I have a 2014 Ford Fusion Energi and the coolant in the reservoir for the inverter is turning or looks yellow. The regular coolant for the engine is still a nice orange color. The car has 92,000 miles and it runs great but just am concerned that its a different color for the inverter. Also, I have looked high and low and do not really see a diy on how to change the inverter fluid. I know that there are tons of Prius guides and this is really important to keeping the hybrid electrical system healthy. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.

I did a partial drain and fill of a gallon after 50k miles, and it drained from that reservoir too. I think the color change isn't a huge concern, but you're due for coolant change now I think.

Sounds good did you undo the plug underneath the car? I am assuming its kinda like the prius in design.

There a drain underneath the front shield, not the same one as the eng oil, but its a real pain in the butt to get to, I had to also loosen a bracket that goes across just under the radiator, but if you have a hose to put on to drain then its not too bad.
