How do you replace a freeze plug in 98 volvo s70
Replacing freeze plugs is easy. Getting access to the one leaking may not be. Freeze plugs drive into their holes and you need access to do it. There are some aftermarket freeze plugs that can be installed and expanded into place with a wrench. But you still have to get to it. Depending on where it is, it may be easy to reach, or very difficult, such as on the rear of the engine where you must either remove the engine or transmission to gain access.

1998 Volvo S70 2.0 L Air conditioner not working correctly
The climate controls on your Volvo are all electronic at the control end, but likely have little vacuum motors to control the opening and closing of heater valves and air directional flaps in the innards of the dashboard. With the "mature" nature of your vehicle, it is sometimes a cracked vacuum hose or that the rubber end is getting a little hard and now leaking at the nipple where it is plugging into the vacuum valve. IF this is the issue, you MAY be able to here a hissing noise immediately after turning off the engine. Crawl down and get your head (ears) right under the dash. There may be a cardboard/plastic cover plate on the underside of the dash that you have to remove to get access.
But from the symptoms that you describe in your post, "Temperature dial has lost it's clicks"... I SUSPECT that the contacts on the control module may be totally worn out for both the direction of flow and the temperature control. Modules are available on eBay/Amazon (usually used) and it should be quite straight forward on how to remove / replace. The link below provides both links to purchase the control and also some YouTubes on how to replace it.
Hey... do you have a Pick-n-Pull or similar self-serve auto-wrecker near by? Often you can see what vehicles they have on their lot. It appears that s70 v70 and c 70 Volvos from 1998-2000 all have the same control unit. I've also included the part number in one of the photos... do a search for that and you may find more hits.
I hope this helps you Joan!

How does it "sound like it's going bad"? It's aftermarket, and it isn't the same as OEM. It won't sound the same either. That doesn't mean it's bad. They might have left a gasket loose, making an unusual and loud sound.
My 1998 Volvo S70 occasionally dies at stop lights
I hear that, about parts not necessary. Quite a discrepancy among those mechanics. All I could say is to find a mechanic who is familiar with Volvos.
My suggestion,. without knowing what codes were given, is that possibly your throttle body needs cleaning. This is where the air enters the engine, and carbon or fuel deposits tends to build up there. It can get black and dirty over time, and cause problems like rough idle or hesitation.
But anyway, find a smart and honest mechanic-not always easy, but they should be better than guessing after getting the codes.
