engine cooling system flush cause if you put windshield washer fluid in the cooling system then the WWF will not take the heat from the engine block and your car will not cool right if you understand

Probably you didn't get enough in there to make any noticeable difference in engine operating temperature. You should do a coolant flush and replacement so that the washer fluid doesn't break down the coolant and cause cooling system deposits or corrosion.
