Probably YES, but it will depend on HOW MUCH! If you have completely FILLED the coolant system with it, then NO - drain it completely and refill with the correct solution!

    Nothing in wiper fluid is actually harmful to the coolant system, which is all metal and rubber, quite compatible. Too much wiper fluid may just cause excess foaming in the radiator, in which case drain and reflll

I just wanted to know where to pour the antifreeze in a 1196 toyota camry. I know I should pour it in the radiator or something but I'm not sure where that is?

Hi, coolant goes into the reservoir pictured below. There is a different reservoir for the windshield washer fluid. There is also a much smaller reservoir for the brake fulid. That one is in the right rear of the engine compartment, just in front of the driver. Be careful not to put coolant in the brake or washer fluid reservoir. Thanks for using FixYa.

Accidently put a small amount about a cup full of windshield wiper fluid in an already pretty full g12 reservoir of my 2003 Audi A6.Have not started the car yet.Do I have to get it fushed or will it be...

I know it doesn't sound like much, but, that is a very nice car that you have, and there are many sensors that could be damaged by the amonia in the washer fluid. This is what I would do.
You don't need to flush the whole cooling system, but, you want to try and empty out the coolant reservoir. You, or some can just pull the hose of the bottom of the reservoir and let it drain, or, some people might use something like a turkey baster to draw the fluid out of the top.

It may not hurt anything, but, I wouldn't want to take a chance unless I absolutely had to.

Good luck!

I have a toyota camry 2003 if i let it set for a

What color is the smoke ?
Greyish means coolant is leaking into cylinders( Bad Head gasket)
Bluish means oil is leaking into the cylinders
Black means car is running rich.
If greyish look at coolant resivoir for traces of oil ( usually milky kind of substance) could be tranny fluid or motor oil mixing with coolant depending on whether the vehicle is an automatic and if so is the ATF cooler leaking.
keep me posted Good Luck

Type of power steering fluid for 2001 toyota camry

Power steering fluid - Dexron 2 or 3 automatic transmission fluid. Yes transmission fluid. And while you are at it check the fluid level in the transmission.
Since you got the hood up, check the brake fluid, wiper fluid, radiator fluid, battery fluid, oil level.

Should I change the tranny filter & fluid on my 2003 Camry?

Here's a link to Toyota customer service number & a spot where yo can e-mail your questions to Toyota as well. (Just for piece of mind) It kind of threw me off for a minute too, but in their scheduled maintenance, (which should be in your owners manual) they only show fluid changes, as far as I went to 110,000 miles. Perhaps if you, re-post to attention "ToyotaEd" he can shed some light on it for you.

Have a light on dashboard that looks like windshield wipers

Check your windshield washer fluid level.  The washer fluid tank has a level sensor in it.  That could be why that light came on.
