Hey scotty I need your help.
I have a 2011 Honda Civic 1.8L automatic. It's done 109,000 KM's.
Over a month ago I had the coolant flushed at a radiator and muffler shop. Never had problems with the guy when he worked on my Ford focus. My wife was driving the Honda for the past month (it's her car) and she never checks oil and coolant.
I decided to have a look this Saturday and when I opened the radiator cap there was foam in it and the coolant turned white it was dark green when he poored it in.
Went back to him he flushed it again and put some cheap green glowing coolant in it temporarily. I'm going back there this Sunday he said he will have a great coolant for the car but not the original type2 Honda coolant.
The one he used that turned white is called eko 50/50. Should I be concerned with what happened? Is there any way that damaged the engine/Cooling system? I told my wife to pay extra attention to the temperature gauge and she says on the highway the temp is always very low so I took it for a drive and even after 40 minutes it was around the 60 degrees Celcius. Only in the city it goes to 85ish. Which is probably the thermostat not closing, Could that be caused by the bad coolant?
What repercussions could this have?
