2002 Volvo S60 Question: The car is consuming oil and coolant.

 

Question

Visitor, Turbo, El Cajon, CA, June 02, 2010, 08:09

The car is consuming oil and coolant. What is going on? I have never had this problem with other cars. I am not leaking oil or coolant. The car is just consuming it. Is this a sign of a major repair in my near future?

    This may be a sign that you have a blown headgasket. Do you have any problems starting the car in the morning? Do you see any smoke from the tailpipe? How often do you need to add oil and/or coolant?
