John Mc :

Yes it will damage it. You can not mix dexcool with Ford antifreeze. You will need to flush out all the coolant and replace it. If you can tell me the year I can recommend the correct coolant for you.

John Mc :

Dexcool will gel up when mixed with other coolants.

It is a 2005 Lincoln LS with a V8

Your car uses Ford gold coolant. Here are the specs and the part number.

 

Motorcraft Premium Gold Engine Coolant VC-7-A

 

You can get a substitute at most parts stores just make sure to tell them your car takes gold.

How do I be sure that all the coolant is out of the car, so that it will not gel up when I add the new? I previously drained everything out before i put the orange stuff in

I would drain it out, fill it with water and let it warm up. Drain and repeat. Now it will be fine to fill with new coolant. When you add the new coolant add a 50/50 mix of water and coolant.
