What is the indication that the car is overheating, is it the temp gauge or is the cooling system overflowing? A high tech scan tool can read the actual engine temperature, maybe you gauge is faulty.
If car is actually overheating, other areas to check or suspect is the water pump, hoses or there maybe some obstruction in the engine itself.

Remove the top hose, unbolt the thermostat housing, remove old themostat and install new unit with new gasket. Replace top hose and fill with coolant. Be sure to re-check the coolant level after start up, beore you drive it anywhere, to eliminate any air pockets in the coolant.

1999 volvo s70 overheating


Yes this has happened to me. The coolant temperature sensor tells the radiator fan when to turn on to cool the radiator. When this sensor is faulty your vehicle is overheating and it can cause a blown head gasket if not replaced. I hope this was helpful.
