2 days later, did the same thing. Wouldn't start, tried several times. waited a few minutes and tried again, it started. Sounds like it is not getting any gas to it. Full tank of gas.

Just got a 1999 Volvo C70 yesterday it has 125K, it began with an estrange wooo when ac on, last night driving home then the low coolant light came on when the car was at rest. This morning drove it on the highway for an hour the ac stop shooting cold air and temperature went high up, I pulled over and coolant was coming out of the cap. I put more water drove home with no ac, got home and the now shows the engine check light on. What can be happening? and how can I fix it? I done some research here and there on the web, and the responses had been some how economical,the reservoir or lid, the thermostat, a sensor, the serpentine belt, clean the radiator, or bad hose.
But today I was quoted 2000+ from a mechanic that says that the only reason why there is overflow is because the head is bent, scratched or crack and the probably the water pump also, and basically a new engine, new gaskets, etc...
Due to air and boiling water from the reservoir. I was shock by his quote and telling me that it will need 8 days of labor,etc.. I really don't trust his answers since I left the car there for a couple of hours and all he did was put more water on the reservoir while the car cold and on, and showed me the water shooting up. The car runs fine has lots of power and no scarey noise or rattle on the engine just a woo high pitch sound from the reservoir.
Is he correct and I am screwed!! or could there be another answer... should I try everything else first?
This just started today, but is getting worse quickly. My tire looks fine
Took the car 2the shop 2get the check engine light looked at. The OBD-I, scanner says its the EGR SOLENOID. Is that the EGR valve or is it referring 2the CANISTER PURGE VALVE SOLENOID? The mechanic pointed 2the EGR valve & said 2clean it first & see if that doesnt solve the prob. I think its the canister valve. Any suggestions, anyone?

At a stoplight in 87 degree weather. Air got warmer and smoked and smelled. Got home and nothing is leaking and a/c sounds labored.
The dealer wants over $450.00 dollars. I was told because they would have to remove and replace certain parts in order to accomplish this task. I Didn't think replacing spark plugs could be so expensive. I am trying to save money.
