Replacing freeze plugs is easy. Getting access to the one leaking may not be. Freeze plugs drive into their holes and you need access to do it. There are some aftermarket freeze plugs that can be installed and expanded into place with a wrench. But you still have to get to it. Depending on where it is, it may be easy to reach, or very difficult, such as on the rear of the engine where you must either remove the engine or transmission to gain access.

Sounds like your rotors are warped,, if you installed new disc brake pads and DID NOT turn the rotors.. there is a good chance they DO need turning...

Hello Joan,
The climate controls on your Volvo are all electronic at the control end, but likely have little vacuum motors to control the opening and closing of heater valves and air directional flaps in the innards of the dashboard. With the "mature" nature of your vehicle, it is sometimes a cracked vacuum hose or that the rubber end is getting a little hard and now leaking at the nipple where it is plugging into the vacuum valve. IF this is the issue, you MAY be able to here a hissing noise immediately after turning off the engine. Crawl down and get your head (ears) right under the dash. There may be a cardboard/plastic cover plate on the underside of the dash that you have to remove to get access.
But from the symptoms that you describe in your post, "Temperature dial has lost it's clicks"... I SUSPECT that the contacts on the control module may be totally worn out for both the direction of flow and the temperature control. Modules are available on eBay/Amazon (usually used) and it should be quite straight forward on how to remove / replace. The link below provides both links to purchase the control and also some YouTubes on how to replace it.
Hey... do you have a Pick-n-Pull or similar self-serve auto-wrecker near by? Often you can see what vehicles they have on their lot. It appears that s70 v70 and c 70 Volvos from 1998-2000 all have the same control unit. I've also included the part number in one of the photos... do a search for that and you may find more hits.

I hope this helps you Joan!

How does it "sound like it's going bad"? It's aftermarket, and it isn't the same as OEM. It won't sound the same either. That doesn't mean it's bad. They might have left a gasket loose, making an unusual and loud sound.

I hear that, about parts not necessary. Quite a discrepancy among those mechanics. All I could say is to find a mechanic who is familiar with Volvos.
My suggestion,. without knowing what codes were given, is that possibly your throttle body needs cleaning. This is where the air enters the engine, and carbon or fuel deposits tends to build up there. It can get black and dirty over time, and cause problems like rough idle or hesitation.
But anyway, find a smart and honest mechanic-not always easy, but they should be better than guessing after getting the codes.

That sounds like a fault in the cylinder head gasket. Check your oil for water, it makes the underside of the filler look like grey mayonnaise. Check the coolant for oil. And then you have a leak in the pipes to the heater core or the core itself.

Or is may be that when the heater core leaked, the coolant fell on oil or grease and it is drying out?

possible bad coil...download ecm codes to see

You need a locksmith with the correct equipment. There is no "simple code" otherwise thieves would exploit it.
Be sure and have the title available as the locksmith doesn't know if you stole the car either.
Do call many places for prices as I just found out with getting a second key made for my 99 Ranger, prices ranged from $120 to $220!

You need to leave the key in the ignition in position I (accessory) for two hours, after that it will say code and you can input the code. The radio switches to "OFF" after three failed attempts with the wrong code. If you dont have the code call the dealership with your VIN and they can give it to you.

if the drive belt is still in position and its tension is correct then the obvious answer is that the steering pump has failed internally
