Q: Coolant/radiator 2000 Volvo C70

asked by on

Old radiator had small crack in it. But had no problems except replacing coolant frequently. Replaced radiator a week ago. Drove fine for a few days (about 300 miles). Then ran hot. I immediately pulled over before it got in the red. Coolant was coming from lid on reservoir. I replaced lid. It started sputtering while idling. As i pulled into driveway the hose going to thermostat busted. Replaced hose and thermostat. Bled the air out only way i know how. Its constantly losing coolant. Cant find where its leaking. No coolant in oil. No oil in coolant. Please help
