Check the engine oil and transmission oil. you might even need to take the car into the dealer and hook it up to the diagnostic computer to trouble shoot the problem.

The only reason coolant would be steaming in the reservoir is if it were steaming out of the radiator into the reservoir. consult local technician to see if your engine coolant temp sensor is operating properly; most likely a bad engine temp sensor.

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.

1999 volvo s70 rich black smoke runs bad


Black smoke indicates a rich or too much fuel condition. First thing to check is the fuel pressure regulator on the injector fuel rail. Pluu the vacuum hose off and look for signs of fuel in the vacuum hose. They will rupture the diaphragm and suck fuel in to the intake. Can also be caused by a faulty 02 sensor, bad MAF sensor or bad coolant temp sensor. If the check engine light is on check codes and post the codes.

How to turn off service engine light on 98 volvo s70. just did oil change


There is unfortunately no "trick" for this. You will need the service light reset tool. On some other Volvo models it was possible to reset the light by holding down the reset button for the trip meter and turning the key to position II - keep holding the reset button down for about 30 seconds.
