Upon R&R of the coolant temp sensor on my girlfriends '97, I noticed the coolant looked redish brown. It is obviously due for a good flushing no matter what coolant was in there. My question is did the '97 come with the green or red coolant from the factory. I know that the late 90's is when some vehicle manufacturers started to change over from the green stuff to the red.

Only buy the Toyota stuff. Red. It doesn't have silicates in it like a lot of the green stuff does. Have you ever seen the deposits the green stuff leaves. It like a clumpy pile of white sh*t. That's what I'll do when its time. Just my opinion though.
