Vehicle went in for service 3 weeks before problem. After a while felt car was overheating, although indicator showed normal. After taking in car for a check, on the way back home driving temperature gauge shot up and switched engine off immediately. Got car towed back and Volvo Dealer said a hose had blown which drained all coolant out of car, and lead to overheating engine. Engine block was warped, which meant a replacement - AARGHHH. 1 month after a general service! What irritated me is that as we saw temp go up we shut down the engine right away, but it still got warped.. VERY expensive problem...
