98 V70 T5 Replacing the Coolant Hoses in Pics

You’ll want to remove your air cleaner box and also the duct pointing to the front part of the car. The air cleaner is set in with some tabs into a rubber retainer. Just pull up and to the passenger side to get it out. There were a few connections that need to be removed as well. Finally, tie the accordion air duct out of the way so that you’ll have a clear view. They are already out in this picture. I just highlighted where these parts used to be. It really opens up the area.

Standing on the driver side, you can look are clearly see the large hose (lower radiator hose) where it connects to the neck into the engine block. You can also see where the heater hoses go into the firewall. The Lower radiator hose is not too hard to access at this point. Loosen the clamp (above the yellow arrow in the picture) and pull it off. The other end is on the bottom of the radiator on the driver side. You’ll have to remove the lower engine cover plastic to get access to that.

MVS Volvo Forums member extraordinaire CN90 writes a beautiful DIY for how to replace a 1998’s coolant hoses and radiator hoses.

This is strictly preventive maintenance:

– The Turbo Coolant Hose was bulging and about explode any time.
– The Lower Rad Hose is leaking at the radiator side.

– Lower Rad Hose PN 9470409 for Turbo (NA different PN); about $35 at dealer.
– Upper Rad Hose PN 1335433, about $15 at dealer.
– Turbo Coolant Inlet Hose PN 6842190, about $8 at dealer.

1998 vs. 1999 Changes & Differences

Well, what are they? MVS Forums member (hey, it’s free, why not register?) j-dawg and the rest of the crew answer this important bit of Volvo trivia. This is actually one of the more interesting bits of P80 lore, to me. No idea why. 98- cars don’t have the electronic throttle, VVT, solid lifters, as […]

MVS Forums member Robert shows us in a YouTube video how to do a key winterization procedure: “I flushed the coolant system in my 850. This process should be the same for most FWD Volvos, including the S70, V70, S40, C70, etc.” Coolant System Flush, Volvo 850, S70, V70 – Video
