It's safe. I don't recommend drinking it however. Keep an eye on the condition of the fluid in the rad and reservior. Flush it every 36,000 miles or 3 years-regardless of the manufacturers input.

What kind of antifreeze do you use in your 1998 Jaguar?

Jaguar REQUIRES an "Aluminum Safe formulation", and my local Jag mechanic recommends a chemical/pressure flush every 2 years. Any high quality, name brand that is marked as "Safe for aluminum" is sufficient. A chemical reaction can occur inside the coolant system with low quality antifreeze/coolant which can cause corrosion and pitting of aluminum components. The "purple" antifreeze is aluminum safe and non-toxic to prevent injury to you family pets should a leak develope.

Water can be used in an emergency but there is no corrosion protection like a mixture of antifreeze and preferably distilled water ( until the corrosion protection in the antifreeze is " worn out " ) Also , adding just straight water will dilute the antifreeze so the temperature at which the mixture freezes will not be as low

Any antifreeze that doesn't contain nitrates or phosphates (which can corrode the metal and break down rubber seals in your system) can be used. Many regular automotive brands will state if their product is safe for motorcycles. If it doesn't, don't use it. You can also play it safe and get motorcycle antifreeze at your local bike shop. There are a few exceptions with some of the big bucks foreign bikes. Follow your owners manual to always be sure.

Is it safe to drive vehicle when there is oil in antifreeze reserve and Saturn ION?

If there is motor oil in the antifreeze reservoir there is a good chance there is also antifreeze in the motor oil. This condition is probably the result of a bad head gasket or a cracked head. Antifreeze mixing with motor oil is a recipe for disaster for the engine. Have a trusted mechanic diagnose the situation soon as possible to hopefully avoid even more costly repairs.

Read the owner's manual and buy any antifreeze that meets the requirements listed. The manual calls for Ford Premium Cooling System Fluid, but any water/ethylene glycol based antifreeze solution should be OK. Use the regular green antifreeze, mixed at least 50/50 with water, but never over 70% antifreeze, or just buy it pre-mixed. Make sure it is safe to use with aluminum engine parts. I use Prestone.
