Question about 1996 Volvo 850
Tonight driving home approaching a stop sign felt a little loss of power and then car went completely off. Tried to restart all light on dash lit up, cranked but wouldn't start. Got out popped hood, puddle under car. Smell of antifreeze. Then battery died from flashers on for 5 min (battery is only 2 yrs old) jumped battery tried to restart car started and then sputtered out & so did battery. Would it be head gasket?? Alternator?? Thanks
I would check that the auxilliary drive belt that runs the alternator and probably the water pump hasn't just broken, causing the engine to overheat and the battery to run flat. Just a suggestion, hope it helps.
