Question about 1998 Volvo V70
If there is water in your oil, STOP. There have to be other symptoms such as needing to add water, loss of power and poor running condition. This is an indication of needing a new head gasket and is an involved job. The more you continue to drive it the more damage is done to the head, cylinders and engine block. If this has just started, you stand a better chance of having the gasket replaced, cylinder head machined (might as well have the valves ground while it is off and have new valve stem seals installed), oil changed and the cooling system flushed. Have the timing belt replaced as well if it has not been done in 60,000 miles or is getting close it. Good cars and are worth the money. Mkae sure it is a trusted tech who also knows German/Swedish cars, good rep., and offers a warranty with his workmanship.
