JEEP LIBERTY COOLANT PROBLEM

2005 Jeep Liberty

What would happen to the engine if windshield washer fluid was put in the coolant reservoir, the engine was NOT running, the reservoir was then drained and coolant was then added into the reservoir? The line had only coolant in it, and the vehicle was able to run for an approximate 12 miles.

Nothing. Washer solvent is water with a cleaning concentrate that would not damage any component in the cooling system
