    well starting to dip down to -0 in the night now so finally took the time to test the red fluid in the hijets rad. the needle didnt even move on the antifreeze tester. I have read that they dont use antifreeze in some parts of japan. So made me wonder what it is they use. Is it toyota red coolant?

    Here in the Philippines, most just use plain water and change it out often. Don't have any idea of what you will find in other locale.

    Flush it out real good,it seems like a mixture of sea water and battery acid is what most of them have for coolant.

    Amazingly it is nice red coolant. But according to my antifreeze tester say has no antifreeze ablilty. Ah well I will get some Toyota red equivalent coolant and flush and refill.
