I accidently put windshield washing fluid in the radiator resovoir. It doesn't look like it has gone out of the resovoir though. It is ok if I just drain the resovoir and replace it with coolant?

Asked by Aug 07, 2014 at 01:19 PM about the 2014 Toyota Venza LE V6 AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Do I have to use toyota coolant or is any quality coolant ok to use?

1 Answer

You will be fine if no 'soap' water got in to radiator. Just drain overflow thoroughly. Then, especially if you never started the car, when cold, just add a little distilled water in to tank. If radiator is topped off, the tank should be no more than 1/4 full cold, so that little but won't throw off the mix enough to matter. Then, there is a difference of opinion about what coolant. http://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=1141798 ...but really should use Toyota coolant, does not mean you have to buy it at dealer, just read labels 'suitable for Toyota vehicles'
