My 2001 Ford Taurus has no coolant in the reservoir. I just bought it from the dealer and had to drive a far distance before I could check fluids. The coolant tank appears to be stained yellow/gold, but the manual says green coolant only. Do you recommend a flush before I add new 50/50 green coolant mixture? (I will mix the coolant/distilled water myself, not a premix). I asked a Ford service tech if he believes previous owner had yellow/orange coolant in it, he said it may be stained from rust, or the Ford "Gold" coolant that was being transitioned in during these model years (early 2000's?). Any advice would be appreciated, cheers
