Anybody flushed their coolant yet? I don't want to get into the discussion about GM long life coolant. In my opinion DexCool is not as good as Toyota Red, so flushing every 30k is not that big of a deal.
Maybe it is similar to Audi/VW fill.JHZR2 said:No guarantees that it is dexcool.
I went to the dealer to see what their coolant looked like, and it is long life coolant in a SAAB 4L jug. Has multilingual text on the back, and I believe it is a european product.
If it was dex, it liklely would have come in gallon jugs that look like those in the shelf of your favorite store.
Saab states every 4 years for fluid. I just sold a 1997 Nissan Altima with 205,000 miles on it. It had original brake fluid, and original front rotors! Although it did not have ABS, those brakes were the best I've have ever drivven....JHZR2 said:brake fluid should be done every 2 years, max... My BMW reccomends yearly.
I am considering just sucking all the fluid from the reservoir on the firewall every so often, replacing with new fluids to keep additive content up high, and keeping things fresh.
No, the car was used for a heavy commute to Chicago. Nissan makes good brakes on some cars.... I kept replacing pads and measuring the rotor and it was always in spec, did not need cutting or anything...I was amazed...thomjam said:did you coast to a stop or just never stop?
