I'm trying to do a radiator flush but I'm not sure what coolant to use
Squeaking noise
First, my battery died. Once I jumped it and got it going again, my car was running fine for about 20 minutes. Then all the sudden when I was going about 30, my car slowed down on its own (no matter how hard I pushed the gas peddle) and it would not excel past like 5 miles per hour. Almost all my lights on my dash started to come on. It sounded and felt like it was trying to "kick" back into gear but couldn't. It finally slowed down until it stopped. However previously, I could be going 50 miles per hour and it would slow down BY ITSELF to a lower speed and wouldn't excel even if I pushed the gas peddle. It didn't quit because it would eventually "kick" back into gear.
I bought my car new and have never seen this happen to a car. I have hundred thousand miles on my car now. the pealing started 4 months ago and I have been told nothing can been done. I have had many cars over the years and have never seen this. I was told everything works on a point system and was asked if my parents ever owned a kIA My parents have been dead for 20 yrs. I was then asked if any other members of my family owned one. I'm 70 yearse their for 4 hrs. crazy. I do take my car to be serviced every 3 months at my own place and if anything needs to be done it is, and at a lower price then what KIA charges. I was told the more points I got the better my chances were to have something done. Really? The DM was not helpful at all and would not ever suggest what i could do. My next step after this will be the TV station.

ok So I have 2011 Kia soul the car was turning on with no issues but the battery had low juice so... I charged the battery with it in the car and I left it on all day and night until the following day by mistake. Needless to say I fried the ECU and the battery. Since then the car cranks but does not turn over to start. I have air/ fuel / spark but does not start. Since then I have replaced the battery, ECU, and the Crankshaft and Camshaft sensors since it was giving the P0016 code. Now every time I clear the codes and crank it turns on, but once I turn it off when I go back up to turn it on it would just crank but not turn over until I clear the codes or jump start by taking out a coil plug. Please Help on how to fix this mess.
It drives sluggish, Shake when I hit the breaks. Making a putt putt sound when I try starting,have to jump it.
