How do I flush my Saturn cooling system?
I would like some specifics on flushing my 2003 L200 Saturn and also the recommended antifreeze. I used to have an SL2 and at the time I had purchased the manuals from Saturn But that was a long time ago and getting information like this is like looking for hens teeth. I know the flush called for a soapy solution but I don't remember the amount of soap or the exact procedures or what type of anti freeze. I'd like to do no harm.

You could do an expert job all by yourself if you could wait till Spring when there's no chance of freezing your cooling system... More

First off if you dont have a way of disposing of the old anti freeze then dont do it. You need to look at the owners manual and it should have all of the info you need for what type of antifreeze you need. And as far as a flushing agent go to the auto store and they sell all kinds. Hope this helped.

You shouldn't flush the cooling system unless you have a way to recover and properly dispose of the fluid. It is not just bad for the environment and toxic to animals, but illegal to drain any coolant and/or cooling system flush into a street or sewer drain. Have it done by a professional shop.
