2004 Volvo S80 Question: My coolant leaks I have to fill it up every week, my power steering fluid must

get a cooling system pressure test to determine source of leak

No common denominator except that you need your fluids checked on a regular basis. Have a shop pressure check the cooling system for leaks, and visually check for power steering leaks, especially around the power steering pump. The hoses regularly need to be tightened at the power steering pump, so do that first. Top up the washer fluid too.
