If leaking on the driver's side, check the heater hoses - two connections at the firewall, and two on the block. You'll have to remove the air intake box and hoses to see these.

If leaking on the passenger side, check the coolant reservoir for cracks or splits, and the small hose coming from the reservoir. Only other thing that could be leaking on this side of the car is the water pump -- It should appear that coolant is coming from behind the timing belt cover if this is the case.

If it is the water pump, go ahead and have the timing belt and tensioner done at the same time...should be no additional labor. Expect most shops to charge at least 6 hrs for this job + parts. 850s are pretty tight on that end of the engine, so it might be best to take it to someone familiar with Volvos. Hopefully there is an independent Volvo specialist in your area, as their labor rate is usually around half that of the dealer.

I have a 1981 Jeep CJ7 (Straight 6). When my jeep is running there are no leaks, but as soon as i turn it off coolant leaks from the metal pressure hose coming from the steering box. The leak is coming...

The metal hose would not have coolant in it if it connects to the steering box. That would be a power steering hose with power steering fluid. If coolant is leaking, it must be from the radiator. New radiators are not all that expensive, keep your ride good with a new radiator, or have a radiator shop seal the leak, clean and pressure test the old radiator. If any rust is in the radiator just replace it, or you will soon have new leaks.

Cold to hot

yes you could have air in the coolant system after replacing the hose. You need to bleed the coolant system.

My 99 surburban 1500 is leaking radiator fluid from the middle of the truck underneath.not from the radiator itself but from one of the 2 lines that run from the radiator down to the middle somewhere, its...

Sounds like the rear heater lines are leaking. You can cut them and replace them with rubber hose or by-pass it by just blocking them both off. The call is going to be made when you get on your back and slide under it to evaluate the condition of the rest of the line(s). Heater hose is what they use all the way back on conversion vans so don't be afraid of using a little hose if you need the rear heat next winter. st Just make sure you fasten it to the frame well so the snow and ice dont pull them down and brake them. (If you live in the snow belt like me)
Good Luck and God Bless

Leaking radiator fluid where lower hose connects w/core


If you have a leak near the lower radiator connection that just started, it is either a failed hose, or possibly a radiator core leak that is dripping down to that area.
If you havent changed your radiator hoses for awhile, and they feel soft, it isn't a bad idea to change them both. If you drain your radiator to change the hoses, this would be a good time to inspect the radiator, and perhaps you will find the source of the leak.

Leak undeneath upper radiator hose

The radiator on your Focus is mostly plastic on the top and bottom, and the middle section is aluminum/ alloy. If you examine the radiator, and are sure it isn't leaking from the hose connection, then the radiator will need repaired. sometimes, small leaks in the middle , metal section are sealed just by using some radiator stop leak in your engine's coolant. A radiator shop can replace the top or bottom plastic piece on your radiator too, and often it is a good idea to check the price of an entire radiator at your local auto parts store, as sometimes you can buy a radiator for less than the cost to repair your old one.
