Question about 1997 Volvo 850
There is a leakinside the passenger compartment in the heater core housing.
Could be the heater core or a hose connection to the core.
The coolant is exiting to the ground outside through the water drain tube attached to the bottom of the heater housing (normally, this drain tube will drain water that was condensed by the A/C).
A quick repair, if you don't need the heater for now:
Under the hood, re-route the heater hoses by connecting each hose end to each other with a 5/8 inch diameter hose connector (like splicing a garden hose).
Eventually, the heater core will need to be replaced.
