Washer fluid in the radiator

Home  \  Repairs & Maintenance  \  Washer fluid in the radiator

I accidentally put some windshield washer fluid in the radiator overflow because the caps were switched. :doh: I was wondering if this will cause a problem, and should I get the radiator flushed as soon as possible. I have very little mechanical experience, and no tools or space to do any work myself. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Caps were switched? Yeah, ok. You're a real dumbass, but you probably already know that.

If you only topped of the coolant level with washer fluid it won't really make a sh*ttin' bit of difference. If on the other hand you put in a large amount you need to get it out of there and refill with the proper coolant mix.

Ya gotta admit, it was a pretty stupid thing to do.
