98 Volvo S70 anti-freeze question

#1

For about a month and a half my anti-freeze light has been lighting up. Mechanic said don’t worry, just add some anti-freeze. I just realized that my drivers side floor is soaked in anti-freeze. Mechanic does not know why. Any suggestions? Besides getting a new mechanic?

Most likely you will need a new heater core, but check the hoses to the heater core first, just in case one is leaking and somehow the coolant is getting into the passenger compartment.


#3

I’ll second Keith and also agree that you need to find another mechanic if he does not have a clue as to why this can happen.


#4

definitely get a new mechanic. Go with the heater core.

Its likely a pricey fix, like the others said heater core is likely culprit. Get it fixed ASAP and leave your windows cracked. Anti-freeze is terrible thing to be breathing in health wise.
