Adding coolant to a 1992 Saturn is a energetic engagement that is crucial to the health of the vehicle. Coolant optimizes the engine and keeps it from over-heating. Downbeat damage can appear by driving a vehicle with low coolant coolant levels. Check coolant levels every one to two weeks whenever you check other fluids. Coolant costs between $10 and $15 and the maintenance requires no tools. Keep your Saturn running smoothly by keeping up with this simple task.
1. Make sure the car is turned off and the engine is cool.2. Open the hood by pulling on the release lever underneath the steering panel of the car. Push the hood up to its full open position and hold it in place with the tension bar.3.
The car needs to be turned off for about 15 to 20 minutes for the engine to cool to an appropriate level. Touch the engine hood. If it's hot, then wait a little longer. Coolant expands with heat so it's hard to get a proper reading when the engine is hot.
Locate the clear coolant tank on the passenger side of the vehicle in front of the wheel well.
4. Look at the side of the tank to find out what level the coolant is at. The coolant should be filled to the "Cool" line of the tank. If the levels are low, coolant needs to be added to the tank. Unscrew the cap on the tank and pour in coolant until it reaches the fill line. Using a funnel is optional to increase accuracy. Screw the lid back on the tank when finished.
5. Release the tension bar and close the hood.
