1992 Volvo 960 - 2.9L 6 Cylinder 170,000 mi,
coolant forced out through plastic coolant reservoir. low coolant light comes on. finally oil had light brown muddy look, sort of like a latte. we had just bought this car froim a man named doug in marin county, california who cleaned it up and sold it to us as a good running vehicle. what a crook, its only been driven 200 miles since we bought it.

Head replaced in 2004, 2016 on the dot and head gasket goes. Chocolate milk oil, white smoke, rough idle, etc.

Coolant has to be topped off every 3 or 4 weeks. Need to replace Head gasket.. expensive fix.
