Default Coolant on a sunday???

As above guys, Anyone know where i can get my hands on some OEM or better coolant for the rex.

Need to put the koyo in today as the old OEM rad thought it was a good time to split the rest of the seal...

Any help would be great.......

Unless I'm mistaken, isn't there Sunday trading now? I'd try calling a few businesses to see if they're open.

I've tried a couple, But from as far as i can tell no one stocks OEM coolant. An don't know if its worth putting anything else in temp for a week or so then another full flush an back to OEM

If your doing a full flush, just go to repco and buy some coolant. Tectaloy gold, is what I use.

If you flush the system and put in uncommon coolant from the auto store recommended by a guy who uses it in his daily corolla, you will be hurt when you hear from someone why you used something that is bad for your turbo boxer and not wait till you can get the oem stuff.

Mate, I've used tectaloy gold in my Subaru for over 4 years, never had a problem, so you don't have to fork out for OEM coolant.
