Customer Question
Said coolant was low...

Said coolant was low and to stop safely. does that mean I have a leak

Mechanic's Assistant: How old are the hoses? And what driving conditions do you most often encounter?

I have no idea but I live in the south and don't drive in harsh weather . . . hot weather thought

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Volvo?

2004 S80

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your S80 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Well I was just going to add coolant. Is there ever a time you would add coolant but there is no leak?

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Is this a paid for site?

Was the car overheating?

Ask Your Own Volvo Question
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
no it was not. Ron, I think I need to stop this because nowhere did is say it would cost $24 after the mechanic answered. They tell you that after you put your credit card information in. I will not pay that because it was deceitfully done
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
Thank you anyway.

No problem, thank you as well.
