Thank you both for replying I am going to flush it on Tuesday! What could possibly happen if i didn't flush it out?? I've done a little bit of research and didn't find anythingspecifically answering my question besides saying it will cause sludge!
I've seen the results of mixing incompatible coolants before. It's not pretty. I have no idea how much "fun" it is replacing the heater core on this car but on the VWs I've had brought to me with this problem it's an all-day job to get the dash out in order to get to it. Yeah -- the procedure is basically "remove entire dashboard"
Oh, and new radiator too, and and and and -- and you're never sure if you got it all out, and if you plug a cylinder head passage or something like that you can roast the engine.
Its just so confusing cause i have done so so much research about it the last 2 days and i just have gotten mixed answers, like it says the orange and green coolant cant be mixed because it will eventually create that sludge but this coolant is yellow! I have searched if the 2 coolants were compatible and its really just unclear all it tells me is that the Go5 is a virgin ethylene glycol so does that mean it has the same stuff just more or less of some ingredients?! So would that mean they are compatible? My head literally hurt from reading so much yesterday!! And i am by no means questioning any of your judgments at all I am honestly genuinely curious about all these questions!! Thank you guys so much for all the info really, i am by no means a mechanic at all and appreciate the help!!!
I also have a 2006 infiniti, it was overheating and (my grandpa) just had to change the radiator and temp sensor and all that bs so i definitely know how stressful and long that stuff takes and making sure all that air is outta the system!! It's exhausting!!
2012 Mazda 6 shakes the steering wheel while under braking. I have updated the rotors, new calipers, and new brake line hoses but still shakes. only thing i havent changed is the pads but they look ok. what else could it be
First post here so go easy on me! I have a 2013 Mazda 6 SkyActiv-D in the UK with 60K miles on it. Last Sunday the Low Oil Pressure warning came on suddenly whilst driving and has remained on ever since, at whatever RPM the engine is. Oil is full, but I changed the Oil and Filter...
Hi everyone! I purchased my 6 Sport Wagon yesterday and loving it so far!
Hunted Craigslist for months and finally struck gold! 2004 with 140k. Well kept by the previous (and original) owner. A few things for me to work on, nothing major. Will be a nice project and a fun drive 😊
