Q: overheating on 2003 Volvo S60

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
when idling the temp is fine, drive a short distance and car begins to overheat. Changed thermostat, didn't help. Any ideas?
(1) Answer
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!
