    Hi, I have a '92 Saturn SL1 with what appears to be a leaking upper
    radiator hose. I'm going to change the hose. How much coolant should I buy
    and what type should I use? I bought some Prestome premix non phospphate
    coolant to top it off then realized it was leaking too much.

    Do I need to drain the radiator or can I replace the hose then top off the
    radiator? How coolant does the car use?

    According to SaturnFans, (try Google, you will find amny answers) the
    s-series takes 7 quarts of colant. You can use Prestone, the green stuff is
    what you want.

    Flush the system first and make sure the green ethylene glycol based
    antifreeze/coolant is phosphate free. When done, bleed the air from the
    system and then crush and add two sealant pellets available from the Saturn
    dealer .
