Yesterday the throttle mechanism on the fuel pump wore a hole through the coolant hose coming from the car heater. My wife told me two days ago they she had seen a pool of coolant under SoDak, but I totally forgot about it :/ The temp gauge went sky high and I shut the motor off immediately and coasted to a stop at the side of the road. A picture for those of you who might wish to make it to the next freeway exit.

Hose only available from Volvo $58 Ouch!
Part #1328110

The old hose was some fabricated piece of you know what, hence the clearance issues. The new hose fits perfectly. It better for what Volvo charges!

Car still runs great, no problems.
