When the ASC and Trac warnings come on the ABS module has detected a fault. It could be a problem with one of the wheel sensors, module or wiring. We will need to have the vehicle scanned with a compatible scan tool. For the coolant yes the green coolant will need to be flushed out.

The green coolant can cause some damage. Let me know.
