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.
The 1997 Saturn used dexcool antifreeze. The chemical compounds are different and should never be mixed, as the engine will no longer cool properly.
Anti-freeze that is compatible with aluminium engines.
To change the antifreeze on a 2003 Saturn Ion-3, locate the drain plug on the bottom of the radiator. Drain the liquid into a pan before refilling it.
Use the Gold antifreeze. It lasts longer and does not cause corrosion to the cooling system.
Match the color of your antifreeze to the new one you buy unless it states its good for all types.
No vehicle actually burns antifreeze. If the antifreeze level in your Saturn seems to be going down, it's because of a leak.Possible antifreeze leak locations are:Coolant hoses.Radiator cap.Water pump.Heater core.Head gasket.Cracked head or block.Find out where the leak is occurring and repair it.
Autozone/ advanced auto usually has antifreeze that goes with either kind. I suggest that.
You will need to replace the heater core.
Boil over? As in antifreeze? that's probly a blown headgasket
Have it checked out soon and don't let the engine overheat!
A 50/50 mix of distilled water and Dexcool antifreeze.
into the coolant reservoir on the passenger side of the engine bay by removing the cap
you got a gas line leaking. get it checked soon
GM Dexacool or any other brand that indicates it is "dexacool" compatible
Blown headgasket or an idiot pouring oil in the wrong hole.
Phosphate-free ethylene glycol coolant mixed 50/50 with water
for an S series from empty it is about 7 qts. 50/50 water/coolant.
Dexcool don't use any other type
The 1999 Saturn engine uses dexcool type coolant. This coolant is different form other types and cannot me mixed with another type.
Are you sure that isn't antifreeze and if so that would indicate the radiator is defective. There is a transmission oil cooler in the radiator.
