Question about Cars & Trucks
Gauge stays halfway point for about 10 miles or so, then it will rise quickly up to near the red sector on gauge. Stop for around two minutes and switch off, then when restarted the gauge usually goes slowly back down to half way point again over the next couple of miles. When it is running hot the engine loses some power. The heater control valve under the dash decided to expire last week and i have put a temporary bypass on the heater hoses till i can get around to tackling the job.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

You need to call a Volvo dealer. They'll likely ask you for a number on a sticker on the radio itself. You can find that sticker by pulling the radio out (push the 2 skinny vertical "bars" on each side of the radio to pop them out, then pull on them to pull out the entire radio unit).

1. Check on YouTube.. they have a very good vid posted, it is what i used.
2. You will need some specialty torx #20(?) and a metric ratchet set.
3. Go to local library and check out the Chilton Manual for 2000 Volvos.. very good resource.
4. Have a pro walk you through the procedure.
