SOURCE: Replace Heater Core for Volvo S70 (1999)

It is your heater core. I fixed mine for $144. Ordered the new part on Ebay and followed these instructions It was very simple, I'm a middle age grandmother! The hardest part was cleaning up all the antifreeze. You will need a shopvac, a small one is $20 at WalMart.

Both radiator hoses are hard why 98 s70 volvo turbo

It has been my experience that both radiator hoses get hard with age, check the hoses for age and cracking because they usually are hard right before they give out. They get hard when they get old due to excessive oil covering because of an oil leak and heat from the engine and the coolant within the hose.

Why is the headlight on passenger sider much dimmer than on drivers side?Any help?

You probably have an earth or short on the live feed to the bulb. Use a multi-meter set to 20V dc and measure the voltage between the live and neutral on the bulb holder, it should be around 12v

I am looking for a procedure to replace the radiator in my '98 S70 nonturbo with AC.

Hi Steve:

The first thing to do is remove the negative battery cable, this will wipe out the presets on you radio and Nav if you have it. If this is not a problem the next step is to find the drain if it has one. You should collect as much of the fluid as possible. You can dump it down the toilette if you have to but dumping is in the storm drain will kill fish, dogs and other pets. They will drink it, it is sweet and it is poison. That said consider replacing the hoses at the same time you will probably damage them and you don\'t want to do this job twice.

Open the radiator cap.

Remover the lower hose and then the upper hose. Some cars and trucks also use the radiator to cool the transmission if this is the case there will be two additional steel tubes attached to the radiator. Spray the threads with liquid wrench or another good quality penetration oil. WD40 is not a penetrating oil. Buy the liquid wrench.

If you are removing the transmission lines you will want to invest in a set of tube wrenches. This might seem expensive but if you strip those nuts you will wish you never tried this job. You can buy them at sears or most auto parts stores if you don\'t have them.

The AC has its own condenser coil, it usually sits in front of the radiator. The condenser coil has aluminum tubes do not disconnect them.

I guess at this point I assumed you removed the cowling. If not you will need to do so. I don\'t know if you have electric fans or a belt driven fan. Some times if you have a belt driven fan you can just move the cowling back and not have to remove it completely. If you must remove it completely you may need to remove the fan first.

With that out of the way there should now be two bolts holding two clamps with rubber bushings holding the radiator in place. Remove these and your ready to remove the radiator.

Best of luck

Try replacing the spark plugs and I HIGHLY recommend factory plugs, they run way better and last way longer. From LOTS of personal experience. Plugs are the most common cause of misfires in a Volvo
