Question about Volvo Cars & Trucks
As soon as the temp goes over halfway the car's motor stops
Run fault codes as the sensor may be faulty telling the CPU that the engine is over heating and should stop.

SOURCE: engine temp gets hot
Check the coolant level and inspect to see if the engine fan is working. If the overheating had been going on for some time and persistent, then you may need to check if your top cylinder gasket is not burnt. In addition, you need to check if the fan is running at the specified speed. If it is not, then it is not delivery to requirement and may cause overheating. Start from the cheapest and gradually work up until the problem is solved. Goodluck!

as soon as you turn it on after it has been shut off for how long? you could have a bad sensor. if you have a sohc (single overhead cam) engine you have a coolant temp sensor. if you have a dohc (double overhead cam) engine you have a cylinder head temp sensor. either way you will need to start with everything cooled off, drain the coolant, remove and replace the sensor. for the sohc engine you have to remove the ignition coil to get to the sensor, for the dohc you have to remove the alternator. in both engines you are supposed to torque the bolts that hold the sensor in place to 89 in-lbs, tight enough to not have a coolant leak at that point, and not so tight that you stretch the bolts or break them off in the block. if you still have a problem after you replace the sensor then you probably have a bad water pump. hope that helps.

SOURCE: temp gauge reads hot when cold
That wire you are unplugging is pinched and being shorted to ground ! You need to trace that wire until you find it . Also if anyone has done any repairs recently you may want to start looking in that area .

if the gauge goes straight to half, even when the engine is stone cold, i would suspect a bad temperature gauge sending unit. you will find it near the thermostat housing. good luck!
