I'm planning on flushing my cooling system very soon since my Coolant Level Low light has been coming on. I've read that many of you recommend using Mercedes-Benz coolant. I was searching for info on coolants and came about EVANS NPG+™ COOLING at http://www.evanscooling.com/html/auto1.htm. Has anyone every used this in their Saab before? Are there any other coolants people recommend? I just want to make sure I use a coolant that won't harm my 1995 SET. Any information or comments are much appreciated.

I had my system flushed and replaced coolant with Zerex G-05 (the yellow coolant recommended for Daimler Benz). After some research on BOBISTHEOILGUY.com, I was convinced it is the best coolant available today. I replaced the DEXCool fluid. I don't know any mechanics that have a good thing to say about DEXCool.

I also added a bottle of Hy-Per Lube Super Coolant. Test data shows it is superior to Redline Water Wetter as far as corrosion prevention is concerned.

The G-05 has stayed very clean in the 10K since I flushed. As I expected, there is no difference in Operating Temperature, as it is regulated by the thermostat, but I believe corrosion protection is superior.

I feel the G-05 really is good for 100K miles so I wasn't interested in a "lifetime" coolant like Evans.
