Anyone notice on a New Toyota vehicle, when opening the radiator cap, the coolant appears to look like rust color when it is actually not. Also look inside or the radiator, it appears to have some kind or additive or sediment? Because it does not look clear.

Normal ... I saw the same thing right after changing coolant and using the pink formula. In a clear bottle the new coolant looks light red/pink, but looking down inside the radiator cap neck neck it looks dark rusty color.

I notice a similar oddity on our Taurus. In the bottle, it looks purplish. From the jug, its Orange.

Ford used a Bar's tablet in each new car, maybe Toyota does similiar.

But did yours look clear down the radiator? Mines does not look clear, looks like there are bunch of debris floating around.
