One last note on this topic, I bought and used the OEM Cooling Refiller kit that I provided the link on Amazon with. It worked very well. In fact I discovered a cooling system leak on my upper radiator hose with it. Take note on that ....on my 2012 XC70, I bought a replacement hose before removing the leaking hose. I should have removed it first, there is an O-ring in there that was causing the leak. I could have just replaced that for a couple of $$ ...not the $40 that a Volvo hose costs. Also ...getting those hoses on and off is a lot of fun. They have to match up correct to a couple of slots on them and require a lot of force to take off and put on ...think crowbar! Maybe I have helped someone else here ...as so many others have helped me. Thanks, RH
