C70 Overheating- Advice needed

2520 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Volvo Dan
My moms C70 went to the shop (of her choice based on proximity) after it overheated coming home from work. The shop installed a new radiator and hose, replaced the thermostat- she left and it overheated the next day SMFH!
It seems to be ok early in the day after sitting overnight but will show that it is running hot later in the day when it is warmer outside 60-70 degrees.

any suggestions on what to check next- They seem to be at a stand still..
If they cant get it figured out tomorrow I will be getting a refund and taking it to somewhere known more for volvo work that is a bit farther away.

Just got a call today and they said the headgasket and block are warped now and that it needs a new engine.
I am having it towed to the place I used when I owned the car that specializes in Volvos just to make sure... Hopefully its not done for!
