2003 Volvo S60 Question: overheating
Answer #1Bret Bodas from RepairPal Test Shop, January 08, 2011, 17:06Master
This is kind of an odd symptom for an S60. I would try to make sure it is actually running hot, because it may be a gauge or sensor problem. This will require using an infrared thermometer. I would also check that the cooling fan is operating properly.
Hope that helps, good luck!
