1992 Toyota Tercel - How long does antifreeze last?

Antifreeze life? Changed antifreeze on my 92 toyota tercel 6years ago. It is not the long life stuff but still shows good on the test strips. Should I leave it alone as long as the test strips show it is good? I only drive it less than 1500 miles a year, I rebuilt the motor 8 yrs ago it is just under 200,000 miles.

I’d say you are probably OK for another 2 years. Coolant is not really a mileage thing but more of a time thing.
