You are in the Toyota Yaris
What is this discussion about?

Only joking, (somewhat), but seriously, use the spec'd coolant.
#73 of 80 Trouble starting in cold?
Jan 16, 2007 (8:08 pm)
My 2007 Yaris (bought in June) is perfect...I love her!
But, I do notice that she's slow to start in cold weather. She turns over several times, then finally starts. And one it took awhile and black smoke came out.
Anyone else having this problem? We've had relatively warm weather so far, so I'm a little nervous about when it's way below freezing!
(I also have the transmission thing that others talk about here...)

yes, as a matter of fact i have noticed this. also, my car (when in netural at traffic lights and such) seems to 'shake' a little. i dont know, its hard to explain, its like when i start letting off the clutch in gear and not hitting the gas and it starts the beginning stages of stall out.
anyways, i took it to the dealer to address both issues, and they said nothing was wrong. so i guess slow starts in the cold is just a fact of life w/ the yaris. i wouldnt worry

I have noticed the same problem with my 2007 Toyota Yaris. Using just Amoco/BP gas seem to help.
#79 of 80 First Oil Change for new Yaris?
Apr 13, 2012 (9:07 pm)
I guess I'm old-school, I know the maintenance schedule says to change the oil at 5,000 miles but this seems like an awfully long time to go before the first oil change for my 2012 Yaris LE. I've never gone longer than 3,300 miles for an oil change before for any of my previous vehicles.
Right now I'm at 2,050 miles on the odometer - I guess the stuff you hear about metal particles floating around from the engine being broken in doesn't apply to today's cars, right?
Most of my driving is stop and go -

No it doesn't.
Mine is at 4700 miles now, will probably get its first oil change next week if I get the time....
