    Default Suggest coolant for 2.0 D Corolla?

    Dear Fellows,

    I need your help regard the matter of choosing coolant brand and how to use it? Is it safe to use coolant in Diesel engine? How much difference appears after pouring coolant in radiator?(At the moment heat nidel reaches middle of heat gauge, if I press accelerator paddle to gain speed(120 to 135+) it minor jumps half nidel up to next bar *like it stick constantly on 5 if paddle press hard then it comes to 5.2 to 5.5*)

    Does it increase changes in A/C cooling system?

    Few more question out of topic,

    How to prevent engine heat from engine cabin to seating cabin? is it easy to compact seating cabin from it?

    what is the price of original A/C Compressor? compressor magnet replace due to malfunction in magnet it reduces gas after few days, so if i accelerator then it feels like something cool. is it possible that way it leaks gas because of other magnet fitted in compressor or is it because of leakage in lines?
    what is the service charges of Diesel Pump and nozzles?
    what is the price of timing belt which last long? not changed since purchased it's 230k on odo
    what is the price of Air filter plastic box? mines tighten clips get lose.


    I will highly appreciate all your suggestions and comments. Thanks

    Use a good diesel rated coolant some coolant could start cavitation in radiator due to diesel engine shocks caltex orange long life coolant can be used in diesel or Toyota pink coolant is good too a bit pricy though

    About temp needle at such speed a bit over cooling can occur as fresh air from grill cools coolant nicely but overheating means either radiator is rusty or t.valve is missing
