I have the same car and had same problem. Your water pump needs to be replaced. That is where the leak is. Not a major job nor that expensive. I recommend using the green 2-year coolant vs. the orange 5-year coolant. The 5 year coolant does not protect well against cavitation (exploding bubbles) which is what caused your water pump leak. (You can research this on the I-net). The standard 2-yr coolant does protect against cavitation.

If you are getting power to the unit and you hear it clicking and making a sound when you hit the eject button, the this means that a CD is jammed in the track and while it was changing it got stuck and now causes you to see an ERROR message. What you do is while hitting the eject button, wiggle the CD MAGAZINE up and down and side ways. This will cause the CD to fall into place and your magazine will pop out. KennyV
You don't really need to flush it out. Most of the time it's a 50/50 coolant/water ratio. Check the bottles - often coolant is sold pre-diluted so you can just dump it in. If not, mix it equally with water and add it until it reaches the full mark (or the top of the radiator) and you're good.
Without seeing it its hard if nigh on impossible to say what it is and what it would cost labour wise .sometimes though i have got away with a smear of instant gasket over the gasket leak if applied to warm engine and left overnight
if the pump is leaking then it needs replacing it sounds like someone in the past has introduced glycol based coolant in to a oat. organic acid tech coolant system THEY DO NOT MIX and go like brown jelly and block things up like heater/ac systems it needs a good flush using a cooling system flushing adative
