2007 Rebuild: Coolant Problem
So guys...Ive recently purchased a 2007 with the 2.3 and auto tranny. It is salvage, just got back from the frame shop, and Ive just finished reassembling it so I can paint it monday. One problem. Guy at the frame shop had to drain all the coolant to replace the core support. Ive ran into a little trouble. I picked up a gallon of coolant, and Some distilled water. Went ahead and after reassembling everything, decided to go ahead and fill the system. The problem? My system calls for the Gold or yellow colored antifreeze, and I did not know this until i looked at the manual. After I realized this, I ran to the garage to drain it, because I had put in green. The truck was not ran for over 5 minutes with the green coolant in. I went ahead and flushed it, and its draining as I type. Do you all think I did any damage? Peace
