Is Supertech 50/50 universal antifreeze okay to use in a 1996 saturn sl1? Also, how do you add antifreeze after the old has been drained?

Yes, that should be fine, especially if you have drained the system. Fill your rad, wait to see if it goes down on it's own then top up. Turn heater on full and start the car with the rad cap off. Keep adding until coolant isn't going down. Once the engine comes up to operating temperature, replace rad cap. Then shut down car and let it cool down. Then once it has cooled down, top up coolant reservoir to full mark.

Make sure rad cap is back on the rad before shutting down the car as it will overflow hot coolant all over if not...

Saturn keeps running hot and not holding antifreeze

Overheating problems are hard to solve so you have to go with probabilities and indications. You say that it is overheating and not holding antifreeze but you don't say where you are losing the antifreeze. If it is coming out the radiator pressure cap then I would start with the thermostat followed by the water pump and radiator. If it is coming out the side or bottom of the engine then I would suspect a cracked block or a blown head gasket. If it is coming out in the passenger compartment, then I would suspect the heater core or water lines to it.

Good Luck!

Warm the car up till the cooling fan comes on then about another 3 to 5 min. shut the engine off for about 10 min. keep repeating till the coolant flows. The upper radiator hose will get hot close to the radiator and the air from the fans is hot. Leave the radiator cap loose or off while doing this and keep the antifreeze full. Be very carefull antifreeze can go up to 230 degrees and servely burnt If you are getting air bubbles and the antifreez doesn't go down you have combustion getting into the cooling system. The most common reason for this is a blown head gasket.

Engine overheating. Engine light was coming on so saw that antifreeze was low. I got antifreeze and put in the resevior. I drove it for a while, ? maybe 4 days. Engine light was still coming on. Then...

Could be a lot of things. First check for leaks. Fill the system. If you have a radiator cap, take it off and make sure the radiator is full--not just the reservoir. Start the car and let it idle in park with the cap off until the car is warm--keep the radiator full. Then put the cap back on and watch for leaks. Let us know what you find. I have more tips at . Let me know if you have questions.

Radiator tank filling procedure

take off the radiator cap and fill the rad with antifreeze. start the montor and keep watching the level of the antifreeze and keep adding as necessary. when the termostat opens you sould shee a sudden drop in level.... keep adding antifreeze. squeezing the upper rad hose will help remove air bubbles. BE EXTREMELY CARE OF THE FAN AND OTHER MOVING PARTS TO PREVENT INJURY. after you are satisfied that you have added enough fluid put the rad cap back on. fill the overflow tank to the leven it indicates.... take it for a drive and let it cool down. open the rad cap and top of the fluid if necessay.
