Question about 2007 Volvo V40
Car did suffer a blown radiator 2 years ago and repaired but since then cannot stop oil coming out past the oil filler cap and leaking down side of the motor.
Could it be the vent system ( sump ) or slight cracked head gasket, how much approx to fix

go to any good parts store for cars and buy a can of BARS LEAK brand radiator sealant/stop leak, if the leak isn't to bad that will seal it up.
I show that the radiator for your car is around $295.00 new, source rockauto.com

If forced to guess, I'd have to say head gasket...but, could be cracked head also (can't really tell unless you tear it down, but to do the repair, either way that's what you need to do.) If residue was reddish, it could be the trans cooler in the radiator but it's not, so rule out radiator. Make sure you flush out system and change hoses during job ... oil softens them and makes them prone to failure. Even if head does not appear to be cracked, have it checked for warpage, sometimes they twist when overheated. Cracked blocks are rare...I would not be concerned unless engine was frozen during winter.

Is the bicycle for when your german car breaks down? PS the plastic radiator tanks, are of a recyclable plastic, go figure!
