I have a 2008 XC70
Wagon. Twice the check coolant
light has come on, but never stayed on. The first time I had a mechanic check it. He opened the reservoir and saw that there was fluid in it. He said it must have been a glitch that the light went on. A few days later the same thing happened. The message was the same , but it went out again, nor did it come on again both times I restarted the engine
and drove the car some distance.
JA: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?
Customer: On the dashboard there is a screen with a message reading: coolant level low. Stop engine.
JA: Are you fixing your XC70 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I have done nothing so far. I do not work on my car myself, and know very little about problems like this.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Should I open the tank for the coolant and try to check the level, and should I add coolant. What specific coolant should I use?
