2008 xc70 coolant leak ID (drivers side of engine)

Post by Bluegrassxc70 »

I’m having trouble determining the part needed or issue I’m having with a coolant leak. It appears to be coming from a fitting on the drivers side of the engine. Here is a video. (I mention that the house looks like it goes into the block or water pump etc. I realize now that’s not the case. https://youtu.be/Sv22717VdZo.

I also noticed that that fitting looks like it has grooves in it for one of those metal wire clamps (not a worm gear clamp but the simple wire ones that you just push in. ). There is not clamp present. Possibly the issue?

Looking at the Video I think you need


Take a look at this post for the first cousin with the same 3.2 as yours


If you don't mind the part coming in a LAND ROVER box then get this

LR005564 - Coolant Hose

If you have to have a VOLVO part then

30774513 - the same hose but in a blue box

Since you are going to drain the coolant you should think about replacing the Thermostat and another small hose


Good luck
