A fully functioning cooling system is a vital part in keeping your Volvo on the road. Run low on coolant and you can easily blow a head gasket or even blow-up an engine. So regular maintenance is vital. During servicing we check all the water and heater hoses and these can perish over time. We then do a visual check of the cooling system looking for any sign of leaks.
Lastly we top up the coolant with Volvo approved coolant. Any engine with an aluminium block or heads must use the correct coolant to avoid corrosion. Electrolysis can occur in a coolant system that can eat away the inside of your engine. The correct coolant not only helps to keep your Volvo running at the correct temperature on a hot day but also helps to protect your engine against corrosion.
