Just bought my 6th Volvo - coolant ?; can I drive it 60 miles 200

So, yesterday I picked up my 6th Volvo. 93’ 244 with only 133 K miles. Overall it drove nicely, the PO buys/fixes/sells cars as a hobby. He has had it about 6 months. I asked about the coolant which is light brownish in color, not the nice green Volvo coolant. Said he just put in Prestone or something like that.

My first order of business will be to drain that crap out & fill with Volvo green coolant. Question is, can I drive it the ~ 55 miles home tonight?? I literally rolled in bed last night thinking - what if it boils or who knows what?#&@...

Anyway - appreciate your inputs as always.

My daughter’s 89’ 240 is running well. I’m starting to look for an S40 T5 to replace my venture into Audiland.



Thanks

Mike
