You might want to check if your resavoir is cracked first. if it is ok you can check your oil make sure there is no water in it the only other thing is to get a pressure test because if your head gasket is blown your water cood be going itno your exaust.

1995 Chev Tahoe 4 door. Water in rear cargo area near the rear doors. It leaks if I pour water over the rear of the roof near the top of the rear doors. All weather stripping on doors is in tact....

Check and make sure seals are even not warped. Check for rust around the are where it's leaking. If you have a compressor with a blow gun blow along the area where the water is leaking in. If you feel air coming through the area check and make sure the weather stripping is sealing properly. Doors could be out of alignment as well causing the leak. Or door seals could be rotting out.

2000 taures se loosing coolent and running hot

Where is it losing the coolant from? If it is from a hose replace them. If it is from the radiator, replace it! If it is coming out of the top of the radiator overflow reservoir then it could be either the thermostat not opening when it should or a water pump not circulating the water as it should.

I have considerable steam coming from the area of the rad cap. Temp gauge doesn`t indicate any overheating issues and the coolant reservoir is within the desired fill. However, coolant reservoir it has...

It may be the radiator cap itself, but is most likely a crack that has formed around of near the radiator, causing steam to exit from this area. It seems like it is a small leak, otherwise the coolant loss would not be so gradual. Radiator replacement will most likely solve this problem after the radiator is inspected and a crack is found. I do not recommend the use of Stop leak to correct leaking radiators, in the long run, they do more harm than good.

Hi Karen
The problem here could be that you may have a leak in your coolant reservoir. Especially if you can smell antifreeze (coolant) after driving it could be that some of the hoses may be plugged depending on age and when the radiator is trying to feed the fluid back into the reservoir it cant this can also impact the levels sensor.
Have the hoses checked as well as the coolant reservoir and check for fluids/moisture around the bottom of your radiator. It commonly is collecting around that area when you have a feedback issue.

ouch. leaking fluid and no signs of leak. check engine oil. if it appears milky, you are leaking into the cylinders. this means you'll need a new head gasket.

850 coollink leak

If leaking on the driver's side, check the heater hoses - two connections at the firewall, and two on the block. You'll have to remove the air intake box and hoses to see these.

If leaking on the passenger side, check the coolant reservoir for cracks or splits, and the small hose coming from the reservoir. Only other thing that could be leaking on this side of the car is the water pump -- It should appear that coolant is coming from behind the timing belt cover if this is the case.

If it is the water pump, go ahead and have the timing belt and tensioner done at the same time...should be no additional labor. Expect most shops to charge at least 6 hrs for this job + parts. 850s are pretty tight on that end of the engine, so it might be best to take it to someone familiar with Volvos. Hopefully there is an independent Volvo specialist in your area, as their labor rate is usually around half that of the dealer.
