      I saw your DIY videos and they are great. I want to replace the engine and inverter coolant, but I am bot sure how many bottles of 1 gallon coolant I need for the job. Can you please suggest? Thank you!

        My prius has 100k coming, and I know it might be an overkill with the pump, but I figured since I am removing the coolant I would just go ahead and replace the pump.

        I've found one of the comment you left for 118K maintenance:

        spark plugs
        pcv valve
        EGR pipe cleaning
        engine and inverter coolant drain and refill
        Brake checks, lube sliding pins if haven't done so
        brake flush
        transmission drain and refill if haven't done so
        engine and cabin air filter
        HV battery fan clean
        and Throttle body cleaning.

        I did all that at except spark plugs and lube sliding pins at 95K

        you don't need to replace the WP, my prius is at 230k and its still on the original WP.

        As for those maintenance I've mention, yes do them all. For the removal of parts for the spark plugs, that's all you can do for those part removal is the spark plugs.

      Hi NutzAboutBolts i'm in the san francisco area and my 2012 toyota prius v got a engine code p0300 p0301 p0302 and coolant is low. I'm guessing its the head gasket. do you know any affordable mechanic or enthusiast that could fix this problem? thanks!

      can you please verify which Lasfit kit you used? Ultra bright or fanless? Please let me know. I really need to purchase a kit ASAP and I want the bright one.
