Mysterious Coolant Consumption 1993 Volvo 940 900

The Volvo 700-900 FAQ has the procedure.

https://www.brickboard.com/FAQ/700-900/HeaterCoreReplacement.htm

How long has the coolant been in the engine? What antifreeze do you use when you mix up 50/50 coolant mix with distilled (never tap) water.

I'd not ever replaced a 700-900 heater core.

See engine cooling system info here:

https://www.brickboard.com/FAQ/700-900/Cooling.htm

Though I'll guess you've read through these Volvo 700-900 FAQ files.

Some more heater core leaks info:

https://www.brickboard.com/FAQ/700-900/HeatingAirConditioning.htm#HeaterCoreLeaking

So I hope others that have can provide you more guidance if the heater core replacement procedure here is incomplete or needs updating.

Also, info about electrolysis and heater cores that leak after replacement. A radiator shop may be able to mend the leak. Though if a leak formed inside it in one place, maybe elsewhere is another fault solder weld or something?

Dunno what heater core brands are best for your RWD Volvo.

Questions? Hope that helps.

MacDuffed.
