it should not hurt anything at all and will be ok to drive for a bit

i would schedule an appointment at your local shop and have a coolant flush performed which will remove all the coolant and clean out the power steering fluid in the coolant system and add all new coolant

if you have any questions please ask as i do not get credit for my work until you rate us here at justanswer
