Leak in radiator at the passenger side must remove plastic shield under car to diagnose and localize the exact source of the leak. Radiator needs replacement to remedy the problem.

I had to add coolant three times within 10 days. The second time, the "coolant low light came back on within 20 minutes and then I saw it leaking from the bottom of the car so, I am not sure but will be taking to the shop tomorrow so stay tuned.

I brought my 2003 volvo s60 awd to the dealership for a recall on my fuel pump that was extended to 150,000 miles for this make and other years not sure which other years are covered. They ended finding other things wrong of course you go in for something free they find something else to bill you especially since I needed my inspection sticker to pass. Well after I agreed to do my bushing on both my front control arms. I also paid for a fuel sensor which I thought was reasonably being they were not charging me for labor. They also said I had a leak in my radiator which just the radiator for volvo is $700 dollars not including labor. Well trying to swallow that one but I already see after I change this fuel pump on this mercedes today. I will be getting into another new project. Volvo isn't a race car someone explain why they would use aluminum and plastic for material like a radiator. "Just to hurt our pockets" Nissan does the samething with there cars Nissan quest has a serpentine chain yea sounds stronger than a belt right wrong the guard that holds it in is made out of PLASTIC! GOOD LUCK GUYS!
