Default New owner questions.

Hi all.

I just bought a Saab 9000 CSE - turbo 2.3. I have a few questions to begin with. I'm going to change the oil, filter and coolant for peace of mind.

1. What type of oil is recommended for the car? Will mineral be OK?

2. How much oil does it hold?

3. Mine is 'LOW' on the dipstick; how much oil is there between full and low on the dipstick?

4. How do you drain the cooling system? How do you check the coolant level? In my last car's I've just pulled off the bottom radiator hose yet on this car I can't see one. At the moment it looks like there is only water in the car.

5. The car has a shuddering under brakes, I haven't had the wheels off but I'm suspecting a warped disc as the shuddering slows down with car speed. Is this common?

Being my first Saab, is there anything in particular to watch out for?

What tyre pressures do you run? The owners manual didn't come with the car, hence the basic questions.

All help would be great. Thanks,
