however more frequent intervals will not hurt anything!

I have a 2005 corolla CE with around 50,000 miles..i bought it with 30,000 miles on it. How often do i need to do a coolant flush? I searched online and it says refer to the manual and i don't have one...any ideas? i live in kansas so it gets pretty cold here so not sure if that makes a difference at all..
The 05+ have the super long life coolant, the pink prediluted coolant, and can easily go 60K miles. Some people replace the thermostat every other fluid change.

Coolant should be changed about every 30,000 miles/24 months. Some coolant can last longer and can go for 45,000 miles/36 months.
I don't have the manual for your year car, but these figures would work. More frequent changes might cost more but would not hurt.
Hope this helps.

Do dealers keep any history on the cars?
thanks too all for your replies..definately informative..i think i'm going to wait till i reach 60K miles...i guess, since i bought the car with 30K miles on it, don't know if the dealership replaced it..but, i might just wait till i hit 60K to do it..have another 8K miles to go..
It probably is not possible to find the previous owner and ask them.
You should be OK going another 8K before changing it, although it would not hurt to do it sooner.

If the vehicle was serviced at more than 1 dealer, they may or not have access to the history.
Non-Diluted (red?) is about $21/gallon
50-50 coolant (pink?) is about $25/gallon
(at my local dealer).

every couple of years or every 50K is a good idea.
Zerex G-05 and Peak 50/50 or prestone 50/50 are alternatives as well

I just choose to do it simply as a preventive maintenance thing. If I change it out every 5 years will I have a problem? Who knows. I just choose to change it out early in the hopes that I wont have a coolant related issue down the road. I figure $20-30 for fresh coolant and fresh additives every two years, i can live with that
