now and mix with all colors. If your really concerned about this then you can always have the system flushed and filled with the proper color coolant. Personally I use SERRIA coolant, it is green, it is a safe coolant, environmentally friendly and safe around pets and it works in all makes and models, the only drawback is you can't mix it with other coolants, so all SERRIA or nothing.

Those aren't Toyota codes, they should start with a letter then 4 numbers.
