Question 2001 Celica?

Hi,
My daughter owns a 2001 celica.I know it uses the new red type
extended life coolant,as I can see it in the bottle up front,but haven't figured out how to add coolant?There is plastic trim over covering the bottle?Do you remove this to get at it?Thanks for your help...

It does not use the new extended life coolant. It is red because that is the color of the coolant Toyota has used as far back as I can remember(29 yrs).

Toyota has just started using extended life coolant last year in some models and it is pink.

I think you have to remove the plastic cover to get to the cap. If you drain the coolant there is a special procedure that involves removing the coolant bottle and puting it on the hood latch among some other things. If not followed it will be air bound/and or overheat.

Unless some one replaced it with a different type it should red. You would have to compare the red and the new extended pink to see the difference.

And yes you have to get it from the dealer.
