I have a 2008 4Runner SR5 V6. I need to flush my cooling system. Does anyone know if I am supposed to use the red or pink coolant? Also, about how much do I need (I'm trying to decide if I need to order two containers)? I found some Pentofrost pink coolant on Amazon. Can I use that or is it imperative I use Toyota-brand coolant?
