Not sure what this is, but you need to get this looked at very soon by a shop or someone that can diagnose this for you. Overheating this engine is the number one reason for engine damage, so don't let it overheat! http://repairpal.com/directory?address=90006&car_brand_names=Volvo

it sounds like the heater core might be clogged-up. try flashing the entire sysem out or check the heater core physically by taken it out..
