make sure to check radiator hoses and hoses into overflow tank (where you add the coolant) is car smoking? have you ran it while hot - as often times coolant level light does not come on until it is too late - I have gone through 1 engine that cooked - as a result of a heater core failure - so check carpet at passenger side and see if it smells of anti-freeze - could be head gasket problem - advise if still happening get to a good aftermarked Volvo shop ASAP
