Hi All,
In the past 2 month, I have run out of coolant three times - in fact I had to refill with water only today. What could be causing the problem? I have not noticed anything unusual, no overheating, etc?
Thanks for your help.

You need to have someone pressure test the system to find the leak.

Thanks for the advice - I will ask the Volvo dealer "pressure test the system to find the leak".
I find that sometimes they are clueless unless you ask them to do specific tests/fixes.

Hope this is not a duplicate

But we had this problem when our car was relatively new approx 20k miles. The car would suck down a little water but not much, about a pint per month.
This was enough to cut on the low coolant light and was a bit annoying.

After several tries at the dealer we finally had them change the Head gasket. The car now has 50k miles with no problems.

The problem just kept getting worse and in the past month I found myself filling up with water after every 1000km or so - it was the radiator leaking:-(
