Saab coolant should come in a > saab logo bottle. \ I know this has been talked about before in many threads, but it's still confusing to me what color coolant goes which what model/year. Some people say blue/red some green, some pink, etc. In my case I called up two dealers and they both said they only put in green for a 1999, 9-3 (B204L). I *is* GM stuff clearly indicated on the jug (AC Delco). That's what I put in now. I would change it (since 2 flushes never hurt) to a more "Saabish" coolant if I'd new what to get for sure, yet you see my dilemma. Any suggestions? Thanks, Ben
