What do other NG900 owners run as coolan t? I can't get a straight an swer from various searches in forums online. I think the original coolant was Pentofrost NF, and later years of the 9-3 got DEX-COOL. https://pnrstatus.vip/
In any case, I will be flushing my system this weekend and the previous owner had the standard green prestone in there. Am I overthinking this and just any coolant would be fine provided I flush beforehand? https://sarkariresult.onl/

The original coolant was BASF G48. It's similar to Pentofrost NF, but not quite the same. I agree with Mimi that the green stuff is fine, but G48 is available at BMW and Mercedes dealers if you want it.

Proper choices are Pentosin Blue, G05, or G48. I don't know who the sellers would be in your country aside from the G48 Jeremy mentioned.

I would not use dexcool in an older car that didn't come with it from the factory. I would not use "green" except in an emergency.

Ain't nothing wrong with most modern green. Modern Prestone for example is WAY more advanced than ancient G05 or G48. The stuff that went into legacy '80s green hasn't been made in decades.

I've got Pentosin Blue in almost all my T5 Saabs and my C900. Dex in my 9-5's, although once I feel the need to flush I'll be putting Blue in that too. Great coolant.
