1995 Volvo 850 Turbo
I'm trying to track down this leak. I just swapped the radiator car isn't running hot but I just noticed coolant on the heat shield for the turbo. Where the heck can it be coming from?
Do they have a diagram like that for the 850s.Could be a few places...
My heater core Lines would squirt water only durring WOT (I guess the PSI cause a small Pinhole leak) It took me months to figure it out. I noticed completly by accident when i was looking for an exhaust leak leaning over the motor had someone rev it and the car spit in my face... I was like WTF. just sitting and letting the car run I'd never leak water. they would be Number 18 and 19 on that diagram. I would suggest that if it is them you go ahead and swap the heater core also. Once I changed them and the correct PSI was put into the heater core it blew up also...
If its on the other side of the heat sheild then its probably the small rubber hose that connects the coolant tank to the hard pipes for the turbo. the diagram I posted is for a newer car, but on 850/x70 the area around #14 and #15 is a rubber hose. check that also.
If you read I said a SHORT TIME, meaning a few days. I don't suggest using this as a long solution. Only to get you back up and running for a few days. ANd only if the rest of the hose looks to be in good shape.Don't do this. Cutting the hose causes it to be at an angle and old heater hoses are so worn from excessive heat it's not worth it to replace the motor. I have a spare set of heater hoses if you want them. I had them for my 850 and ended up just bypassing it
