Rx400h freeze plug sealant


Recommended Posts

Hi all I have a leaking freeze plug near to the oil filter, have to top up coolant every week in the last few. 
 

I have found the part from a Toyota dealer nearby but they said they don’t sell the sealant for the plug. 
 

Any recommendation on what is a good sealant to use on this? 
 

I have read using Permatex but drying time is 24hours, a bit too long... 

And all the Toyota FIPG black I found online are from international sellers and pricey...

thanks

The FIPG black 1282b is meant to be suitable for the pink long life coolant. The more standard black FIPG is more suited to oil and may break down after a number of years being exposed to the coolant although I suspect many dealers wouldn't use the correct one.

If you ask a Toyota dealer for 08826-00100, are they saying they cannot supply it in this country?

Rang a dealer, the 1282b is being superseded but original price is: £105.

😅

the new one to replace it is kind of still being tested and won’t be available for a while. 
 

I went to Threebond website, seems like 1282b is no longer available. But the 1207 series (see below) at least mentioned coolant resistance,

especially 1207B, LLC resistance! But I thought 1207B is the usual standard black FIPG. 
 

This is confusing... anyway don’t think I can get any 1282b, will aim for 1207B as my best shot. 
 

anyone has other idea?

yeah 1207B is the general one used on the engine. It is meant to ok with normal coolant but the long life variety can break it down over time. I think if you use it you will be ok for a number of years. I believe you are meant to let it cure for at least two hours before letting oil or coolant contact it.

Yes will let it cure for longer before topping up with coolant. Needs to get the car for MOT too. So will try and get this sorted.
