Q: Coolant mixed, car started running differently

Hello. Mixing different “types” of antifreeze solutions will not make a car run “differently.” However, manufacturers of antifreeze do NOT recommend mixing with other “types” or brands due to possible chemical incompatibility, which will shorten the effective lifetime of corrosion inhibitor packages in the antifreeze. You should thoroughly flush your system and refill with Pentosin Antifreeze Part# 8114107.
