Question about 1998 Volvo S70
The car started over heating but i had to get where i was going. Found the leak in the heater hose? i think anyways. its coming out of the firewall down into the engine. So the plan.. Take hose off see if there is enough room to cut it off and reattach. If not replace the whole thing which honestly looks like a pain. Any suggestions welcome.

It is your heater core. I fixed mine for $144. Ordered the new part on Ebay and followed these instructions http://www.volvospeed.com/vs_forum/index.php?showtopic=9717 It was very simple, I'm a middle age grandmother! The hardest part was cleaning up all the antifreeze. You will need a shopvac, a small one is $20 at WalMart.

SOURCE: Car Heater smells strange
from he Popular Mechanics site if the smell in your car is like maple syrup:
(1) SMELLS LIKE: MAPLE SYRUP
WHEN: After the engine has warmed or possibly even after it's shut off for a few minutes.
THE CULPRIT: Coolant containing sweet-smelling (but toxic) ethylene glycol is leaking from somewhere. It could be coming from a radiator or heater hose, a failed intake manifold gasket or cylinder head. It might be coming from a leaky radiator cap or the radiator itself, especially if you smell it outside the car. A strong odor inside the passenger compartment probably means a bad heater core.

Not enough information here, but I would always replace the crank shaft position sensor first. Its at the rear of the engine, it senses grooves in the flywheel. Next I would check the fuel pump relay. Finally the Airflow meter.
