VOLVO S40 RADIATOR PROBLEM
2001 Volvo S40 • 87,000 miles

Did you bleed the system of any air? Are you sure the radiator isn't plugged? Are any of the hoses collapsing?
There are no hoses collapsing. how do i bleed the system of air? Not sure if radiator is clogged. cant find a radiator cap. just purchased this car used. new to this type of car

As far as the radiator, you may just have an overflow bottle with a pressurized lid on it. If so, that is the only place to add coolant and there isn't a cap on the radiator.
