Funny but not funny. NASCAR Number 43 has a RTOD on his instrument cluster. Pretty funny that they chose to use that symbol. Oct 4, 2020

      How am I able to DM you? I would like to ask you something since you are the Prius 4th gen swap OG.

        I guess my question is. My car could be running normal but I don’t know what coolant lines should be hot etc. How do I check to ensure the coolant system is doing it job and I routed it correctly. I’m a noob I know

        The first thing that I suggest is get either a “hybrid aware” scan tool or an ELM327 that you can plug into the diagnostic port. That will allow you the ability to monitor coolant temps thru the live data output to the diagnostic connector. If your highest coolant temp is 203F or below, the fans kick on and off, and you are not getting the temp light or a check hybrid system warning, you should be good to go.

        Ok cool. Thanks for the help. My fan kicks on normally. I can hear the idle slightly change when I turn my interior heater fans up. I’m gonna use my heat scan gun this weekend to check the hoses. I noticed the small hoses to the throttle body get hot the quickest and stay that way. It doesn’t fluctuate.

      224k on car. 11k post swap. 2100 mile post oil change. It still looks like the oil is brand new. No issues.

      So a friend, who has been a “Prius Hater” from the day I got mine, is now looking for one for his 18 yo daughter. #Priusconverter #winning

      Filled up today. 19.6 miles in, showing 66.7 mpg on the guess-o-meter. Going to try for 700 mpt this tank.

      5200 miles on oil, no measured usage. Looks like March and September will be my oil change months as long as I have my Prius.

      I feel like a rebel, I have driven 200 miles past the illumination of “Oil Maintenance Required”. Going to tackle that tomorrow or Friday.

      The “oil maintenance required soon” message is now illuminated. The oil looks clean as a whistle and it is still full. Almost 8k post swap.

      It’s been 2100 mile since last oil change. No measurable oil usage. Mid to high 40’s mpg. Nothing significant to report.

      300 miles for a trip. 51.9 mpg average.

      Finally the oil is “dirty” enough to see on the stick. 2800 miles and it’s still full.

      I still have to wrap a paper towel around dipstick to check the oil. Too clean to see on the dipstick!

      398 miles and 13 days since last fuel up. 60.7 displayed mpg. I should have bought this car when I got my last one.

      1400 Miles since I bought my 2010. Getting 48.1mpg this tank of gas. The longer I drive it, the better the mileage gets. I Love It.
