My car started running low on coolant couple weeks ago,

Customer Question
My car started running...

My car started running low on coolant couple weeks ago, today I took it to a shop, there was no leaks, they flushed the coolant, then found out the engine could not get up to the operating temperature, at the beginning I thought the temperature gauge was broken, but they said it matches the temperature with the engine, and this morning when I trying to start the car, the car didn’t start the first time

Mechanic's Assistant: How old are the hoses? And have you tested the actual mix of your coolant?

It was after the mechanic flushed the coolant when they checked it

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

It is a 2006 Volvo S60R

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your S60 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I worked on some of the stuff, but nothing around the engine

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

I think that’s all for now
