Volvo 240 GL Overheating

Hi,

I hav a 1982 Volvo 240 GL series (non turbo) my coolant boils over
within several minutes of starting the car. It just started hapening
one day and I even took (most) of the coolant out and replaced it and I
have the have problem. Someone told me to take the tempature sensor out
of my radiator hose but that doesn't seem very safe.

Its my only car so does anyone have any idea's?

Thank You!

Re: Volvo 240 GL Overheating

Seems like you have a headgasget that has to be replaced.
Removing the temperature sensor will not solve it/

Sorry.
