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!!

The car was left at an airport for 3 weeks. When I returned to pick up the car, the parking staff
informed me that the battery had become flatened and that they had jump started it, as they had left
the car running, I drove it home approx 100 mls.
Later that day...

When I park it beeps as I pull close to anything, and a red area shows where I am close to something and how close it is on the dashboard screen.

Just got back from getting my tire patched at Tires Plus, and they’re telling me that when they were inspecting it afterwards that my valve covers were leaking and that I was looking at a $700+ fix. Any way for a newbie to check this out for myself? Or should I go to my usual mechanic?
