Hi there. It is not advisable to mix these two coolants together as they will tend to react with each other and cause some build up in the cooling system. Being that you only added 16 ounces you should be fine. If possible it would be a good idea to drain out the system and refill it, but you will be fine if you leave it in there. If you want to have your coolant changed, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to you to [change your coolant] https://www.yourmechanic.com/services/cooling-system-flush
