Canada 1992 Toyota Camry LE

Hey

Just bought a '92 Camry LE V6 3.0L recently and it was needing some coolant.
I figured I'd just replace the radiator and all that jazz just for some preventative maintenance, but before I do this, I wanted to know what type of coolant my car takes? I've tried searching it online many times to no avail.
Also, is there an owner's manual I can find online, or buy? I'm not finding any of that stuff online either.


Thanks!
Indigo

I personally run zerex Toyota/Lexus/scion blend. By valvoline. Good stuff and it meets the OEM specification for a silicate free HOAT coolant

Older Toyota’s used Red coolant. Newer vehicles use pink. The pink is backward compatible with the red and visa versa. The zerex Toyota coolant is pink, and pre diluted with demineralized water

Zerex pink, Toyota red/pink, Prestone green would work, friends been using that for years These cars are not too picky. I’m be more concern how long the coolant was ran.

I would use either red or pink. If it looks orange or dark brown, coolant is ran too long and or mixing occurred. How’s the radiator cap looking?
