I just went out to my car while on lunch at work and discovered a 3 foot puddle of antifreeze under it. Does anyone know where the radiator fill up is? I looked at it and can't find a spot to fill it besides the overflow tank. Luckily i keep a gallon of antifreeze as well as oil on my trunk. I want to go to a parts store after work and get a bottle of radiator stop leak. Does anyone know where the fill up is? Is it ok to put that stuff right in the overflow fill up? It is a 1995 850 Turbo. Thank you!

Ya im friends with Rob, haha... also +1 to the rad stopleaks causing problems, theyll also block up the coolant passages on the turbo and cause it to over heat.

Re: radiator (canam77)

I just had to do the radiator on mine and it was actually not to bad. I did it myself and i am in no way a mechanic. There are some good guides over on Volvospeed.com
