My 98 v70r just overheated an is leaking coolant out from around the turbo dnt have the money or tools to get in there right now but anyone know what could possibly b wrong without any pics or more detail maybe a hose? (I hope)
Yes....there is a 4" rubber jump hose from one cooling line to another. It is hidden from view under your turbo and you'd have to be under the car to see it. Happened to my wife's old car in traffic a couple years ago.
Ya there are two hoses coming from the firewall maybe the heater core? The Hose comes out and then does a u bend then it's leaking from the end closest to the engine. Looks like the previous owner tried using stop leak an it just fail on me. Sorry for the lack of knowledge I'm new to the Volvo scene
I have had the car since feb of this year an today I found a big stack of service records an found out that it had a rebuild on the engine an turbo from a place in California at 145,540 miles an now it reads 216,231 miles so I guess I have just over 70k miles on them both
Unless it was done some other time more recently, you're also due for a timing belt! (every 70K miles or 7 years) That's very important on these cars. Check the waterpump as well to ensure that it's not leaking and replace it if it is.
Ya I have a record of the timing belt being done at the beginning of last year. But I will check the water pump as of right now I see no leaks but I need to get a better look just in case. Thank you all for your help! This is a very useful forum. Has anyone used VIDAS? Thinking of getting it.
