Flushing coolant system and I bought all green and additive. Coolant is brown now with no tint. If it was yellow will it hurt to go gree?

Flush it all out and put some good ec-1 rated ELC from fleetrite, rotella, cat etc. Most ELCs are Red.

Just a basic 01 F350 CCLB SRW -Good from a far but far from good

Yea, return the green. It was Yellow (Gold really) and you don't want to put the silica based green in it now...

Tubular's giving you good advice, ELC is what you want to flush & replace it with

If you are going to change coolant color (type) you must flush out the old. DO NOT mix color/types!! if you are going through the trouble of flushing might as well put the good stuff in there! ELC!
