2006 Toyota Tacoma Q&A

2006 Toyota Tacoma Question: coolant

what is the best and proper coolant type and brand to use in my truck? -
Answer 1
Toyota factory coolant for your specific year and model of your Truck. Get it form the dealer, that is what I do. It makes a big difference long term, because the additives are perfect for your engine and the bearing in your water pump. Change it every 30k or sooner. -
