A Little Bit of Windshield Wiper Fluid in the Surge Tank?!
Hi, Today, being as groggy as I was, i accidentally put a little bit of windshield wiper fluid in the surge tank in my cobalt, it honestly wasn't a lot (prolly less than a whole cup) but I just dont want my car to explode. Think I will be ok?
I don't know if it would be worth the time and money involved in flushing it, since it probably won't hurt the car at all.
But basically, what you do, is drain the coolant out of the radiator hose, and turn the engine on (probably should do it when it's cold, and hasn't been started for a long time) till no more coolant comes out, then go ahead and shut it off. Then you can put the hose back on, tighten it, and fill it all with coolant. Might have to fill it a couple times, since the engine has to be filled and will suck down a lot of the coolant.
