Your best bet is to drain the whole system. There is a drain plug on the bottom of the radiator (If you're standing in front of your car it will be on your left facing the engine all the way down.) You should be able to open the plug by squeezing your arm down there, if not then jack the front of the car and there should be a dust cover on the bottom front with a hole where you can get your hand through. Make sure the car is completely cool before you do this and don't forget to tighten the plug back up. Also if you have a threaded plug (after market radiator) DO NOT LOSE IT! I did and it was a pain to replace.

-Good luck!

Any type of antifreeze will work in a 99 Saturn SL1. Many people recommend using Prestone Antifreeze for cars that are older than ten years.
