    Yes, it's pink from the factory. You can order liters from AF1, nobody else will have the same brand and type.

    I used the ENI pink coolant purchased from AF1. I recall reading somewhere that you can use Toyota pink coolant as it’s similar, especially if your in a jam.

    The AGIP/ENI coolant uses OAT technology, so if you can't find the same brand/type, use something that also uses the OAT corrosion package. A lot of Japanese automakers also specify the OAT technology. It's designed to last at least 5 years.

    If it is only 600 miles and one year old, don't replace it, test it with one of these:

    If you don't don't know for sure if the pink stuff is anti freeze or water wetter, get a cheap tester and be sure.
    No need to waste perfectly good coolant.

    I talked with the original owner and he said it was straight from the dealer.....so we should be good. Thanks for all the feed back guys!
