Hi everyone. I have a 2006 volvo S60 2.5T and it keeps using a lot of water. i will fill it with a 50/50 mix and with in 2 weeks the light will come on and it will need more. I haven't noticed it in the oil. but can't figure out were it is going. any ideas.

Check the water pump for leaks at the drive shaft, go for a drive and warm it up, so the water system is hot and pressured, then watch for drips from that area, also worth checking the hoses for pinholes, when hot and pressured up check for either a weep at the hose (the heat may well dry it as soon as it appears, it might just show as a discoloration)
good luck.

Grendel's suggestion is to be taken very seriously. Many (if not most) Timing Belt failures are due to leaky Water Pump bearings or seals, as the Water Pump is also driven off by the Timing Belt. As the leak accelerates, more noise of a "whirring" nature will probably be heard from inside the Camshaft Sprocket/Timing Belt Cover as the droplets of water impact on the belt's teeth . . . . converting them to an un-noticeable mist. Catching this before before it does damage to your belt (and engine) would be a very good idea.

This relationship and risk is the reason I change the Water Pump every other time I change the Timing Belt.
